Arrest made in death of former Goshen City Councilman


Elkhart County Deputies arrested a 22-year-old Elkhart man in connection to the death of a former Goshen City Councilman.

Officials say Cody Garman, 22, now faces voluntary manslaughter and aggravated battery charges for the death of David Swartley, 66.

Deputies arrested Garman Friday night after he met with investigators.

Swartley was found unresponsive Thursday morning in a vehicle in the 24000 block of Ne-Ce-Dah Drive.

Deputies were responding to an abandoned vehicle when they found Swartley inside with a head injury. He was unresponsive but breathing, according to law enforcement.

He was pronounced dead Thursday night at Elkhart General Hospital.

Swartley worked as a Councilman and business man for the city of Goshen from 1992 to 1999. An autopsy was being conducted Saturday to determine his cause of death.

This case is still under investigation.
