Police are trying to find the person or persons who shot 62-Year-old Chong Moua Yang of Lansing, Michigan. He went deer hunting the day before Thanksgiving and never returned. His family called the authorities and they discovered his body on a parcel of state-owned land near his home.
According to The Lansing State Journal, the family believes Chong Yang’s death was accidental. But They didn’t rule out that someone may have accidentally shot Chong Yang and tried to cover it up. Chong Yang’s death remains under investigation by police, the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office and the state Department of Natural Resources. Police don’t have a suspect at this time.
“Right now, until we get more information, the family is saying we believe it was some type of hunting accident,” Joseph Yang, the families attorney said. “Whether (someone) shot him because they thought he was a deer or some type of animal, or it was a shot misplaced, we don’t know.”
Ia Yang, Chong’s daughter, told News 10 her family is seeking justice. She added that hunting was his favorite thing to do.
“Hunting is basically his life. This time of the year he lives out in the woods basically,” she said. “My father was a kind, hardworking, generous person. We just want closure, justice for my dad. That’s it.”
Please if you have any information about this case do the right thing and get in contact with the authorities.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Det. Bryan Miller at 517-641-6271 or central dispatch at 989- 224-6792.
