GREENVILLE, PA. Name of man found dead comes up in drug probe
Charles Palm was a subject in a drug investigation in Greenville.
GREENVILLE, Pa. -- Police said a man found dead in Trumbull County on Oct. 10 would have been arrested on drug charges Tuesday.
Police Chief Thomas Strahler said the girlfriend and some acquaintances of Charles Palm, 26, of Greenville, were arrested Tuesday on warrants secured by agents of Task Force North of the Pennsylvania Attorney General's office.
There were charges pending against Palm as well, but he was found shot to death in the Shenango Wildlife Area in Vernon Township in Trumbull County. The Trumbull County Coroner's Office ruled his death a homicide.
Troopers of the Ohio State Highway Patrol arrested Bruce Coxson, 46, of Vernon on Friday on a charge of tampering with evidence in that slaying. Coxson is in Trumbull County jail on $100,000 bond.
Strahler alleged Palm made a number of marijuana sales to an undercover task force agent in an investigation that began in August.

A woman the task force identified as his girlfriend, Nadine Dennison, 42, of South High Street, was among those arrested in the probe, as was her son, Jason Davidson, 21, of the same address, Strahler said.
Two others identified as Palm acquaintances -- George Woods, 57, and Keith A. Walker, 29, both of West Main Street -- were arrested as well.
Strahler said additional arrests are expected.
Dennison was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance and conspiracy, and was freed on her own recognizance.
Davidson was charged with two counts of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, two counts of possession, two counts of conspiracy and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was freed on $5,000 bond.
