WEST CARROLLTON — The killing of a man at a group home on Redbluff Drive continues to be a top priority for detectives, according to West Carrollton police.

West Carrollton Deputy Chief David Wessling described the March death of Jerrold Duskey as a “strenuous investigation” and said detectives are continuing to gather information in the case.

Duskey, 65, died from complications of multiple blunt force injuries to his head, torso and left upper extremity, the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office said in May.

Wessling said the investigation stems from a mid-February response to ResCare Red Bluff, where Duskey, who was developmentally disabled, lived.

A residential manager at the group home on Redbluff Drive reported to police possible physical abuse involving one of its residents on Feb. 14.

Two caregivers who were working at the time the incident occurred were removed from employment “immediately,” according to a company spokeswoman.

Neither caregiver has ever been named by management of the group home.

No formal charges have ever been approved in the case, records show.
