Golterman autopsy report in the mail

SUMMIT COUNTY – A manslaughter hearing was postponed Wednesday because a related autopsy report was not available, but County Coroner Dave Joslin said it should arrive in the next few days.

The defense attorney for Ariel Hamm-Flores, who is charged with drug distribution and manslaughter in the death of 24-year-old Keystone worker Daniel Golterman, moved to have the plea hearing continued until the pathology report on Golterman was examined. The results of the tests may influence the plea entered for Hamm-Flores.

Joslin said Thursday Jefferson County pathologist Dr. Ben Galloway mailed the report was mailed last Friday, but it has not yet arrived. Joslin said as soon as he receives it, attorneys and court officers will have it at their disposal.

“It wasn’t lost or anything,” Joslin said. “But for whatever reason, it hasn’t made it up here in the mail.”
