Woman sought in suspicious death under arrest



Staff Writer

Ashlie A. Velasquez, a “person of interest” in a suspicious July 4 death, is being held in the Hancock County jail for tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony charge.

Hancock County Sheriff Mike Heldman declined to say what evidence Velasquez, 29, allegedly tampered with.

The sheriff’s office had been trying to locate her since Boe N. Bushong, 22, of rural Mount Blanchard, died July 4 at his residence on Amanda Township 194.

The two were in a relationship, according to their Facebook pages.

Asked if additional charges against Velasquez might be possible, Heldman said, “I would say that is a possibility, depending how the investigation goes.”

Velasquez was arrested Friday after the sheriff’s office got a warrant to check a Findlay apartment that investigators believed her to be in, Heldman said.

That location — the Redwood apartments on Soldier Drive and

Palmdale 4-Year-Old Who Died Under Suspicious Circumstances Could Have Been Removed From Parents’ Custody

A boy who died Saturday under suspicious circumstances in Palmdale could have been removed from the custody of his parents in May, the NBCLA I-Team has learned. 

Two sources familiar with the case of 4-year-old Noah Cuatro say a judge granted a removal request from an LA County Department of Children and Family Social worker, but it was not immediately clear why the order was never carried out. The NBCLA I-Team is looking into why the order was not enforced.

Noah was pronounced dead on July 6 after his parents, Jose and Ursula, called 911 to report that he had drowned in the community pool at the apartment complex where the family lived on East Avenue S in Palmdale. An autopsy is pending, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff.

The child was taken first to Palmdale Regional Medical Center and then to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Nursing home death of WWII veteran in 2015 back under investigation

ANN ARBOR, MI — For years, Charles Jarnot has insisted his 89-year-old World War II veteran father didn’t need to die the way he did — choking on his dinner.

Jarnot, 61, of Milford, Kansas has persistently accused Ann Arbor’s Glacier Hills nursing home, where Walter Jarnot lived, of negligence and failure to report his father’s Sept. 4, 2015 death to the Washtenaw County Medical Examiner’s Office, as required by law.

Four years later, Ann Arbor police have reopened the death investigation and the case is currently under review for possible criminal charges at the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office, Ann Arbor Police Lt. Aimee Metzer says.

Neither Metzer nor Washtenaw County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Steven Hiller have said what led them to revisit the investigation, but it appears to be at least in part due to Charles Jarnot’s persistence.
