Supervisor Bowling was beaten with a ten-gauge bar of sheet metal, which caused his death. Immediately after the crime, the inmate admitted the murder to a corrections officer.

The inmate who beat him was a former death row inmate who was released from death row in the early 1970s when Ohio's death penalty was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. He was tried and convicted of aggravated murder and again sentenced to death for the murder of Supervisor Bowling. In January 2005 he died while still incarcerated.
