14 Death Of Jefferson County Man Results In Indictment Of Morgan County Resident Area authorities are on the lookout for a Great Cacapon (Morgan County) man in- dicted last week on an in- voluntary manslaughter charge in the death of a for- mer Jefferson County resident. Being sought is Samuel Barron, who had been questioned extensively by Morgan County law en- forcement agencies in the death last September 16 of Loring Roosevelt Jenkins, 47, of Summit Point. Jenkins, who was mentally retarded to the point where he could not care for himself, had been placed in the Barron home for custodial care following the death of his mother and the inability of other members of the family to care for him. In September, 1981, Barton informed the family (who reside in Jefferson County) that Jenkins had been taken to War Memorial Hospital, Berkeley Springs, for treat- ment of injuries sustained in a fall outside the Barron residence. The family later moved Jenkins to Winchester Memorial Hospital were he expired. According to medical authorities, Jenkins died of perotinitis induced by a punctured colon. A short time later Morgan County Prosecutor David Sevasten and the sheriff's department launched an in- vestigation which culminated in the grand jury indictment returned last week. In the meantime, Barron has been missing from his home for about the past six weeks. Jenkins has three sisters, Mrs. Sonny Burner, Mrs. John Davis and Mr. Tom Housden, and a brother, Walter Jenkins, all of Summit Point; and two sisters, Mrs. Margaret Crim, Winchester; and Mrs. George Jenkins, Sperryville, Va.
