Death – Obituary

GRANT COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) — The Grant County Coroner has released the cause of death for an inmate who died after a medical emergency last week.


Grant County Jail inmate Robert E. Lowe, 58, of Gas City was taken to Marion Hospital on Friday after he was found suffering a medical emergency just after 7 a.m. Lowe was pronounced dead less than an hour later, and the Grant County Coroner’s Office and Indiana State Police were contacted to continue the investigation into his death.

An autopsy was performed in Fort Wayne and on Sunday, Grant County Coroner Stephen Dorsey released his report finding the cause of death to “being positive of the COVID-19 Virus and having Severe Coronary Disease.”

Microscopic examinations are pending, however, the report said there is no evidence of foul play.

Lowe, who police say was a foster parent in Gas City for many years, was booked into the jail in January 2021 and was being held on charges of Child Molesting, Sexual Misconduct with a Minor, Neglect of a Dependent, and Child Seduction.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
