Darren Chiacchia Case: Official Marion Co. Sheriff’s Full Police Report

Eventing Nation has obtained a copy of the official Marion County Sheriff’s Office incident report, which is a complete description of the case from start to now, written by the investigating officers.  In cases classified as sex offenses, the name of the victim is kept out of the report, which we would have done anyway.  I have also not included the full names of the investigating officers, in an effort to protect their privacy.  The report uses all caps, so we will too.  This is the full, unedited report and all of the subsequent follow-ups by the investigating officers.  I have bolded the relevant parts, and we will have a summary post later with more information.
