Body recovered from explosion identified


Fulton County Sheriff Roy Miller received notification from the Fulton County Coroner that the body recovered in the home explosion occurring in Swancreek Township on Aug. 30 was that of 56-year-old Terry Daubenmeyer.

Daubenmeyer, the owner of the home at 2513 U.S. 20A, was positively identified through dental records. He had barricaded himself in the home after sheriff’s deputies were dispatched there on a domestic dispute. His wife and children were safely escorted from the scene before Daubenmeyer set the home on fire.

The house exploded following a propane leak.

The Ohio State Fire Marshal continues to conduct this investigation.
