Zanesfield Man Found Dead In His Home

Bellefontaine Examiner

Logan County Sheriff's deputies have identified the man found dead in his home on Thanksgiving. 45-year-old Jeffrey Brentlinger's adult daughter called 911 on Thursday to say she had returned home to find her father dead in the Zanesfield house he shared with the woman and her daughter. Brentlinger's daughter told them she left the house Wednesday and found her father upon returning Thursday morning. She said the front door was open and there was mud on the floor. Authorities say there were no signs of forced entry. Investigators say they believe the shooting occurred sometime between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning. The coroner preliminarily ruled the death a homicide.
