CHICAGO (CBS) — Cheryl Jackson got the call that her brother Cary Owsley had killed himself on April 7th.
“It was like a bad dream. I was on a date with a former police detective who was really the key to this case. The more he learned about the case and heard the details of the scene, the more I questioned what really happened, so I immediately drove to my hometown of Columbus, Indiana and started asking questions,” she said.
When Jackson arrived, she said her brother’s home was not even taped off and family members were going in and out of the house while her brother’s body was still inside.
“My brother, his wife is formerly married to a Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Deputy. This deputy becomes important because he actually worked the crime scene. When he gets on the scene, he recognizes the gun that my brother is killed with is his gun. He says in the police statement that it is his gun. He then proceeds while he is off duty to touch the gun, help move the body, to touch every piece of evidence in the crime scene. I believe this was an obstruction of justice.”
