Man who killed 4, then self in 2012 told cop it was over ‘meds’
Near the end of a long and chaotic day last July, Newton Falls Police Sgt. Stephen C. Storm spotted a white Dodge Stratus in the back of Newton Township Cemetery about 4 p.m.
Storm had been called out to help locate Robb Brazzon, 55, the man police suspected of killing Brazzon’s ex-brother-in law, Rikki Cogley, 42; Cogley’s wife, Kathy, 39; and Kathy’s son, Everett Greathouse, 15, around noon July 6 in the Cogley home.
Storm got out of his cruiser and saw Brazzon motioning to him to stay back. Brazzon had a gun in his hand and was pointing it at his own chest.
Storm pointed his gun at Brazzon and asked him what was the matter.
“He said that he was in a lot of pain. He advised that he has a lot of health issues and that b---- stole his meds,” Storm said in a police report released recently.
