Police officers conducting a welfare check last October were cleared of any criminal wrongdoing during grand jury proceedings Monday.
The grand jury returned a finding of no true bill after hearing testimony related to the suicide of Adrian Jensen Oct. 19, 2017. Chadron Police officers were called to Jensen’s Morehead business during the overnight hours that day for a welfare check.
When they arrived on scene, a man exited the building briefly before re-entering the business. A gunshot sounded shortly thereafter. Jensen’s body was discovered inside after police secured the area.
State law requires a grand jury to be convened whenever someone dies while in law enforcement custody or during apprehension.
