A Hancock County business that was the scene of a death investigation in recent weeks and has found itself in the midst of legal issues caught a bit of a reprieve by the Hancock County Circuit Court.
Circuit Court Judge Scott Sirk recently granted a request for a preliminary injunction against Greenfield Granite in a civil case. In the case, the state’s Attorney General accuses Greenfield Granite of taking customers’ money without completing work.
As a result of the injunction, Attorney General Curtis Hill’s office will have two weeks to conduct a thorough inventory, and nothing can be removed from the office.
According to court records, Greenfield Granite’s former owner Amie Strohl was to have appeared in Hancock County Superior Court 2 for a civil case. In addition, she was a defendant in another case brought forward by IMC Credit Services. Court records show that a judgement was granted to IMC Credit Services after Strohl did not show for several appearances.
In addition, the Greenfield Police are conducting an active investigation after more than 70 customers filed reports with the department, alleging they paid for gravestones but never received a finished product.
Greenfield Granite was the site of a death investigation last month as officers located a 50-year-old female deceased at the business. The female was later identified as Strohl and an investigation ruled the death a suicide.
