Dauphin county District Attorney Ed Marsico held a presser Thursday afternoon to release the findings of a grand jury report into the death of Jarrod Tutko, Jr.

Some criminal investigations were comprised. Deadlines were missed

Sean McCormack, Chief Deputy District Attorney.

An agency that was in disarray. Problems arose between Children and Youth and law enforcement.

Joe Dougher, Interim Director of Dauphin county Department of Children and Youth.

Serious mistakes, and errors in judgement were made in the past.

Questions from the press.

Several changes in the department.

I was surprised by the changes in the organization.


The Eighth Dauphin County Investigating Grand Jury.

Section 1 Findings of Fact.

The Tutko Family.

On a daily basis there are workers crying, there are supervisors crying, and not just because of what they have seen or experience, it's just walking into the place where you-you don't see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Despite Ms. Johnson's claim to the contrary, the grand jury found a number of examples of serious CPS investigations being assigned to caseworkers without CPS experience.

A six month old baby is dead, and caseworker number 7 interviews the suspect parent prior to the police interview.

As of the date of this report, no charges have been filed in this case against anyone.

Did Dauphin county CYS employees Jenna Strickley and Kirsten Johnson commit perjury on February 26, 2015 and again during recall testimony on May 26, 2015?. Read page 79 of the report.

To claim that she (Ms. Shickley) has no memory of the event and any subsequent information is simply not believable. The grand jury also finds her (Kirsten Johnson) testimony to be suspect. Ms. Johnson and Ms. Shickley continue to deny knowledge of the delinquent submission of indicated CY-48 report.

Grand Jury Recommendations.


Presentment 1.
