(Fox News) It is unclear when the letter arrived at the Ohio sheriff’s office, but authorities say the note was a brief apology for the shooting death of a hunter last month.
The note was unsigned, and reads, "I am so sorry for the hurt and pain that I caused on that day can u please tell the family I am sorry."
The Columbus Dispatch first reported the note stemmed from the fatal shooting of Larry Bradley, 45, an Iraq war veteran and father, who was in a tree stand in Gallia County, which is near the West Virginia border. Bradley was found dead on Dec. 2, the first day of deer-hunting season with a bullet that entered his back, below his rib cage and exited his body, the report said.
