Troopers File Search Warrants in Death Investigation

A man’s death in Wayne County over the weekend may have been more than an accident.

That’s according to court papers that say Ryan Clemo’s death came after a possible fight and struggle.

Troopers said Clemo died at the emergency room at Wayne Memorial Hospital in Honesdale Saturday morning

State police obtained two search warrants late Monday seeking evidence of any kind of fight or struggle that could make Clemo’s death a case of criminal homicide.

Ryan Clemo was at his girlfriend’s home on Rose Hill Road in Dyberry Township late Friday night, according to troopers.

The 31-year-old father of two left in an ambulance and now his death is under investigation.

Clemo’s mother and sister flipped through photos for his funeral service. The family wants to know what happened that night and longtime friend Josh Korb said everyone is staying strong while police investigate.
