On 6 Nov 13 Pamela Gereshenski, age 45, 817 Masonic Park Road Lot 4, Marietta, reported she was assaulted by her estranged husband. Asked to further elaborate, Ms. Gereshenski provided contradictory statements and often could not be understood due to her inebriety. Unable to determine that a crime occurred, Deputy Sheriff McPeek closed this case as unfounded.

On 6 Nov 13 the Devola Fire Department transported an eighty-two year old Lower Salem resident to Marietta Memorial Hospital for treatment following a suicide attempt. The victim’s wife said her husband is dying of cancer and ingested a handful of one of his prescription medications. Emergency room personnel said the victim should recover from the suicide attempt and was being treated to extract the medication from his system (113).

On 6 Nov 13 Donald K. Marcum, age 43, 27335 State Route 7 Lot 8, Marietta, reported he believes his son entered his residence while he was asleep and stole his mobile phone and $15. Mr. Marcum declined to pursue charges in the matter (1007).

On 6 Nov 13 Deputy Sheriff Metts and the Dunham and Little Hocking fire departments responded to a fire at the residence of Debra K. Elder, age 58, at 2196 Burnfield Road, Vincent. Ms. Elder was outside her home for a short period of time and when she entered her kitchen she heard her smoke detector. In her kitchen, Ms. Elder observed a fire in the bar area and escaped outside with all of her pets. The fire was confined to the kitchen and caused approximately $20,000 in fire and water damage. The fire’s origin is believed to be accidental in nature. No foul play is suspected.

On 6 Nov 13 Deputy Sheriff Metts requested a summons for a twelve year old Vincent resident to appear in Juvenile Court on charges of delinquency by assault and menacing. Several days earlier the juvenile punched another student on their school bus and left him with a swollen lip. Later, the juvenile showed a classmate a drawing of people with knives sticking out of them and commented to the student if he did not stop bothering him he would make the drawing come true. The juvenile also received a suspension from the school.

On 6 Nov 13 Shawna Mincks, age 27, 964 Hocking Road, Little Hocking, reported a shotgun slug fired from outside her home penetrated a wall, passed through an interior wall and came to rest on the floor of a bedroom. A group of nearby hunters claimed responsibility for the shot and provided a matching shotgun shell from a twelve gauge shotgun. This case remains under investigation (129).
