QUINCY—The death of former Quincy Township Supervisor Kerry Bumbaugh has been ruled a suicide.
Bumbaugh, 57, was found deceased Dec. 3 at the township building on Mentzer Gap Road.
According to Franklin County Coroner Jeff Conner, autopsy results revealed a self-induced overdose of prescription medications resulted in Bumbaugh’s death.
The death came just days before Bumbaugh was to appear in court. He was arrested in May following an investigation involving the FBI and charged with seven felony counts and three misdemeanor counts for allegedly defrauding an estimated $150,000 from the township and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
He was accused of misappropriating townships funds and resources by using township time, staff and equipment to work on his personal property, as well as falsifying grant and funding documents to cover his theft, according to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.
