On 6 Sep 10 Sgt. Underwood and Deputy Sheriffs Anderson and Simmons responded to the scene of death of a thirty-three year old Beverly resident. The victim appears to have taken his own life after battling depression as a result of separating from his wife. No foul play is suspected.

On 6 Sep 10 Deputy Sheriff Anderson requested summonses for Sam Wilcoxen, age 32, and Kelly Curran, age 38, both of 8261 Muskingum River Road, Lowell, for disorderly conduct by fighting. During an argument over the status of their relationship Ms. Curran struck Mr. Wilcoxen in the face and Mr. Wilcoxen retaliated by slapping Ms. Curran in the back of the head. Both parties provided conflicting statements about the incident but neither reported being in fear for their safety.

On 6 Sep 10 Deputy Sheriff Anderson requested a summons for a seventeen year old Fleming resident to appear in Juvenile Court for being unruly. The juvenile’s mother stated her son was upset over the fact that their grill was broken and threw a pack of hamburger patties on the floor. An argument subsequently ensued and the juvenile grabbed his mother by the throat and kicked her in the legs. As punishment the teenager’s mother attempted to remove her son’s Playstation from his room but her son carried her from his room to the kitchen.

On 6 Sep 10 Deputy Sheriff Rhodes investigated a report of a fifteen year old who was allegedly assaulted by her mother, Kathy J. Gaskins, age 37, 1936 Mill Branch Road, Belpre. The teenager stated she was traveling in a vehicle with her mother on State Route 7 when her mother began accusing her of having a boy over to a residence where she was babysitting. Ms. Gaskins proceeded to repeatedly slap and strike her daughter in the face as many as forty or fifty times, bloodying her nose and cutting her lip. Additionally, the teenager said her mother had an odor of alcohol and that their vehicle swerved as they traveled toward Belpre. Questioned about the incident, Ms. Gaskins admitted striking her daughter numerous times and commented that the number of times she smacked her daughter was excessive. Consequently, Deputy Rhodes requested a warrant for Ms. Gaskins for child endangering. Ms. Gaskins subsequently turned herself in at the Washington County Jail.

The following individuals were processed into the Washington County Jail:

Billy Allen Babcock, age 34, 100 Spring Street, Marietta, for OVI, possession of drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, for driving under an FRA suspended license, for not wearing a seat belt, for operating a vehicle with fictitious plates and for failing to dim his headlights, all misdemeanors. Babcock was arrested on Pike Street by the Ohio State Highway Patrol and processed into the Washington County Jail on 6 Sep 10 at 2:14 am.

Patricia Ann Bonar, age 33, 4845 Veto Road, Vincent, for failure to appear, a misdemeanor. Bonar was arrested on Sealy Ridge Road by Deputy Sheriff Rhodes and processed into the Washington County Jail on 6 Sep 10 at 3:01 pm.
