 Cousin: White House jumper's courthouse death was "suicide" CURTIS SMITH survived a run-in with the Secret Service in March when he hopped a White House fence, claiming that he wanted to pass a message to President Obama. The 34-year-old Coatesville resident was charged with unlawful entry in that incident. Tom Hogan, the county's district attorney, said Smith entered the lobby of the building around 11 a.m. and "slashed" a deputy sheriff. Another deputy sheriff then shot Smith, who was treated at the scene and transported to Paoli Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
