Todd PittengerFebruary 7, 2022

The death of a sheriff deputy in North Central Kansas is under investigation and is considered to be suspicious.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is investigating after a Jewell County Sheriff’s deputy was found deceased inside his home in Mankato.

According to the agency, the investigation indicates that early Monday morning at around 2:05 a.m. and 2:15 a.m., two calls were made to the Jewell County Sheriff’s Office from different subjects inside a home at 507 E. Madison in Mankato. Both calls requested police assistance due to a domestic incident in progress. When the responding deputy arrived at the home, he discovered that 27-year-old Colton Koch, of Mankato, had suffered a fatal gunshot wound. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Deputy Koch served at the Jewell County Sheriff’s Office for approximately 2 1/2 years.
