Marshall County Authorities Investigate Culver Suicide


The Marshall County Coroner’s Office and Police Department are investigating an apparent Tuesday afternoon suicide in a Culver cemetery. Deputy Coroner Bridgett Hite says Margurite C. Quimby, 56, of Claypool, telephoned the 911 dispatch center, told them she was going to take her own life, and hung up. Dispatchers tried unsuccessfully to call her back and sent officers to Poplar Grove Church just east of Culver on State Road 10. Officers found Quimby’s body in the cemetery behind the church. Quimby left a note in her car with information as to who to contact, according to Hite, who says foul play is not suspected. Quimby’s family has been notified.


Accident West of Plymouth Claims Life of Starke County Man

A Knox man was killed in a single vehicle car accident last night.

Marshall County Coroner Bill Cleavenger said that 28-year-old Richard Lee Dennis was traveling westbound on 9th Road, just east of Quince Road when he encountered a set of railroad tracks. Cleavenger said it appeared that he didn’t slow or stop at the railroad tracks and went over the incline and over the tracks at a high rate of speed. The road conditions were slick at time and Dennis reportedly lost control of his vehicle and hit a tree. He was killed upon impact. Emergency personnel extricated his body from the vehicle and cleared the scene. The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department and Plymouth Police Department were assisted by the Indiana State Police Reconstruction Team.

Toxicology results are pending.
