The Barren County Coroner’s office has received the autopsy results for Jeremy S. Marr.

Marr, 35, was pronounced dead at T.J. Samson Community Hospital on April 14, after being transported to the hospital by ambulance from a residential yard where GPD personnel were arresting him. This was after an alleged break-in had been reported at the residence and after it was noticed there was a medical issue occurring, according to what Kentucky State Police has released from its preliminary investigation.

Barren County Coroner Tim Gibson has turned over the autopsy report to the state police. The Glasgow Daily Times has requested a copy of the autopsy report, but was told it would not be available until after the state police wraps up its report.

Officials are hoping the autopsy report will tell them how Marr died.

Marr was confronted by police officers on April 14 after they were called to 1009 Cleveland Ave. in reference to a man trying to break into the residence.

Officers found a man outside the residence and were attempting to take him into custody when they noticed he was having some sort of medical issue according to news releases issued following the incident.

Police officers called for an ambulance and transported the man, who was later identified as Marr, to the hospital where he later died. GPD then contacted the state police and asked that it conduct an investigation.
