Earl Price, 13 year old Eugene
boy, whose body was found in-the
Coast range mountains after he
had been sought for a week, died
from -a bullet from his own rifle,
fired accidentally, in the opinion
of Inspector Robert ' Craddock,
Portland police . ballistic expert.
and Sheriff Frank E. Taylor of
Lane - county. . This decision - was
arrived at -today during an exam
inatlon of the gnu, - shells and
pieces of the bullet taken from the
boy's body. The . youth - became
separated from his . father . while
they were hunting In the. moun
Inspector Craddock explained
that the primer of tho exploded
shell in the carbine ahowed that
tho hammer had apparently struck
something .hard on the ground as
the boy- pulled the weapon to
ward him as he was backing thru
the heavy underbrush. -:
. The path of the bullet through
tho boy's : body was such that ft
could not have been caused by a
richotted bullet as was first be
lieved. The ; pellet entered the
thigh and ranged upward. In such
a direction that It was apparent
It came rom below. '
Craddock advanced tho theory
that as the youth was scrambling
through the timber, he held the
rifle by the barrel and allowed
tne hammer to strike a 'log or
rock causing it to strike and ex
plode the shell.' The dent in-the
primer indicated the hammer had
struck with more than usual force
a force greater . than that ex
erted by the spring when the trig
