Details Slow Coming in Union Hall Death

16 Dec

Police and government officials are being tight lipped about the death of a Lake Village man on Friday morning.  According to unverified reports, the incident was caught on video tape and at least one person has been charged.  The Gazette has put out feelers for  information but has found little so far.  This is what we have been able to verify.  The fight occurred Thursday night at the Local 150 Operating Engineers hall in Merrillville.  Jacob Oxley, the victim in the matter, was a member of the union.  He reported to work on Friday morning where he died.  Sadly, Oxley just found that he is expecting a child.  Police have arrested at least one person based on the video.  At least one more arrest is expected.

Merrillville Police are investigating.
