Coroner suspects overdose killed daughter of Warren police officer

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

The Trumbull County Coroner suspects that a woman whose body was found along the side of a road in Warren died from a drug overdose.

Dr. Humphrey Germaniuk told 21 News on Tuesday that preliminary evidence leads him to believe that 23-year-old Sierra Roberts succumbed to a fatal dose of drugs.

However, Dr. Germaniuk says it could be another eight weeks before the results of toxicology tests are returned to determine the official cause of death.

The nude body of the victim was found on Pershing Avenue SW Friday night. There were no visible signs of trauma on the body.

However police are still investigating since they believe her body was dropped off along the road.

Roberts is the daughter of Warren Police Captain Timothy Roberts, Division Commander of Emergency Services.

According to court records, Sierra Roberts was still on probation stemming from a 2012 indictment on a charge of heroin possession in 2012.

Last year, Judge Wyatt McKay added additional conditions to the terms of her community control after she was cited for a probation violation.
