The social media rumor mill got cranked into overdrive in Fostoria last week. The Review-Times reports that Faccebook posters turned a domestic disturbance into something far more disturbing. Police Chief Keith Loreno says officers were called to the 300 block of Summit Street Wednesday for an alleged male-female assault. Because investigators were at the Charles Schaeffer trial, Ohio BCI&I was called in to assist.
The presence of state officials must have stirred people’s imaginations. There were rumors on the internet that someone at the home had been decapitated or dismembered. There were also allegations of a police cover-up.
Loreno told the newspaper he could assure the public that no such atrocities had happened. The incident remains under investigation.
