(Neb)-Grand Jury Confirms Chadron Businesman's Death A Suicide

By: John Axtell Posted at: 02/05/2018 11:58 PM
CHADRON - A Dawes County Grand Jury ruled Monday that the death last October 19th of 37-year old Chadron businessman Adrian Jensen was a suicide and there was no wrongdoing in connection with it.

       Dawes County Attorney/Coroner Vance Haug says Jensen, owner of Jensen Repair, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his business after police arrived to check on him.

      The presence of the officers triggered the need for the grand jury under a law that requires one whenever a person dies while in the custody of law enforcement or in the process of apprehension.

      Haug says Jensen "died while being apprehended" by law enforcement for a welfare check and possible mental health evaluation

       Grand jury proceedings are closed and the results sealed except for the official signing, which in this case was a "No True Bill," a determination that no one committed any criminal act relating to Mr Jensen's death. 

      Haug says police had gone to Jensen's business after receiving a call from a concerned citizen, but when they arrived they saw a man leave the business, then immediately go back inside. A short time later, they heard what they thought was a gunshot.

     Haug says that taking safety precautions, the officers entered the building and discovered Jensen's body with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
