Heather Campbell’s father says police could’ve done more

Twenty-four hours before Heather Campbell and her boyfriend’s bodies were found in their apartment, a neighbor called the police and reported loud arguing and three gunshots coming from the couple’s apartment. When police arrived, they knocked on the door but no one answered. They then left.

Campbell’s father, Joe Bronczyk, said he wishes police would’ve forced themselves in.

According to The Dispatch per an Ohio State University’s Mortiz College of Law professor, police can enter residences without a warrant in any of the following circumstances:

  • emergency situation requiring swift action to prevent imminent danger to life or serious damage to property
  • to forestall the imminent escape of a suspect
  • destruction of evidence

Ultimately, whether an officer decides to enter a home without a warrant is up to his or her own discretion.

Bronczyk would like to see police protocol changed so that this doesn’t happen to any other family.
