GAMBIER — The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is attempting to locate a Gambier man suspected in the death of his cousin.

Kevin Remillard, 48, is being sought in the death of Nick Remillard, 20, after deputies were sent out for a well-being check Sunday, Sheriff David Shaffer said. Nick was discovered deceased outside the residence, Shaffer said.

The sheriff’s office has been at the residence, located in the 400 block of Gaskin Avenue, since about 1 p.m. Sunday. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is also on scene. The sheriff initially reported both Kevin and Nick missing.

Shaffer said Nick and Kevin are cousins. No one else currently resides in the home, Shaffer said.

Kevin is believed to be armed and dangerous, Shaffer said. Kevin is known to ride a bicycle, which is also missing. The bicycle is described as black with stickers on the front and possibly a milk crate attached to the back.

A neighbor, speaking with the News, said they had last seen Nick’s truck at the residence two days ago.

The neighbor said that Nick’s mother’s vehicle was at the residence yesterday and today. Nick and Kevin were friendly, the neighbor said. Kevin was often seen outside working around the house, and Nick waved whenever he drove by, the neighbor said.

Anyone with information should contact the sheriff office at 740-397-3333 ext. 1 or call 911.
