An investigation over the death of Yellow Springs resident Paul E. Schenck is over. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine gave the report Tuesday morning. The report sheds light on the six hour standoff with police this summer that ended in Schenck's death, but leaves some questions unanswered.
The Bureau of Criminal Investigation collected evidence over a three month period. BCI concluded that the 42-year-old Schenck was killed by a Greene County Sheriff's Deputy during the standoff and not by his own hand.
The Office of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) has released a preliminary report regarding a July 30 standoff at a Yellow Springs residence that lasted nearly six hours.
