LIMA — Less than a week into his appointment as interim Allen County sheriff, Jimmy Everett died Tuesday night.
Everett, 62, was appointed Feb. 1 to the job after the resignation of Sam Crish, who is under investigation by the FBI and the subject of several lawsuits. Crish said he is a compulsive gambler and receiving treatment.
Everett was a 40-year employee of the Sheriff’s Office and one of its most experienced employees. He worked in nearly every job a deputy could hold in the agency. He was the logical and easy choice for commissioners to appoint to the job after Crish’s resignation.
