Odds and Ends: Man shot while picking apples in Delta County, MI

GLADSTONE, Mich. – An Upper Peninsula hunter says she was trying to shoot a bird, but ended up hitting an apple picker in Delta County.

Michigan State Police report from the Gladstone post that 41-year-old Richard Koski of Rockvaile, Tenn., was picking apples on private property when he was struck by 14 pellets.

WLUC-TV says the shooter, 65-year-old Stella Norman of Rock, told officers she was aiming for a partridge and didn’t realize Koski was in her line of fire. He was standing on the ground at the time.

Koski’s wounds were not life-threatening. He was treated at Marquette General Hospital and released.

No charges have been filed. Police say they’re still investigating.

    Have mummy, will travel: Mexican corpses on tour

    MONTERREY, Mexico – First they jet-setted to Monterrey in specially designed glass cases. Crowds lined the streets to watch them pass.

    Only in Mexico, where a fascination with death dates back to pre-Hispanic times, could mummified corpses receive the same welcome as a celebrity.

    The 15 females, eight males and one head make up a macabre troupe of 100-year-old corpses visiting this industrial city from Guanajuato’s Museum of the Mummy. They are part of a special exhibition in Monterrey that runs through Dec. 28.

    The collection is believed to be the largest in the Western Hemisphere. And the 23 corpses and head in Monterrey are the largest group from the museum to ever hit the road.More than 300,000 people are expected to view the bodies.
