Strenck, 47, of South Carolina, died in his cell, according to Diamantoni. His death was ruled a suicide after an external examination at the coroner’s office, Diamantoni said.
From the LNP article, “Coroner rules inmate death at Lancaster County Prison a suicide,” (click here).
** “An external examination?” Did Coroner Diamantoni do toxicology testing? Will there be a follow-up by LNP?
This alleged suicide disappeared from the news after this one article and according to LNP the Lancaster Police, Commissioner Josh Parsons and Prison Warden Cheryl Steberger declined to comment. Why? It’s their job!
Strenck was charged with a slew of horrific sexual crimes against children and all of those charges had been held over for Common Pleas Court at his preliminary hearing the day before. But the public should know how he was able to allegedly commit suicide and whether drugs were involved.
Did Diamantoni do toxicology tests? This is basic journalism, LNP!
LIFE & DEATH DECISIONS!
The Lancaster County coroner, a practicing physician, accepted thousands of dollars from pharmaceutical companies but failed to disclose the payments on financial interest filings as required by state law, an LNP investigation found.
The opening sentence to LNP’s, “County Coroner fails to disclose thousands in pharmaceutical company payments,” (click here).
* LNP wrote front page editorials calling for William Murry to resign because they alleged that he and the Manheim Township School Board broke the Sunshine Law. The board, including Murry, are unpaid and volunteer their time.
Coroner Diamantoni is a highly paid and extremely important public official and he broke the law and will hopefully be charged. Why isn’t LNP demanding that he resign?
HALF-ASSED JOURNALISM! – 2
This is from Sunday’s LNP editorial titled online, “Meeting over magisterial district court proposal shows the need for civility in our public discourse,” (click here).
Oh, there is so much to say about this horsesh*t – and I will – but on the most childish level it reminds me of when then Manheim Township School Board President William Murry used the word “half-assed” and mature LNP reporters and Suzanne Cassidy, the opinion editor, lost it (see below).
And speaking of Murry and LNP’s front page editorials demanding he resign, why isn’t LNP demanding that Coroner Stephen Diamantoni resign?
