October Death in Ross County ruled homicide.

The Ross County Coroner has ruled the death of a Chillicothe man pulled from his burning home in October is a homicide. The coroner says 89-year-old Harry Smith died of blunt-force trauma after several fires were set in his home. Smith's family claimed county sheriff's deputies moved too slowly, and the family subsequently hired a private investigator.
