Ohioan’s body again exhumed in death investigation

CASTALIA, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in northern Ohio have again exhumed the body of a 19-year-old man who died from a gunshot wound over a year ago.

The exhumation just outside Sandusky is part of an investigation into how Jacob Limberios (lihm-BEER’-ee-ohs) died. A county coroner ruled the death a suicide last year but also said the teen might not have known the gun was loaded.

The Sandusky Register reports that his parents and about 40 others gathered at the cemetery Wednesday to protest the exhumation. The parents say exhuming the body a second time wasn’t necessary.

They previously hired their own forensic pathologist to do an autopsy, and that person concluded the death was a homicide after the teen’s body was exhumed last fall.

A special prosecutor is looking into his death.
