Child's death ruled as accidental

October 26, 2004

Berrien County - The death of a 10-year-old boy found hanging from a tree house last week is ruled accidental.

Ten-year-old Christopher Strickland was found dead outside his aunt's home near Alapaha last Wednesday morning. Investigators say he had been swinging from a tree house and somehow got tangled in the rope.

After an autopsy and interviewing the child who was playing with Christopher, the death was ruled an accident.
