Special prosecutor says he will 'explore every possible lead' in fatal South Bend police shooting

SOUTH BEND— Ric Hertel, the special prosecutor reviewing last month’s fatal shooting by a South Bend police officer, outlined his plans Tuesday for what he described as a thorough re-investigation of 54-year-old Eric Logan’s death.

Hertel said he and Indiana State Police investigators on his team were in South Bend on Monday, speaking with Logan’s family and members of the St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit, which conducted the initial investigation of Logan’s shooting before county Prosecutor Ken Cotter recused himself from the case.

Speaking at a news conference Tuesday, Hertel said his investigation could involve a wide range of steps, including speaking with witnesses, reviewing the evidence already collected and overseeing forensic testing of evidence.

“We want to explore every possible lead for an independent, thorough review of what happened on June 16,” he said.
