Five hours after a national telecast featured him as a key figure in the Rachael DelTondo homicide investigation, Sheldon Jeter Jr. was found unconscious lying on the side of a road in Aliquippa.
Aliquippa Police Chief Robert Sealock confirmed to BeaverCountian.com that police received an anonymous call shortly before 4 a.m. today of a man “laying unresponsive at the side of the road” after being “thrown from a vehicle.”
Jeter Jr., 21, was located by police on the side of Orchard Street, not far from his home. His initial condition was so serious that emergency personnel placed Life Flight in Pittsburgh on standby.
Sealock said medics were eventually able to revive Jeter with NARCAN, a medication known to reverse the effects of heroin.
Police said after Jeter was revived, he got up and left the scene on his own accord. Police said he was shouting obscenities at officers as he walked away from the scene, leaving behind his cell phone.
