Who killed Jacob Limberios?

Sandusky County officials investigating the March 2, 2012, shooting death of 19-year-old Jacob Limberios, have irrefutable evidence the teenager did not shoot himself, according to the attorney representing the Limberios family.

On Thursday, forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht released "incontrovertible forensic scientific proof" that someone else shot Jacob. Tissues samples show no gunpowder residue in the area of the wound, and that shows Jacob could not have been holding the gun when it was fired, according Wecht. Sandusky County sheriff's detective Sean O'Connell retrieved tissue samples from Wecht some time ago, but it's unclear what county officials did with the samples.

Special prosecutor Dean Henry, a Sandusky County attorney appointed to investigate the investigation and also defend Sandusky County sheriff Kyle Overmyer, County prosecutor Thomas Stierwalt and the three witness to Jacob's death in a lawsuit filed by his family has not given any indication when he will wrap up the investigation.

The one-year anniversary of Jacob's death is Saturday.

I do NOT TRUST CYRIL.... he makesthese thypes of claims,and in his last 1200 professional court testimonies, his type of evidence, was reversed ALMOST 74% of the time.. THIS POOR KID DID NOT KILL HIMSELF, and,he looks to make more money from his WIFES TV SHOW, AND HER LEGAL PRACTICE... The family should have requested forensic pathologist from OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY, not a celeb sell to all man who isn't very accurate.
BUT.... IT DOESN'T TAKE A CYRIL, OR EVEN A COUNTY HACK to see... this poor boy did not kill himself. AND THE COVER UP ALONE, shows, how inept these guys from that county really are, in light of all investitigation reports.

Someone is not telling the truth, and the evidence and science will prove that. Charge them all, then you will see them talk!

There is more than a little conflict of interest by Dean Henry. How can he be a prosecutor, a investigator and a defender in the same case?

He's a trip, isn't he?

Keep the heat on until the truth comes out !

I agree.

If this information is upsetting to members of the public, members of te public should show that outrage

Thanks for the comments, reader, centauri.

AMEN, Matt.

On occasion, somethings do get run into the ground, as expected, and the SR should feel the heat. For the most part IMHO, the SR does a good job of keeping the public informed.

I wouldn't comment if it didn't. I don't comment here to have someone else "like" me, either.

Prayers go out to the family. As any other parent, all they want is the truth to what happened to their son.

This is taking far too long to get answers to something that should have had answers long ago. Why? Where is all this evidence going?

Why are the subpoenas not being answered and these people being made to answer questions under oath? Doesn't the law apply to everyone? Or is the sheriff, the coroner and the others above the law? Sure seems that way.

Why are the subpoenas not being answered?

My experience with that --- whenever somebody tries to avoid being served with a subpoena that requests records, it's a sure bet the records will show that they did something illegal. If by some chance they get tricked into signing for the subpoena and they rush out and get an attorney to have a judge quash it, then it's a given that they did something illegal .... and the same goes for the JUDGE that quashes it.

I have to say first that this appears to be one of the sloppiest, most unprofessional investigations I have ever heard of. That said,however, I have some reservations about Dr. Wecht's conclusions. Gun shot residue to the wound can be informative,but not definitive. It's my understanding that distance not only affects the amount of residue, but also the angle of the shot, whether the shot traveled through material and a whole host of other variables. I would think the most definitive test would be a GSR test to the hands. No GSR to the hands would mean he wasn't holding the gun or in very close contact to it. Why wouldn't those findings be released? The family deserves to know why this young man died, whether murder, accident or horseplay turned tragic. They need the truth, not a Department covering up their ineptitude or a doctor for hire exaggerating his expertise. It's past time for the Department to "man up" and admit they screwed up the entire investigation. Bring in specialists who have nothing to lose, or gain, and let the evidence tell the story.

I couldn't agree more sash. I just don't understand how this continues to go on, that nobody is held accountable. If the coroner would have sent the body for an autopsy that night....this would probably not be happening. It just doesn't make sense. And the fact that Sandusky County Officials don't see this, and that nobody above them at the state level steps in, I just don't get it.

WELL SOMEONE KNOWS WHO SHOT THIS KID! PERIOD! IF I WERE THE LAW I WOULD ARREST EVERY CHILD THAT WAS ON SCENE WITH HIM, AND EVENTUALLY THEY WOULD START TALKING! someone IS GOING TO TELL

The county just makes itself look worse with all these delay tactics.

The truth will be exposed.

My deepest sympathies to the friends and family of this young man.
