LIMA — A criminal investigation surrounding the recent death of an Elida man is still underway, officials said Monday, with no suspect as yet publicly identified.
Detectives from the Allen County Sheriff’s Office are awaiting final toxicology reports from the office of the Lucas County Coroner which could yield evidence into the circumstances behind the death of Jaden Oglesbee, Capt. Andre McConnahea said Monday morning. It could be up to 60 days before that toxicology report is complete, he said.
Oglesbee’s body was discovered Dec. 26 by deputies inside a residence at 5720 Clover Ridge Drive in Elida, where the 47-year-old man lived with his parents. His death was ruled a homicide, and Oglesbee’s body was sent to the Lucas County Coroner’s Office for an autopsy. The coroner ruled the death a homicide. According to an earlier statement from the sheriff’s office, the incident was “suspicious in nature” and appeared to be caused in part by “force applied to (Oglesbee’s) neck by another individual.”
According to the statement, several family and household members told deputies that Oglesbee, a 1991 graduate of Elida High School, had been in a physical altercation with another individual inside the home.
McConnahea on Monday said that once detectives have completed their investigation the case will be turned over to the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office for possible criminal charges.
