UPDATE - Bounty Hunter Was Drunk And Died From His Own Gun
Autopsy results shows that a bounty hunter died from his own gun. Joseph Scott Horne was intoxicated when he went to try to apprehend a man suspected of jumping bail. He confronted the wrong man and a scuffle ensued. Three bullets were fired. One creased the cheek of David Cresong, another went through Horne's left arm, through a lung and then through his heart. The grand jury refused to indict Cresong, saying his actions were justifiable. Sullivan County DA Barry Staubus wants to revoke the bail bond license of 78 year old Ralph Hawkins who hired Horne to go after the fugitive. Horne was a convicted felon and prohibited from being a bounty hunter. (jb)
