Hunter who drowned in Kansas was Ill. native

THEBES, Ill. (AP) — A hunter who drowned in an icy Kansas lake was a native of the southern Illinois town of Thebes.

The sheriff’s department in northeast Kansas’ Geary County released the man’s identity. It says 31-year-old Army Spc. Thomas Hedrick of Fort Riley died Tuesday while duck hunting at Milford Lake.

Geary County Sheriff Tony Wolf says Hedrick went out on a makeshift boat to retrieve a duck shot by his hunting partner from shore. Wolf says Hedrick stepped onto an ice sheet when the boat began taking on water, then fell through the ice.

WSIL-TV in Carterville, Ill., says Hedrick originally was from Thebes, a 430-resident Mississippi River village in Illinois’ Alexander County.
