Ohio St. suspicious death investigation

The St. Joseph Police Department said a case has been submitted to the prosecutor’s office for consideration after a man was shot and killed last week.

As we previously reported, Jeffrey Allen Mason, 50 of St. Joseph was found shot at a home located at 413 Ohio Street.  After officers arrived Mason was later pronounced deceased.  According to his obituary, Mason worked at WRDCC Western Reception Diagnostic Correction Center as a Corrections Officer and was a graduate of Benton High School.

Police said Mason’s death is being investigated as suspicious. Wilson on Monday told us, the case has been submitted to the prosecutor’s office for consideration.  Because of that, Wilson said updates will have to come directly through the Buchanan County Prosecutor’s Office.

Prosecuting Attorney Dwight Scroggins said authorities are still investigating and won’t be done for at least awhile.
