A petition posted online at Change.org says the system failed a domestic violence victim and the death investigation should be conducted by an outside agency because of the conflict of interest.

“The DA is responsible for making decisions about whether or not there’s enough evidence to charge someone with a crime,” the petition said. “Her death is being investigated by her former coworkers. The people she bumped shoulders with and whom she engaged in small talk at the water cooler every day — her work family.”

The 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, which Young leads, issued a statement Thursday morning, saying, “Our office is not and has never been involved in an investigation regarding an employee’s death. If a law enforcement agency needs the assistance of a District Attorney’s Office under these circumstances then a special prosecutor would need to be assigned.”

The Adams County Sheriff’s Office would not provide more details about where and how she was found dead until the coroner officially releases her cause and manner of death, which is expected this week, sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Paul Gregory said.

The investigation into Petrocco’s death is active, and detectives are looking into all angles, not just suicide, Gregory said. The coroner’s office has not returned multiple requests for comment.

The motion came as she sought the recusal of Judge Sean Finn, who had worked with Young in the district attorney’s office. Young had given Finn a “negative recommendation” when Finn was up for judgeship, Petrocco said in the motion.
