February 11, 2011

STOW, OH: Police late Saturday announced the death of Stow police Officer Jonathan V. Bastock.

Bastock, 47, had been recuperating at home after a work-related injury, said Stow Police Chief Louis A. Dirker Jr.

He died about 10:34 a.m. in the emergency room at Summa Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, the Summit County Medical Examiner’s office said.

He had recently undergone knee surgery, after injuring his knee on the job in early January, officials said.

An autopsy will be performed Monday.

Bastock had been a full-time Stow police officer since Nov. 2, 1998. He had previously served as a member of the Stow Police Reserves for five years.

He was an expert on analyzing and reconstructing traffic accidents. He served on the Summit Metro Crash Response Team. He also taught at Kent State University.

Bastock and his wife live in Cuyahoga Falls. They have three children.

Redmon Funeral Home in Stow is handling arrangements. No other details were immediately available.

    It sounds like blood clots or embolisms took his life. It is a by-product of surgery and many times can not be identified in time. Blood thinners would have helped but who knew what was going on. RIP brother. RIP.

    Very sad story to here. The cause of death has me puzzled. Infection from the surgery perhaps? Its sad that something like that ended a life. RIP
