Mystery bullet killed Yakima teen hunter
The sheriff's office said Thursday that all the firearms carried by the teen and members of the hunting party went through ballistics tests at a state crime laboratory and none matched the fatal bullet.
The 16-year-old, Sergio Tinajero, was separated from six relatives on Nov. 15 when he was shot in a wooded area about 13 miles west of Newport. His body was discovered by his father about 200 yards off a logging road.
Yakima Herald-Republic reports all family members all cooperated with investigators.
Deputies swept the surrounding area but have no leads on who fired the shot.
