It has been a year since Logan County Children’s Services employee Terry Turner died in a morning crash and his widow remains hopeful someone will step forward to prove her husband was working at the time.
Katrina Turner and family friends have made recent social media postings which ask any of his clients who may have met with him on the morning of March 6, 2017, to voluntarily report the meeting.
At stake are death benefits payable to Katrina Turner and her children, Tyler and Kailyn, through the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation.
