Ohio school shooting victim's father dies on anniversary



Published: Thu, February 27, 2014 @ 1:17 p.m.

The father of one of three teens killed in a northeast Ohio school shooting was found dead today, the second anniversary of his son’s death, a sheriff’s investigator said.

A family member found 48-year-old Russell King Sr. dead inside his home, said Lt. John Hiscox of the Geauga County Sheriff’s Department. There were no signs of foul play, he said. The cause of death had not been determined and a coroner was investigating.

“Whatever transpired, there’s no question Russell King is another victim of this tragic shooting two years ago today,” said Craig Bashein, an attorney who represents the family in a wrongful death lawsuit.

King’s 17-year-old son, Russell King Jr., was one of three students killed in the shooting at Chardon High School east of Cleveland. Three other students were wounded.

T.J. Lane, who was at the school waiting for a bus to an alternative school, took a .22-caliber pistol and a knife to the high school and fired 10 shots at a group of students inside the cafeteria on Feb. 27, 2012, prosecutors said.
