Last updated on Monday, January 13, 2014

(JASONVILLE) - Investigators are continuing to look into the circumstances surrounding a suspicious death called a “possible homicide” that occurred early on New Year’s Day in Jasonville.

Anna Rochelle, Co-Editor of the Greene County Daily World reported on Friday morning that Greene County Prosecutor Jarrod Holtsclaw said the final results from the autopsy have not yet been received.

"This incident is still under investigation," said Holtsclaw.

"I met with Officer Ryan Van Horn of the Jasonville Police Department and Detective Brad Stille of the Indiana State Police on Wednesday to review all the information.

"We're waiting on the final results from the autopsy examination."

The deceased was identified last Friday as Joshua A. Ray, 25, of Jasonville.

On Wednesday, Jan. 1, New Year's Day, law enforcement officers from several agencies were on the scene of the possible homicide.

That afternoon, Greene County Coroner Sherri Wilson confirmed that a body had been found on Meridian Street in Jasonville sometime during the night and that Greene County Deputy Coroner Dave Drew had been called to the scene.

On Thursday, Jan. 2, Jasonville Assistant Police Chief James Gadberry also confirmed that the body of a 25-year old male was discovered at 12:55 a.m. Wednesday.

Gadberry added that the Jasonville police officers were being assisted by the Indiana State Police in the ongoing investigation.

The coroner later confirmed that the circumstances were "suspicious" but offered no other details.

An autopsy examination was conducted early last Friday morning by Forensic Pathologist Dr. Roland Kohr at Regional Hospital in Terre Haute.

Since the initial investigation on the scene, the Jasonville Police Department has requested anyone that may have any information in regards to the investigation to please contact Greene County Crime Stoppers at 812-847-5463.

Gadberry stressed that callers can remain anonymous and that a cash reward is offered for information that leads to an arrest.

Due to the ongoing investigation in this case, none of the agencies involved are releasing any additional details at this time.
