Jeremiah Julian Obituary, Death – Jeremiah Julian of Lafayette, Indiana, sadly died in a fatal car accident. He was identified as the driver in this sad incident. Tippecanoe County Coroner Carrie Costello said Tuesday that Jeremiah Julian died early Saturday when he drove his car off the east side of Tippecanoe County Road 900 East and into a ravine. Julian, who lives in West Lafayette and is 43 years old, was driving his Chevy south on County Road 900 East and south of County Road 200 North. Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Office says Julian’s car crossed the center line, went off the east side of the road, and fell into a ravine. Costello was trying to figure out what city Julian lived in.
The accident report said that Julian was not wearing a seat belt, and he was found outside the car. But the news release from the sheriff’s office doesn’t say if Julian was thrown out of the car as it rolled or if he stayed in the car and got out to climb back up the hill. Around 10 a.m. Saturday, a neighbor saw Julian’s car in the ravine and called 911. Investigators of the accident said that it was likely to have happened sometime after 12:30 a.m. on Saturday. Costello said Tuesday, after the autopsy, that Julian’s death was caused by a blow to the head. Until toxicology reports come back, it looks like the death was an accident.
