Arlington, Ohio, dad an apparent suicide


FINDLAY — An Arlington, Ohio, man whose son committed suicide in a farm field in November apparently shot himself to death at the same location.

Jeffrey Drummelsmith, 51, was found Friday afternoon in a field along Hancock County Road 172 south of Findlay, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the head, said Hancock County Sheriff Mike Heldman.

On Nov. 7, Mr. Drummelsmith's 21-year-old son, Justin, killed himself at the same location.

Hancock County Coroner Dr. Mark Fox said an autopsy was to be performed Tuesday by the Lucas County Coroner's Office in Toledo.
