Ohio County To Review Writing In Teen’s 2006 Hanging
Almost seven years after a black teenager died in a hanging at an Ohio church camp, Logan County authorities have granted a family lawyer’s request to review a coroner’s ruling of suicide.
Logan County Prosecutor William T. Goslee said Tuesday in an email that he plans to submit writing samples to a state crime lab from the teen, James McCoy III, and a witness who recently invoked the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination in an ongoing wrongful death suit.
Goslee said he doesn’t see the witness’s decision to invoke the Fifth Amendment as evidence McCoy fell victim to an asphyxiation prank resembling a lynching, as the teen’s mother has alleged.
Her lawyer Cliff Arnebeck asked the U.S. Justice Department to review the case Monday, based on the county’s reconsideration.
