Events leading up to the Thursday death of Sheridan County Clerk Audrey Koltiska paint a disturbing picture. Sheridan County Attorney Matt Redle explains that there was an ongoing investigation.
Redle said that at the conclusion of the interview, Koltiska was not arrested and released by investigators.
At this time, the amount of funds that were allegedly misappropriated in the case have not been made available. The audit will continue regarding Koltiska's possible misappropriation of public funds. Koltiska was found dead of an apparent gunshot wound shortly after 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon by a Sheridan County Sheriff's Deputy about a mile east of Sheridan on Wyarno Road. Sheridan County Coroner Mark Ferries has confirmed the death was the result of a suicide.
