Sandusky County won't release body

Officials provide no response to family's request for re-burial.
May 7, 2013


Sandusky County special prosecutor Dean Henry refuses to say when Jacob Limberios' body will be returned to the family for reburial.

"No family should have to bury their child three times," one reader commented at

Dean Henry referred questions to Dr. Cynthia Beisser, a deputy coroner with the Lucas County Coroner's Office, but Beisser said she is prohibited from comment by office policy. 

"I want to know when we'll have him back. I want to visit with my son," Shannon Limberios said.

His grave site has become a focal point for the family, she said, since they made the painful decision in September to exhume Jake's body for an autopsy.  

Beisser conducted an autopsy last week but county officials have said they want the second tissue sample from the autopsy the family obtained. Dr. Cyril Wecht, a forensic pathologist in Pittsburgh, has retained half of the sample he removed during the autopsy he conducted for the family. He found Jacob's death was in a likelihood the result of a homicide as the evidence shows it was not possible for Jacob to be holding the gun when it killed him.

Henry has not responded to a request for comment concerning the family's request that Jacob's body be returned. 


Truth or Dare

Just another red flag/clear sign that LE from outside of the State of Ohio should step in, TODAY!


Why would they need the other tissue sample? So they can have ALL of the last few shreds of evidence to destroy? Dr. Wecht and Dr.Besser should make arrangements so she can examine the other half of the sample in Wecht's presence if it is a necessity for her to examine the other half. This is getting ridiculous.

Mr. Henry, I certainly hope you understand we will all be held accountable for our actions on judgement day. The way you have contributed to this family's pain just baffles me. Just in case you have never opened a Bible, " for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord." Romans 12:19
God knows what it feels like to lose a son. May he open your eyes and let you feel some compassion for this family....

This is beyond ridiculous!!!! Dean don't you think this family has endured enough??? What purpose does this serve to hang onto Jacob's body?? This family has been through enough already. This makes me sick!!


I agree here MHS. Enough already!! Why couldn't they have taken enough of a sample to do all they testing they wanted and then released his body back to the family?? Do they think they're going to get different results if they take them later? Isn't that the definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results?? I really hope that the family is looking into a civil suit over all this against the county. I'm not typically one to say do that but in this case I think it's totally warranted!!


What's "voice of Fremont" have to say about this?! This is insane. I cannot imagine the pain if this was my child. I pray someone steps in and takes care of these monsters.

sandtown born a...

Vof will say its all someone elses fault im sure


At first, we thought this "ANONYMOUS" group was a little creepy. We have now changed our minds. Please keep putting the pressure on, ANONYMOUS!! The Pussycat Patrol has never, ever seen such a group of dopes. We can not fathom how such a thing could happen. Our sympathy goes out to the Limberios family. Our hope is that someone of authority will step in STAT and fire these dolts and put an end to their reign of terror.


Just when I think Dean Henry couldn't possibley be any worse or any more of a jerk, he proves me wrong. This is the guy who needs his head examined.


What these people are doing should be deemed CRIMINAL.....but they hold all the cards, as much as we all want our posts to make a difference, all they have to do is not read them and pretend they dont exist, whatever they have to do, to be able to sleep at night....this has been handled by what seems to be a "poe-dunk" SCSO and now just to show the family the family up for all the bad publicity, they refuse to allow their son to FINALLY be placed to rest. But, what can you do, they have the "law" on their side and we have nothing but these ineffective posts...elected officials have never really cared about what we the people think the end, i hope this family sues for MILLIONS.....

Truth or Dare

There was a sample given to SC, it's missing, right along w/the bloody clothing and shoes from the scene of Jacob's death! Now his body is being kept, w/refusal to be released? This is F.U.B.A.R!

Whether or not these posts are ineffective remains to be seen. To think they're not viewed, or anyone's comments aren't viewed by "someone" regardless of the topic is foolish, that's for sure! What I'm hoping will be more effective, are those of us willing to make phone calls to the OAG, giving full disclosure as to who you are, as well sending letters to the Ohio Supreme Court Justices as to the pleas of the Limberios family.

Gotta have Hope! Faith, Hope and Love, the 3 greatest gifts!


Completely incompetent until attempting to cover the traces of their incompetence.

Really are you ...

They are trying to figure out an explanation for the no stippling found. But how could the entrance wound be higher than the exit wound? And the bullet still went into the attic? Trajectory was, in a way, from back to front. Was Jacob talking on his cell phone or was it in his pocket? Was Jacob looking up because he was taking a drink, and lets play shoot the cup? Was it a defective round that just went off, as it laid on the ottoman? Then there may be a burn mark on the ottoman. There is no way Jacob could have been holding that pistol. I hope for the sake of closure that the truth comes out soon.


Watch the you tube video about the forensic evidence in the case. There is a link to it in the last anonymous release. It explains the trajectory, where the bullet came from, location, and back splatter onto the witnesses shoes.


The powers that be are now in control of Sandusky County, Ohio. The entire state of Ohio is now under control by the powers that be. The Sandusky Register can inform and educate the masses but a newspaper can only expose wrongdoing and cannot punish the wrongdoers. That is up to the courts of Ohio. My opinion of the courts of Ohio is that they are also under control but not by the people of Ohio.
"There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image; make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to the outer limits."

The crap going on in Ohio is under control by the powers that be just like the "Outer Limits" television show introduction took control of a BW television. I don't think that "Anonymous" can do much but maybe KnightSec could expose some public information stored on computers and servers.


I think the pathologist has to release the body back to the coroner, (Wacky, errr I mean Wukie) or directly to the funeral home. If there is a change to be made on the death certificate, it needs to be rectified by the county coroner. Therein lies the problem. Dean Henry is telling Wukie not to release Jacob. I am sure the pathologist in Lucas County wants to become involved in this mess and wants to send Jacob back but is being told not to do so. I know this isn't a monetary issue for Mike and Shannon, but when all is said and done, you guys better OWN Sandusky County--rename it Jake County.


*doesn't want to become involved

So basically anonymous said "take that rewind it back" but in a classy way! Lol

I would be worried that Jake's body comes up missing. With the way everything else has been handled, why wouldn't Sandusky County officials "lose" or misplace this evidence.
