New results same as old ones: Accidental suicide

Autopsy report released to newspaper
Register
May 23, 2013

The second autopsy confirms the initial conclusion by Sandusky County sheriff's deputies: Jacob Limberios killed himself but it might have been accidental. 

Deputies reached that conclusion within just hours from when Jacob Limberios was killed on March 2, 2012, by a gunshot to the head.

Sandusky County coroner John Wukie used that finding in his death ruling despite never having examined the body, visiting the home where Jacob was killed or reviewing information with witnesses.

The Fremont News-Messenger reported Wednesday that the autopsy conducted by deputy Lucas County coroner Cynthia Beisser found deputies were correct in that original conclusion immediately after Jacob was killed (Click for article), but they were wrong about which hand Jake was using to shoot the gun.  

Evidence was destroyed during the initial investigation, according to the Limberios family, and deputies failed to follow basic procedures or meet professional standards of criminal investigation. 

Beisser performed her autopsy May 2, six months after Pittsburgh pathologist Cyril Wecht conducted an autopsy on behalf of the family after the county previously refused to order one. Wecht's autopsy found Jacob to have been the victim of a homicide.

The Register will post Beisser's autopsy report at the news website when officials respond to the request.

Thank you for that, Kayleigh. Excellent post.

This ain't over...

Dr. Wecht is also considered by many in the scientific community to be a nut and a conspiracy theorist.

so.....

I find it hard to believe that ohio state would suggest a nut to a family for something so serious. That label usually comes from people who have been one -upped by that person.

Brassman is considered by many in the blogging community to be a nut and a troll. You know what they say about opinions?

Well said, Kayleigh! people keep saying 'the family PAID' for their report... if you're going to follow THAT reasoning... SO DID THE COUNTY! Justice for Jacob!

Simple Enough II

Were not Jacob and the others firing the handgun earlier that evening? If they were as was reported, they all would have more than likely had GSR on both hands as most folks tend to hold a handgun with both hands. Wasn't it mentioned they were drinking and such going on that evening? How many rounds were in that revolver, one, several, what?

Simple Enough II

So why would the SO and all the rest call it this instead of a accidental homicide? Who are the 3 individuals and who would they be connected with to have this happen?

so.....

Theyre calling it suicide because the 3 kids with him said he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, with his left, non dominate hand,while he was talking on his cell, with his right hand,that he shoots with. But they don't think he meant to do it tho...thus accidental. But the county threw out bloody clothes and shoes they allowed the kids to remove. The coroner or a detective, per protocol, did not come to the scene and conduct an autopsy or an investigation. They just went by what the road officers said which was what the kids said.
This isn't about covering FOR the kids its about covering officials who dropped the ball and didnt do their jobs until the family sued them.

Simple Enough II

But the Sheriff was there also and he was a detective.

so.....

That point I cant argue as I don't know. But I can say he left the scene before the "investigation" was done because he thought the scene was under control.

so.....

As for the 3kids..one is jakes girlfriends sister, her boyfriend and another boy. The cover up isn't about the kids or who they are or know. Its about the officials in charge not doing their jobs. Plus how exactly do you have accidental suicude???? Its either accidental or suicide. Cant be both. And that's what the family has a problem with.

WELL SAID COUSIN :) -- then we can see how her family likes it..

brassman

It's so sad that he killed himself and even sadder that the family refuses to accept the truth.

Julie R.

Like.

("Like" was in reference to Chris vanscoy's comment about Kelly that was just deleted .... and certainly not the above comment made by 'brassman')

brassman

Really? You "like" that? You like that someone would suggest violence? Aren't you just a peach.

Julie R.

I didn't see anything in that comment that suggested violence. You must be delusional, sweetie.

brassman

No, honey, but you just said you liked a comment that was calling for violence. Maybe you are the one having delusions or is it that your memory is failing?

brassman

You are disgusting. Sorry you can't accept that the young man killed himself but the facts prove that he did. Those would be the actual facts and not the ones paid for by his family. It was obvious to so many since day one that this was just because they couldn't accept that he did it and was nothing but a witch hunt. We have been proven correct and hopefully we can stop hearing about it now.

mamaC

Brassman have the guts to state your name are one of the witnesses? "We have been proven correct and hopefully we can stop hearing about it now." Your not gonna stop hearing about this! It will haunt you in your sleep and the rest of your life if you DO Not come Forward with the TRUTH! STOP hiding Behind Sandusky County and THEIR COVER-UP!

sandtown born a...

The truth shall set you free or get you locked up in this case

brassman

Why would it haunt me? It's just a news story.

TRISTINPRUITT

"WE have been proven correct, hopefully WE can stop hearing about it now"

is that implying WE as in your with the people involved in sandusky county that didnt do their jobs ?

mamaC

Please everyone calm down. Jake DID NOT kill himself. Please refer to Justice for Jake Facebook page and see the autopsy report along with the evidences showing what Sandusky County EMS states & Capt. Meggitt report. Notice Lucas county says Right to Left and the others say Left to right! This is what is called a "Bought & Paid" for report LOOKS LIKE!!She did NOT have all the info. Or is O'Connell going to somehow change all the paperwork to reflect his findings? And then to top if off have Julie Saul look at this who has worked hand and hand with Lucas County before! To reconstruct skull fragments to demonstrate their reports.. How can that be done? when her report is so messed up with entry of gun shot to the others? Is everyone drinking the Kool Aid in this case to fight this family?

brassman

Bought & paid for was Wecht's report

Krissy3

And you don't think beisser is being paid for hers?

brassman

He may not have meant to kill himself but he did

mamaC

Ok Tough guy.. Why don't you submit a report on this statement? When Lucas county can't even get an entry wound right? That is "Bought & Paid for" get YOUR facts right before you go spewing your stuff!If it were your child you want scientific proof at this point and Sandusky County has FAiled..

brassman

What do you mean by "tough guy"? They wanted an official autopsy & now they have it. They paid to get the result they wanted and it was inaccurate. It's just like in trials, even with overwhelming evidence, the defense will always be able to find "experts" who will back them up. A coroner working for another county has no reason to do anything but give a report based on the scientific evidence and that's what she did. Jake has his justice...a true and factual autopsy. It just isn't what the family wants to hear. It's sad but it is what it is. He shot himself.
