Prosecutor: Evidence supports original finding of suicide in Owsley case


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — Claims by a sister of 49-year-old Cary Owsley that his April 7 death from a bullet piercing his heart may have been murder are "horribly irresponsible," Bartholomew County Prosecutor Bill Nash said Friday.

All the evidence Nash said that he has seen points to a clear-cut suicide.

"I am not going to work on a non-case. The overwhelming, vast amount of evidence gathered in this investigation establishes this, in fact, was a suicide," said Nash, who said he promised Owsley's sister, Cheryl Jackson of Chicago, that he would review the case after the sheriff's department and advisers from the Indiana State Police had finished their work.
