Posted on 8/21/2019
Defendant: Carol Ann Seymour
Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said, “Through investigation, we have once again been able to identify the individual responsible for facilitating the drug transaction that ultimately took this victim’s life.” Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announced today that the Franklin County Grand Jury has returned an indictment on Carol Ann Seymour, age 60. Seymour has been indicted for various drug related counts including Involuntary Manslaughter, Corrupting Another with Drugs, and Trafficking in Heroin. On the afternoon of January 10th, 2019, Seymour went to a home where she picked up the victim Robby J. Alsey, age 37, and drove him to the west side of town where she had arranged a narcotics purchase for the victim. Immediately following the transaction, Seymour dropped the victim off back at his residence. Within approximately an hour and a half from when the victim was originally picked up by Seymour, the victim was found dead in the home. Jackson Township Medics were dispatched to the home and pronounced the victim deceased upon their arrival. O’Brien commended the Grove City Police for their investigation and involvement in this case. “As always, our office tries to aid law enforcement in their continued efforts to locate all sources of supply. If you have any information on this case, please contact the Grove City Police Department,” O’Brien stated. Seymour is scheduled to be arraigned today at 1:30 pm in courtroom 2B at 345 S. High Street in downtown Columbus.
