Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department Investigates Death of 19-Year-Old

A death investigation is being conducted by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.

On Saturday evening, Pulaski County EMS and deputies were called to 518 W. Montgomery St. in Francesville for a man who was not breathing. Nineteen-year-old Devin Holbrook and 32-year-old Anthony Gentry were working on landscaping at the house and Holbrook reportedly made the comment that he wasn’t feeling well. The pair went into the house to watch television and Holbrook fell asleep in the chair. When Gentry went to wake up Holbrook, he found that Holbrook wasn’t breathing and his lips were blue. Gentry began CPR and told his mother to call 9-1-1.

Emergency personnel found that resuscitation was not possible and requested the assistance of the coroner.

Officers investigated the scene and found drugs and paraphernalia in plain view where the victim was found. They collected this evidence after consent was given to search the residence. The drugs found field-tested positive for methamphetamine and heroin.

The Pulaski County Coroner’s office and the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department continue to investigate this case.
