Officers Seek Answers After Finding Body in Vacant Home
COLUMBUS (Kate Liebers) -- Investigators are considering the death of a woman found in a vacant home, where a man was reportedly pushing someone down the street in a bin, as a possible homicide.
Officers discovered the woman Wednesday morning at 851 Camden Ave in northeast Columbus, not far from where a neighbor told police about one mans suspicious behavior.
The caller said the man claimed the unconscious woman inside the tub was intoxicated.
"He was like, 'I'm carrying her to home. She's drunk. You want to help me?'" the caller told 911 dispatchers. "But the woman aint moving."
Columbus Fire Medics pronounced the woman, who was white and estimated to be between 25 and 34 years old, dead at 5:56 a.m. at the scene. Her identity was not immediately known.
Columbus Police Department said they hope the autopsy reveals more information about how she died, if she was dead before she was left at the vacant home, or if she could have survived if she saw a doctor.
Officers did not immediately know if foul play was involved, but said the circumstances surrounding the death appeared suspicious.
The investigation is now being processed as a possible homicide pending the Franklin County Coroners determination. No arrests have been made.
Columbus Police Department has asked anyone with information to call CPD Homicide at 614-645-4730 or Crimestoppers at 614-645-TIPS (8477).
