NEWPORT, WA (AP)-- A university student tied to a pickup and dragged to his death on a rural road had been threatening people with an ax during a night of heavy drinking at a hunting campsite, witnesses told police.
Wendell C. Sinn Jr. was jailed for investigation of second-degree murder in the death of Jerid S. Sturman-Camyn near Usk, about 45 miles north of Spokane, Pend Oreille County sheriff's deputies said.
Sturman-Camyn, 20, described as a martial arts enthusiast, lost his temper, grabbed an ax and threatened others during a drinking party at Sinn's hunting camp late Saturday, witnesses told deputies.
According to a sheriff's office statement, Sinn told a 17-year-old boy to get into the pickup and be prepared to flee.
Sinn, 45, of Newman Lake, then reportedly tied a rope to the truck's trailer hitch and to Sturman-Camyn and told the teenager to drive away. The 17-year-old apparently was unaware that he was dragging Sturman-Camyn when he drove away in fear, the sheriff's statement said.
Deputies found the pickup with Sturman-Camyn's body after the 17-year-old called to report someone was chasing him down a road with an ax and another person called and reported a body being dragged by a pickup.
There was no word early Monday whether Sinn had a lawyer to speak for him or whether the 17-year-old would face charges.
Sturman-Camyn, a civil engineering student at Eastern Washington University, had been training at a martial arts in Spokane for about eight months, The Spokesman-Review newspaper reported Monday.

Sinn should be held fully responsible for this act.

It's almost premeditated if you think about it. Sinn, at age 45, gets the teenager in the truck, ties the victim to the truck's hitch and then yells at the kid to hurry and get away so he won't be harmed by Sturman-Camyn who is now in no position to be a threat. That is first degree murder at its worst. Sinn could have called police.

Okay, i knew the kid personally and he was not like that. that article was a lie... he never threatened no one with an axe. and even worse the terrible person who did it is no longer in jail. but of course people who ruin their own lives with drugs and what not are still in there. what is up with that??
