Attorney: State agents 'whitewashed' deputies killing man

A local attorney believes state investigators deliberately ignored important details while determing if charges should be filed against two Sandusky County deputies who shot and killed a man in his home last year.

“Having whitewashed the investigation (the Bureau of Criminal Identification agents) created a false sense that what they did was proper,” said Dennis Murray Sr., who is representing the family of 26-year-old Bryan Jones in a wrongful death lawsuit against the Sandusky County Sheriff’s Office, the county and the deputies.

Murray is not alone in his criticism of BCI. Other experts who reviewed the file raise other issues with the killing of Bryan Jones, and the mop up afterwards.
