Brown County jail hanging ruled a homicide
Brown County, Ohio (WKRC) -- The Brown County Coroner says the death of an inmate in the county jail is a homicide. However, there could be another side to the story.
Zacary Ryan Goldson was found hanging in his cell at the Brown County Jail, early Saturday October 5. He was in jail on multiple charges. Sheriff's officials say he gave no indication that he was a suicide risk.
The coroner, Dr. Judith Varnau says the cause of death was strangulation and there's no way Goldson could have tied the knot that killed him. Sheriff's officials say they believe the coroner's decision is politically motivated and they're waiting on results from a criminal investigation being conducted by the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
