On 13 Nov 07 Greg Fleming, age 23, 13901 State Route 555, Cutler, reported he locked his 2007 Suzuki four wheeler in his storage shed at 5 pm the previous evening and when he looked in the building at 5 pm the next evening the ATV was missing. This incident remains under investigation (586).

On 13 Nov 07 Deputy Sheriff Travaglio issued a citation to Mark J. Erb, age 43, 4891 County Nine Road, Reno, for not wearing a seat belt. Deputy Travaglio stopped Mr. Erb on Sandhill Road at Summit Drive in Marietta Township.


Detectives with the Sheriff’s Office completed their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the May 22, 2007 death of Thomas Noble, age 50, who was found deceased in the hallway outside apartment #4 of Sierra Apartments at 836 Pike Street, Marietta. From evidence gathered at the scene and from other avenues of investigation, Detectives determined Mr. Noble died in the apartment of Kathy Edwards, age 48, of cardiovascular disease and pulmonary edema complicated by multiple drug intoxication. Witnesses stated Noble and Edwards, along with Dallas Farnsworth, age 34, and Aaron Farnsworth, age 22, both of 122 Harmar Street, Marietta, were drinking in Edwards’ apartment and Edwards reportedly gave Noble four or five of her prescription pills.

Though the suspects initially denied knowing Mr. Noble, the Farnsworths later admitted being in the apartment with him and seeing him deceased on the apartment floor. Detectives were able to surmise through further questioning that Edwards awoke in the morning, saw that Noble was deceased and asked the Farnsworths to move the decedent out of her apartment.

This month the Prosecutor’s Office presented evidence submitted by Detective Schuck to the grand jury. Today the grand jury returned indictments on the three suspects on a third degree felony charge of tampering with evidence, a fifth degree felony of abuse of a corpse and a fourth degree misdemeanor of disturbing a body.

The suspects in this case are all currently incarcerated in the Washington County Jail on charges unrelated to this death investigation.
