STOREY COUNTY, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- It's a case that has added to an already heated campaign for sheriff in Storey County, and has even led to accusations of a cover-up.

Virginia City resident Judy Black fell down some stairs in her house on Combination Road and died on April 3.   

Sheriff Gerald Antinoro said all indications point to an accidental death, but sources within the Sheriff's Office tell News 4 there were some suspicious signs that were overlooked. Some of those signs include blood found upstairs that was never collected as evidence. News 4 has also been told the extent of Black's injuries raised questions among those at the scene.

News 4 has learned the Sheriff met with the Washoe County coroner last week to discuss the case, but nothing official has been released. Sheriff Antinoro confirmed that meeting took place, but declined to comment other than to say he and the coroner exchanged some notes on the case.

Antinoro said the autopsy results could be announced any day now.

Another try by Joe Hart to unseat Sherrif Antinoro.. I, David Greninger a very close neighbour of the Black's was asked by the Sheriff later in the afternoon of Judy Black's death to please go in the house and clean it up before Judy's husband Bret Black was brought home from the hospital. I and another gentleman Jerry Hawkins went into the house, and cleaned up all of the blood in about 20 minuets. Most of the blood was in the stairwell where Judy came to rest after her fall down the stairs. Bret is a early to bed guy, with his dog Jessie. Bret removed his hearing aides and went to bed around 10PM. Judy who was a nightowl stayed up till late hours. When Bret awoke the next morning, he went to the bedroom door opened it and saw Judy laying at the bottom of the stairs. He went down in his stocking feet, checked on his wife who was dead for some time, went back up stairs and called the Sheriff's office. According to the Sheriff, there was nothing suspious about the accident. There was a large amount of blood in the stairway, and some small amounts splattered on the floor and wall near where she had fallen. The OTHER blood about the house consisted of a few footprints from stocking feet, a smudge on the upper stairway wall, and some smudged blood on Bret's bed.. After cleaning up the floors and wall, Jerry and I let Bret into his house to try to relax. The next morning a Doctor friend his wife and my wife Breck, went to the house to change the sheets, and look for any other blood that might have been missed. There was no other EVIDENCE to be covered up. Joe Hart was made aware of all of this shortly after his first airing of the COVER UP. Had he done his investigation correctly, he could have talked to me, which he did the day he interviewed Antionro and could have been taken to the house to see for himself. But no Joe Hart must have another agenda. I hope that Bret Black and his Attourny have a field day with Hart and Channel 4.Reporting at it's worst.

Another B. S. story by Hart to try to unseat Antionro.. I and another gentleman cleaned up the blood from THROUGHOUT the house.. There was blood in the stairwell where Judy Black had landed that evening, a very small amount on the wall,(spray type patterns, and a few stocking footprints up the stairs where Bret Black retreated to after finding his wife dead that morning.. a smudge on the upper stairway wall, a couple of footprints on the bedroom floor leading to the bathroom and a small smudge on the bed...Not foul play, not a coverup as Hart is trying to lead to.. Shame on you Joe Hart, you were informing off all of the shortly after your first news release of a MURDER COVER-UP, yet you still try to make news of it, and right before an election. You had your chance to get ALL of the information, not just what some INSIDERS at the Sheriff's Department are feeding you.. Oh yeah, two of the Deputies are running against Antinoro, with a lot of outside influnce... I will now start watching Channel 8 news... No B.S. from them... Shame on you Hart....David Greninger, close neighbour of the Black family...
