The Urbana City Council met for a regular meeting Tuesday evening. The meeting began with the recognition of seven officers (pictured left) from the Urbana Police Department. The officers were recognized for their service in the Jessica Sacco homicide case.
Jessica Sacco, 21, was brutally murdered by her boyfriend, Matthew Starr Puccio, 25, in March. Four others assisted Puccio with the murder and dismemberment of Sacco’s body. All five pleaded guilty to charges related to the roles they each had in the murder.
Urbana Police Chief Matt Lingrell presented the seven officers with a framed certificate that recognized their effort in the homicide investigation. Lingrell also awarded a plaque to two representatives from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for their support and assistance in the investigation.
