Coroner identifies deceased person

The deceased person found yesterday at the office of local veterinarian Dr. Charles (Scott) Hosket has been identified as Dr. Hosket, 65, according to a statement this morning from the Greene County Coroner.

According to a press statement, the coroner was notified at about noon yesterday, April 19, of a suicide at the address of Hosket’s home and office, 4480 US 68 North, just north of Yellow Springs.

There’s nothing ordinary for this veterinarian

It’s springtime, and on area farms cows, sheep and horses are having babies and also, like humans, catching the sniffles. All of which means that local vet Scott Hosket, a busy man in any season, finds himself traveling on dirt roads late at night and getting even less sleep than usual.

Investigation ongoing at Hosket’s

Update, 3:20 p.m. — Thursday, April 19. Chief Deputy Brown of the Greene County Sheriff’s reported that officers were dispatched to the office and residence of Dr. Scott Hosket, just north of Yellow Springs, this morning at 11:19 a.m. regarding a shooting. A deceased person was found inside the house, and the shooting appeared to be self-inflicted. The department is not releasing a name at this time and the investigation is ongoing, he said.
