Local Woman Dies, Car Strikes Tree

A Crothersville woman died in a single car crash Friday afternoon, April 17, shortly after 5 p.m.

According to Jackson County Deputy Adam Nicholson, Cheri A, Mankiller, 56, of Crothersville was driving south on US 31 just north of County Road 80 N when she drove off the west side of the road, down an embankment and struck a tree head-on in the northern part of Vernon Township.

Nicholson said when he arrived at the scene, the engine of the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu was still running and the doors were locked. The officer broke out the back driver’s side window to gain access.

Nicholson said he was unable to find a pulse. Jackson County EMS hooked up a heart monitor and was unable to detect any heart activity.

Jackson County Coroner Roger Wheeler pronounced Mankiller dead at the scene of the accident.

A witness following Mankiller’s southbound vehicle said that the woman’s auto left the west side of the roadway and never reduced speed. The witness reported that it didn’t appear that the vehicle slowed prior to impact with the tree.

Funeral arrangements for Mankiller are being handled by Adams Funeral Home in Crothersville.

Local Building Gets No Bid At Tax Sale

Three of the five properties offered last Wednesday at the Commissioners’ certificate sale were purchased. All of the parcels advertised were on the list for owing delinquent property taxes.

One of the two parcels that did not receive the minimum $200 bid was property owned by Environmental Awareness Reached Through Helping Hands, at 121 E. Howard Street in Crothersville.

The brick building has been the focus of the Crothersville Town Council due to its deteriorated condition. The council had discussed what to do with the building at their April 7 council meeting but delayed action pending the county certificate sale.

A 4/10 of an acre parcel at 611 North Street in Seymour, likewise, did not receive a minimum bid.

A .53 of an acres parcel at 3178 W. Water Street in Vallonia was sold for $450 and a .53 of an acre parcel at 7374 E 725 N Seymour was sold for $450. Both parcels were purchased by Tax Lien Trust 2033 of Indianapolis.

A1.07 acre parcel at 10366 N State Road 11, Seymour was purchased for $1,450 by Vida Investment Group LLC of Columbus.
