Tuesday, January 29, 2013


A man was arrested in Struthers Tuesday afternoon in the death of a 13-year-old boy, police said.

An investigation that began last Wednesday resulted in the arrest of Zaryl G. Bush, 43, of Creed Street, on the basis of a warrant issued, according to a press statement from Struthers police.

The Mahoning Valley Violent Crimes Task Force arrested Bush at 3:37 p.m. on charges stemming from the death of his former girlfriend’s son.

“We are still waiting on the autopsy results, but the juvenile was taken to the hospital with head injuries and died after going to the hospital with those head injuries,” said Detective Ray Greenwood.

The investigation is still ongoing and more charges could be leveled against Bush. He is currently charged with first-degree murder and will be charged Wednesday with first-degree rape, Greenwood said.
