Lance Storz Wiki – Lance Storz Biography
A man accused of murdering three police officers in eastern Kentucky last June hanged himself in jail and died, according to the prosecutor in the case. Lance Storz 50, of Floyd County, was being held at the Pike County Detention Center while awaiting trial, according to Brent Turner, the commonwealth’s attorney for Floyd County. Turner said police confirmed to him that Storz committed suicide in jail.
Storz was accused of ambushing police when they went to his Allen home last July to serve a domestic violence warrant his wife, Christina, had obtained. He alleged in the complaint that she had told Storz that she was leaving him. Storz raged and said he wouldn’t let her leave him, he said. He said Storz caught her in a bedroom, threw her across her room, slapped her and sexually assaulted her. He allegedly brandished a gun and demanded that she beg for her life and his daughter’s life, according to the complaint.

“Lance said that he has nothing to lose and that he is ‘all in,'” his wife said in the complaint. She also said that he told her, “I would never let it out of a body bag” and that he would also kill her daughter. Storz opened fire on police without warning, killing three officers, as well as a police dog, and wounding several other officers and responding officers.
The dead were Deputy Sheriff William Petry and Ralph Frasure and Jacob Chaffins, who were with the Prestonsburg Police Department. Storz finally gave up. He could have faced the death penalty in the case. Turner said he had not filed a formal notice that he would seek the death penalty if Storz was convicted, but said it was likely he would have.
