Ohio Civilian Killed In Iraq

April 1, 2004

An Ohio native was among the four civilians killed Wednesday in Iraq.

Thirty-two-year-old Jerry Zovko grew up in Euclid. His parents now live in nearby Willoughby.

Zovko's family says he was one of the four security contractors ambushed Wednesday by Iraqi rebels. The bodies were dragged through the streets and two of them were strung up from a bridge.

Zovko's mother says her son was a former Army man who dedicated his life to making peace in the world.

He left the Army in 2001 to work abroad for North Carolina's Blackwater Security Consulting.
