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.

can you tell me this all of you that think that is over - and family has done all this for nothing .... why was the bullet left in the ceiling ? as indicated from the 'evidence before' and EVIDENCE LEFT BEHIND a bullet entered the ceiling as it exited jakes poor head - so please describe to me if IF and HOW it is possiable for what the lucas county coroner is saying " the bullet actually came through where it was said to exit - and exited where it was earlier determined to enter " wouldnt that put the bullet in the floor ? i mean im no college grad or licensed medical examiner but just random thought.

Dean Henry:
If you are reading this, I used to think you were mean. But I have changed my mind now; After Cynthia's report, I just feel horrible for you because you chose to represent these people.
Just know you're in my thoughts & prayers.

Sincerely,

Kayleigh!
(p.s I know you read these blogs thats why I'm posting this!)

Haha apparently not. I've been registered as a commenter here since way before any of these stories ever started. My name is Andrew (the Register has my full name and I assure you it IS Andrew) & has been since the day I was born. Who is Sean Oconnell? You need to get over this whole conspiracy thing because you are utterly ridiculous. Really how old ARE you? I said that there have been plenty of people, myself included, that have read all of the information and see nothing other than what has been concluded which is that he accidentally shot himself. Hence the WE.

she is an adult. she is a mother. she is the mother of Ella, the daughter of JAKE - THE ONE YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS MADE A HUGE MISTAKE ON BY BEING LAZY AND DETERMINING HIS DEATH WAS A ACCIDENTAL SUICIDE HOW EVER THAT WORKS.. AND SHE IS ALSO ONE OF THE ONES WHO HOPEFULLY SOONER THAN LATER, WILL HAVE YOUR JOBS.

starryeyes83

MAYBE IF SHE WAS A WIDOW, THAT'S A DIFFERENT LEGAL ASPECT. HAVING A KID TOGETHER DOESN'T ALWAYS PROTECT THE OTHER PARENT.

TRISTINPRUITT

one more thing, yes you and " plenty of people " as in your local law enforcement workers READ all the information instead of investigating it -- therefore you have no idea what you are talking about. try reading a little more as in ems reports -- um the definition of suicide and accident.. theres a few for ya. oh and please read the definition for TERMINATION as i hope soon that will be a word you all will have to hear

so.....

You say accidently shot himself. Far cry from suicide.... which is what they claim

Simple Enough II

Someone puts a gun to their head pulls the trigger, do you know what they were thinking?

so.....

Noone does. They just needed to dot the I's and cross the t's. Dont assume just from what appears to be in front of you.

Deputy Coroner states " the direction of fire is right to left." "By measurement the track is right to left, downward, and backward."

I've been commenting on the Register for several years. I don't know why you people are so paranoid. What is it I'm supposedly getting away with? Commenting on a news story that has run it's course?

mhs parent

Wow....... I cannot understand how all of a sudden the gun shoot wound went from right to left???? I will not go into detail but anyone who attended Jacob's funeral would know that is not true. I don't think you need to be an expert on gun shot wounds to know that the entry wound is small and the exit wound is not. People have accused Mike and Shannon for buying the results they wanted, all I can say is Wow how can those same people say there ya go case closed. Maybe because they are bloggers who are either one of the witnesses or a Sandusky County official or married to or related to one. The funeral home report states the gun shot wound went from left to right. Of all things to fabricate that one takes the cake, if this doesn't get Mike DeWine's attention now I don't know what will. This is completely unbelievable. Why it surprises me I do not know, by this point it should not surprise me at all how low the powers that be in this case will stoop.

mamaC

totally agree with you Mhsparent.

The statement in which she says the evidence is not inconsistent with a suicide is a letter to Dr. Wukie. All she is saying is that the evidence didnt disprove the suicide ruling. As it is written is being taken out of context because she does not say that it was a suicide. She says the range could not be determined so there is no way forensically for her to tell. In fact, she hasn't even made a ruling on whether it was a suicide or not. It says it is pending based on Wukies decision.

The Register lost its objectivity a long time ago on this case. Westerhold thinks he is Bob Woodward and wants desperately to uncover a big conspiracy, it's not here. Please do us all a favor, update your 4 hour public records training, stick to the facts and take a dose of reality. I would suggest digging back up the barge fiasco, Kelly's Island incident, or some other anti-police "cover up" Please save us from ourselves Matt, you are the only one with the courage, and character to do it. (Sarcasm noted)

Hoss McGee

Why do you read and comment on things that you apparently don't care about? Maybe you could call yourself a tool!

dontcare

Great response

asitwasstated

(y)
Just wait for the full police reports on the other articles! Oh yah that's right,,,even though they are released, we won't see them here!

@”dontcare”

Actually your name and attitude sums up the entire problem with not just this case but many others, People “dontcare” unless it affects them. Well let me tell you, you should. It takes courage and character to do the right thing. You along with many others should absolutely be outraged with the way this investigation has been handled from the beginning and the way the family has been treated. Mike and Sharon we think of you and your struggle daily. Matt, Dan, and Emil please don’t give up, there are more people than you know counting on you.

Remember “Someone needs to care”.

Im really confused if he was right handed how would the wound be downward entering the left side...even if he was able to shoot with both hands I dont understand how it could be away from the head in a downward angle..then id like to know what the deal is with a bullet in the ceiling..was it from that night or some other time...and why wouldnt the coroner bother to show up but make a ruling regardless..I always thought that was a coroner s job to go and examine the body and scene of the death even if it does seem obvious..its not impossible for someone to kill someone and put a gun in their hand HOPING it will be ruled a suicide..not saying murder but screwing around as teenagers can do and trying to cover up a terrible accident? With the authorities looking over evidence and kinda brushing it off plus the coroner being absent...its not entirely out of the qustion and lets be honest has the county always been correct and never made an error ever in time? I ask these questions because I was not at the scene and will not pretend to know what happened or be mean to others that are speaking purely from opinion. ..its very sad no matter what happened a little girl will never know her father and a family is in grief people who loved him have to live without him...its just to bad that people cant have a little com passion if this happened to your family wouldnt. You want all the facts to?

jakeesspoo

Dig him up again and let someone else look at him again. Keep doing this until someone agrees with you This will certainly give you closure and help your grieving process

so.....

Go read the new article, if all you nay sayers who are sick of the harping can bear to read it. DEAN HENRY FIRED... due to conflicts of interest. ..
