Roger Barto claimed that he had been jumped from behind, strangled, and hit on the head as he left the municipal building. Shattered pieces from a toilet tank were found around him when police arrived on scene. After months of investigations, the police were unable to discover any credible leads or evidence that backed up his story.

Barto was found guilty of three felonies: third degree insurance fraud, first degree falsification of business records, and defrauding the government. He was also found guilty of the misdemeanor charge of third degree falsely reporting an incident.

Of the nine total counts that the grand jury indicted him on of June 2014, he has not been tried for yet. It was alleged that Barto lied on insurance forms and falsely collected money. It was also alleged that he stole gasoline when he was the acting village cemetery sexton.
