  Anamoly In Shooting Suspect’s Body Determined To Be A Bullet

      The 19-year-old suspect charged in the Feb. 13 shooting death of 18-year-old Kane Wiesensee at 5515 West Blvd. had a bullet in his stomach when he was booked into the Mahoning County Jail, according to a variety of police sources.
      19-year-old Emanuel Boyd, of 5515 West Blvd. has been bound over to the Mahoning County Grand Jury on a charge of murder. He has been lodged in the jail since the night of the shooting.
      Sources say when suspects are booked into the jail, they must undergo a body scan, and while Boyd was going through the process, the scan detected an anomaly inside his body, that was determined to be a bullet.
      One well-placed police source told The Boardman News that upon discovering the bullet inside Boyd’s stomach, the suspect said a vehicle he been driving had been stopped by police prior to the time of the shooting, and he didn’t want to get in trouble, so he swallowed the bullet.
      The bullet was later recovered and turned over to Boardman police.
      Wiesensee died of a single gunshot wound to the chest, as his girlfriend was sitting in his lap, police said.
      According to police reports, Boyd first said the shooting happened “up the street,” claiming Wiesensee was the victim of a drive-by shooting. Ptl. Joe O’Grady said there were no footprints in the snow-covered ground to back-up Boyd’s claim.
      Wiesensee’s girlfriend, 18-year-old Sienna Holstein, told police she was sitting on her boyfriend’s lap and that Boyd “was playing with a gun” that she believed accidentally discharged.
      “She said she started freaking out and Kane started screaming. She also described feeling heat from the shot,” Officer O’Grady said.
