This is the biggest crime to happen in Bucyrus in 20 years.
For many, it was hard to come to terms with what was happening.
“There’s like four suspicious deaths” said Valerie Smith-Malone. “Here lately and one’s my uncle and I don’t know my dad’s probably a mess right now.”
Men in their 50’s and 60’s found beaten To death in their houses and apartments.
Bill jack Chatman was beaten severely. “I mean his face was completely gone” said his brother Tom Alberty who found him. “I mean his brains was hanging out I mean they beat him brutally brutally.”
News of the beating went from one end of town to the other, from one family to the next.
“He was harmless” said Sarah Lewis, the daughter of Darrell Lewis who was also found murdered. “He was Grouchy, But he was harmless he’d give his shirt off his back to anybody it’s just devastating that this could happen to him.”
A Bucyrus man surrendered to police earlier today. But police would not speculate as to what this was all about.
He has not been charged as of Tuesday night and as of Tuesday he was the only one being questioned.
Families of victims believe it was an act of revenge. That the man in custody was beaten earlier in the week and went after who he thought may have done it.
“It goes without saying the community is in shock” said Bucyrus Police Chief David Koepke it’s been a devastating weekend and a devastating Tuesday with four diseased individuals in Bucyrus homicide investigations.”
