On May 13, 2007, Ivy Sheely, the sixteen-year-old daughter of Tabatha and Dan, died when she consumed a large bottle of Vodka, which Dan purchased for her earlier that evening.
Tabatha and Dan divorced in the mid-nineties. After the divorce, Ivy lived with Tabatha in Findlay. Up until several months before her death, Ivy visited her father at his St. Johns residence in Auglaize County on the weekends and during some school vacations. However, after Ivy reached the age of sixteen and obtained her driver’s license, she made more frequent trips to St. Johns to visit Dan. Some of the trips would last several days. It is during this time that Dan permitted Ivy and her teenage friends to consume alcohol in his home.
