Ashtabula Police Department Press Release


Shortly after 5:00 pm on Monday, March 4th the Ashtabula Police Department responded to a call from the Ashtabula County Medical Center (ACMC) of a deceased elderly man who was dropped off at their facility by two unidentified females. The females reportedly left shortly after their arrival without providing any information about the man or themselves. A few hours later one of the females contacted ACMC and gave them some information on the deceased man who was later positively identified as Douglas Layman of Ashtabula, age 80.

Officers responded to Mr. Layman’s residence and made contact with the two females identified as Loreen B. Feralo and Karen Casbohm. Having had an opportunity to interview them at the home investigators obtained information as to what had transpired earlier in the evening with Mr. Layman.

It is alleged that the two women had found Mr. Layman earlier in the day dead inside his residence where they both had also been residing. It is also alleged that with the help of a third individual they placed Mr. Layman in the front seat of his car and then drove to the bank where they withdrew an undisclosed amount of money from his account. It is further alleged that Mr. Layman was placed in the vehicle in such a manner that he would be visible to bank staff in order to make the withdrawal. The women then proceeded to ACMC shortly thereafter where his body was left with staff at the facility.

The two women have both been charged with Gross Abuse of a Corpse and were arraigned at the Ashtabula Municipal Court. Other charges are under review and may be forthcoming. Any person with information on this incident or any criminal matter are encouraged to contact the Ashtabula Police Dept. tip-line at (440) 992-7126.
