02/27/13 On Thursday, February 21st the Marshall County 9-1-1 Dispatch Center received a call from the 5,000 block of Michigan Road in reference to a 28 year old female unresponsive and not breathing. Emergency crews responded to the scene including County Police Officer Kerry Brouyette.
During the investigation it was learned that 28 year old Trisha Hemminger, who was seven months pregnant, was found deceased at her home. She was discovered by her husband.
At this time police do not believe that foul play was involved. An autopsy was conducted on Friday and showed no evidence of trauma. Final results of the autopsy will have to wait on further testing for toxicology and other tests to try and determine her cause of death. This case is still under investigation by the Marshall County Police Department and the Marshall County Coroner’s office.
Marshall County Coroner Bill Cleavenger said, “In a case such as this, there are many tests that need to be conducted along with an extensive review of her medical history.”
Assisting agencies include the Marshall County Coroner’s Office, Union North LaPaz EMS and LaPaz Fire Department.
