Woman Who said Deputy Coerced Her into Baptism Found Dead

Shandle Marie Riley, 42, was found dead at a home in Soddy-Daisy Wednesday. Riley made headlines in 2019 after claiming deputies baptized her after a traffic stop. Riley is one of several people suing Hamilton County Deputy Daniel Wilkey. She claimed he stripped down to his underwear and baptized her in Soddy Lake after a traffic stop, offering a citation instead of an arrest if she agreed. “Her deposition has already been done. Her testimony is preserved,” Flores said. It’s up to her children if they want to continue the case.

“I think the history of it in the media will show that a baptism by a police officer in the line of duty, in exchange for leniency in a criminal case is beyond the pale,” said Robin Flores, Riley’s attorney.

Hamilton Co. Animal Shelter resorting to last measures as space runs out

Officials at Hamilton County’s licensed animal shelter are desperately asking for folks in the community to become foster parents. Since Friday, Cincinnati Animal CARE in Northside has received 96 new animals. Monday, the facility broke a record for the number of dogs on hand in need of adoption.  They have more dogs than they have safe, and it’s creating quality-of-life issues for the pups.  “When we’ve got 175 on site, that means almost half of our dogs are living in space that we don’t feel is appropriate.”

The shelter has added emergency kennels but they’re often too small. Now staff members are putting kennels inside their offices, and they’ve been forced to add pop-up crates as a last resort.

“We’re out of space in the shelter to even put those anywhere else,” said Ray Anderson, media and community relations manager. “We’re using every nook and cranny we can find in this very, very old facility.”
