What's going on with the Jacob Limberios case?

I've been somewhat keeping up with the events involving the Limberios family, but what are the newest details in this saga? Brenda in Sandusky.

The most recent events unfolding in the Jacob Limberios case occurred Tuesday when a visiting judge overseeing the case fired special criminal prosecutor Dean Henry.

Henry's a Tiffin-based attorney previously assigned as the special prosecutor in a criminal investigation revolving around the killing of Jacob Limberios in March 2012.

Henry's exit comes just days after Sandusky County Common Pleas Court Judge John Dewey removed himself from the case. Dewey's the second judge to step aside in this case, joining Sandusky County Common Pleas Court Barbara Ansted.

All three have refused to respond to numerous inquiries about the conflicts of their involvement.

Sandusky County coroner John Wukie originally ruled Limberios' death as a suicide — even though he never visited the scene of the York Township crime — after a bullet penetrated through his skull. Three witnesses at the scene said Jacob accidentally shot himself in the head with his own .357 Magnum.

The explanation didn't make sense to Jacob's family members, who pushed Sandusky County officials to reopen the investigation to figure out what actually happened. 

Jacob's parents then exhumed his body in September for an independent autopsy — which concluded Jacob didn't kill himself —  and filed a civil lawsuit against Wukie to change his ruling in the death. 

In early May, Sandusky County officials ordered another autopsy — two in total on Jacob's body — performed by the Lucas County coroner's office, who upheld Wukie's original suicide ruling.

Quite frankly, the family and friends lost all merit when they started to send threats to certain officials. And the SR seemed to condone those actions. The judge should have put a gag order in place including anyone of the family/ friends on social media including these public comments sections.

Less is more - as they say.

Yeah,, real class.

This is my purpose for asking for ALLL police action and reports relating to this case! There is an opportunity for felony charges..for some and if they aren't followed through with...well then I guess we will have to bring it up again!

TRUE Justice for Jake supporters do Not need to "Hack" anything. Forensic Proof by professionals have showed Jake did NOT kill himself. But, let's not forget here a Lil 4 yr girl will one day see all this.Shame on anyone who are friends or family posting negative things on here about the Limberios family. Anonymous did NOT threaten anyone. They did NOT hack anyone. If you people read the paper or the blogs they clearly have made statements stating they have NOT done anything but bring awareness to this cause.They are not that "careless" to be caught or would ever threaten a newspaper. Anyone who is either friends or family of Kayleigh or Ella should not Be on here acting like this!Have any of you thought or have put yourself in their shoes? There are both sides of the story and both sides need to step aside and remember that Ella should be thought of first! This case is NOT about who wins or who loses. That has already been determined. But,I am curious to why all the negative and threatening with everything now since Dean Henry has been removed by the judge and the Ohio AG office stepping in? Are people scared? The truth is not scary. And it wouldn't take 15 months to get answers either if there was solid evidence that Jake committed suicide.But, my most important point here is if SC would of done their JOBS on 3/2/2012 and done an autopsy on a 19yr with a gun shot to the head with drinking going on. This would of never went to the places it has. This fight and drawn out case is not the result on "anyone's" doings but by the "lazy" officials on that night in question.

As far as SR covering this story. Everyone needs to look at the bigger picture here. The paper is reporting on the failed system over there and bringing awareness to the public. If this happened to one family how many more are over there that this has happened to? Our systems are failing us and are broken just not in SC but across this country. If it is not reported on everyone would be naive to it.And now days when most everyone is about me,Me,me you better take notice to this because one day it might be you in this same situation. Then what? This case is much bigger then Jake Limberios. People just need to open their eyes and see it. Voices are in numbers and if we don't change this one day this country will become a dictatorship.

If you don't want a dictatorship, possibly start with the SANDUSKY REGISTER! Have they represented EVERYTING? Gloriously put a LOT of police reports in the paper...but where is the follow up on the people that were found to be charged? The NAMES?? You know if you want people to sign your petition and you want people to believe in your goal...well then maybe ALL the truth should be REVEALED!! TWENTY wrongs don't make ONE right!! Quit using a four year old to be your monacher!! SHE IS TRULY SAFE AND INNOCENT! Don't write her future for her!! I can guarantee that this will not come out GOOD for her if you try to CHANGE her future for your own needs. She has a mother that will tell her EVERYDAY how WONDERFUL her daddy is..cuz he still IS! And you fight your fight with SC on your own viability..not HERS!!

1st point is SR has never dictated to anyone to read this story or its paper.That is yours and everyone else choice what to read or not! gee-sh.Has SR reported on every item on this story? Nope I think it would take up way too much print and ink to report on every person involved directly or indirectly with this case.You complain enough already how much this case is covered in their paper.But, here is a fact. YOU nor I control the paper and what they put in it. SO GET OVER IT!Our petition does not need anymore signatures as Mike DeWine office was ordered to step in.For someone who knows what SR publishes you clearly missed that printed paper!
Second, Nobody has even been charged or arrested in anything.
Third, as far as "truth" being revealed maybe if the TRUTH was revealed on 3/2/12 NONE of this would be taking place! So be careful using the "truth" because NOBODY has been truthful in that.Your correct in saying twenty wrongs don't make one right. But, the twenty before have been utterly life changing and a life lost.So,you now want one corrected after the twenty before? Be careful what you wish for.Does everyone in the situation want to be truthful now? skeletons in closet
fourth, Nobody has ever exploited a 4 yr. How dare you make that claim? shame on you for even thinking that.Her mom has been very involved with Justice for Jake. She deserves answers and Honest ones at that. You don't think her life hasn't been changed forever since that night? Someone choose her future for her then. That in itself is not fair! She is just as innocent as the 4yr.! But, someone else wrote her future along with her daughters that night! I nor have I ever seen anyone trying to write anyone's future in this. The FACTS are the FACTS and they DON"T LIE! Jake DID NOT KILL HIMSELF!
Fifth, on a positive note I totally agree with you that Jake was a wonderful daddy!He was also a wonderful friend,boyfriend,son,grandson,brother,uncle and human being.

sixth,Sandusky County fight was validated on Tuesday when Judge Crawford removed Dean and appointed Mike DeWine office to investigate it. Once again facts are facts that won.Nobody could lie or hide behind anyone in that.But, if I were anyone that was there on 3/2/12 or know about anything I would be pretty scared that the big dogs are involved now. Hence the panic button pushing going on.. Justice for Jake <3

If we're going to say Sandusky County is corrupt, why is it "libel and defamation" to say the same thing about Eeerie County? Double-standard here or what?

Wouldn't bet the farm on that Jules.
