The man who killed an Ohio police officer in cold blood on Saturday night was previously revived with Narcan in 2015.
31-year-old Girard Police Officer Justin Leo was killed late Saturday night after being shot by Jason Marble during a routine investigation of a domestic dispute. During the exchange of gunfire, Marble was killed by one of Leo’s fellow officers.
Recent reports from Liberty Police Chief Richard Tisone confirm that Marble was revived with Narcan and CPR after an overdose in 2015, when Liberty PD found him slumped over a wheel in the middle of an intersection.
According to WKBN, Marble was charged with DUI and felony drug possession at the time.
While Leo’s body was submitted for an autopsy Monday morning and delivered in a timely matter for his funeral, no results have been released concerning Marble’s autopsy- if it has even been performed yet.
“These are obviously very difficult cases and very sensitive cases for obvious reasons,” said Thomas Stickrath, superintendent of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation.
In the meantime, the superintendent claims the investigation will take time.
“We have the interviews and we have our own laboratory work that we’ll do,” Stickrath said. “I won’t go into detail on what we’re examining in the laboratory in terms of evidence but clearly, that takes some period of time.”
Police officers escorted Leo’s remains home on Monday.
