Medina homicide victims ID’d as suspect’s wife and mother-in-law


MEDINA, Ohio (WJW)– Authorities in Medina County released additional details about the deaths of two women.

Medina police said officers responded to a home on Lafayette Road at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday for a shooting. There, they discovered a 17-year-old boy who reported his father had shot his stepmother and grandmother.

Officers surrounded the house, but the suspect, 52-year-old Robert Dick, was not there. The victims were identified as Dick’s wife, 46-year-old Pamela Dick, and her mother, 84-year-old Lilian Cox.

Dick’s vehicle was later located on Wiley Road in West Salem. After leaving his car, he got a ride with a good Samaritan. Police said there was an argument between them and that’s when Dick pulled out a gun and fled into the woods.

Then, at about 11:50 p.m., a person spotted the suspect in the area of Dragway 42.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office on Friday released video of Dick’s arrest which happened just before midnight Thursday. Dick answered when asked his name by sheriff’s deputies. He also told deputies he had a pistol in his pocket. The video shows a deputy taking the gun and putting it on the ground.
