Beegle said Monday afternoon no arrests have been made and the investigation into Joshua Starcher’s death continues. A body identified as Starcher’s was found on Vinegar Street on Friday afternoon, Beegle said.
A passerby traveling to a nearby farm contacted the sheriff’s department about his discovery. Beegle confirmed Starcher had been shot once. His body was found in the driver’s seat of his vehicle.
As he always does in death investigations, Beegle has asked the BCI to head up the investigation into Starcher’s death, because his office is not adequately staffed or equipped to do so.
Beegle said BCI agents are in the county investigating leads in the case, and possible suspects have been interviewed. Beegle and deputies were assisting BCI in their work yesterday, he said.
Starcher, 32, lived on Pomeroy Pike, according to Beegle.
Beegle has issued an appeal to anyone with information about Starcher’s death contact his office or the Ohio BCI at 992-3371.
An autopsy has been arranged at the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office, Beegle said, and additional information
