Owsley case on ‘Crime Watch Daily’ Friday

COLUMBUS, Indiana — A nationally syndicated television show, “Crime Watch Daily,” will broadcast a segment Friday on the death of Columbus area resident Cary Owsley nearly five years ago.

The hour-long show, which airs at 3 p.m. on WXIN-TV 59 in Indianapolis, is anchored by Chris Hanson.

Cary Owsley, 49, was found by his wife Lisa on April 7, 2013 with a gunshot wound to the chest in his Zephyr Village home outside of Columbus. An investigation by the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department and then-Coroner Larry Fisher concluded the death was a suicide, prompting Prosecutor Bill Nash to close the case in July of that year.

Other family members don’t agree with that assessment, however, and have told their story to “Crime Watch Daily.”
