A cross was burned in the yard of a Smith County man after what his family is referring to as a vicious hate crime occurred. Family members say that Craig Wilson was beaten with brass knuckles and shotMore >>
A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
A local family says they
should not have to see their son disinterred again, but Wednesday morning, the
body of 19-year-old Jake Limberios is scheduled to be exhumed.
His parents, Mike and
Shannon, have been highly critical of how Sandusky County officials have
handled Limberios' case. To protest, Mike is planning to lay on top of his son's
"This just all feels in
vain, to go through this, and it's going to be inconclusive because there's
nothing to see," Shannon said.
She and her husband had
their son's body exhumed last September, and hired famed forensic pathologist
Cyril Wecht to do an autopsy. They don't believe Jake's shooting death in March
2012 was an accidental suicide, as it was ruled.

was no gunpowder residue in Jake's head wound, proof that he could not have
fired the shot.
Now Limberios' parents
want investigators to use part of Wecht's sample, instead of exhuming the body
"We've asked for that,"
Mike Limberios said. "There's no paperwork. They're coming in here as grave
robbers and taking our son out of the ground tomorrow."
Mike will lay down across
his son's grave in protest Wednesday morning. Family and friends will be
present, as well.
Special Prosecutor Dean
Henry said the exhumation must go on, since Wecht indicated it could be a
"It's a horrible thing to
do," Henry said. "I don't take any pleasure in this at all."
The family says their
protest will be peaceful, but Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth plans to be at
the cemetery to make sure.
