The Hardin County Sheriff's Office issued the following release late Thursday morning regarding its investigation into a homicide on Wednesday, July 7:

"The Hardin County Sheriff's Office is continuing its investigation into a homicide that occurred Wednesday evening in Buck Township in Southeast Hardin County.

Sheriff's investigators, being assisted by Ohio BCI&I and the Hardin County Coroner's Office, are following all potential leads as they are received. The Hardin County Prosecutor's Office is also assisting with the investigation to ensure thorough case development.

The body of the male victim was transferred to the Montgomery County Coroner's Office for an autopsy. The victim's name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The Sheriff's Office does not believe that any local residents have reason to be concerned with a subject or subjects being at large in the area, which would present a concern for their safety.

Anyone who may have information of any nature concerning this case should contact the Hardin County Sheriff's Office at (419) 673-1268, or call the Sheriff's Office Tip Line at (419) 675-8475."

Polls closed across Ohio

Despite a judge's ruling denying a temporary retraining order sought to delay today's election, Ohio Health Director Dr. Amy Acton late yesterday ordered polls closed throughout Ohio, a mandate that will remain "in full force and effect until the State of Emergency declared by the governor no longer exists" or she modifies the order. Governor Mike DeWine announced the effort yesterday afternoon during a press conference and gave the lawsuit his full support. With the judge's ruling established, Dr. Acton mandated the closures late last night as part of ongoing efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 infections.

What this means for Ohio voters who have yet to cast a ballot remains unclear. The TRO sought through the court included provisions for continued absentee and early voting. It also established a new date, Tuesday, June 2, for in-person voting. Dr. Acton's order offers no such provisions.

"While the polls will be closed tomorrow, Secretary of State Frank LaRose will seek a remedy through the courts to extend voting options so that every voter who wants to vote will be granted that opportunity," Governor DeWine said in a statement.

Gov. DeWine proposes postponing March ballot

OHIO — In a press conference held at 2:30 p.m. today, Governor Mike DeWine recommended postponing tomorrow's primary election until June 2. DeWine proposed the action in the face of growing concerns expressed by Ohioans regarding COVID-19 exposure.

In addressing what is for many the very real alternative between protecting personal health and exercising a civic right and responsibility, DeWine said, "We should not force them to make this choice."

Ohio's governor, however — short of an invasion by a hostile oppressor — doesn't have the power to mandate a change in an established election date. In order to effect the change, a group of concerned citizens has filed a lawsuit in Franklin County Common Pleas Court requesting a delay in in-person voting until June 2. DeWine asserted early voting and absentee options will continue until the proposed June 2 in-person ballot.

The Herald will continue to post breaking news on the matter until its resolution on this social media site and in Thursday's issue.
