Todd Shellenbarger ’87 is Assistant U.S. Attorney, Evansville (IN) Office, Indiana – Southern District. On April 3 he will speak on campus with a lunchtime talk, “The No Body Murder Case and other Reflections on a Career as a Prosecuting Attorney,” focusing on a murder case that he won as a state prosecutor even though he had no body to use as evidence against the suspect. Conviction for murder is (as will be heard at the talk) possible, but difficult to prove, forcing prosecutors to rely on other types of evidence.
Todd will also speak about his career path, law school, and current duties as an Assistant United States Attorney. After Wabash, Todd earned his JD at Indiana University.
