Cleveland police investigating death at local hospital

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Police are investigating the suspicious death of a 27-year-old Cleveland woman who was dropped off a local hospital this past weekend.

Officers were first alerted to Nichole Richards after she was found unconscious near an intersection in the city's Clark-Fulton section on Saturday night. At the time of the call, police say Richards was being driven to MetroHealth Medical Center by a man who fled the area on foot immediately after dropping her off.

Richards had bruising on her neck and arrived at the hospital in full cardiac arrest.

Police believe violence contributed to Richards' death, which has not been ruled a homicide at this time. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner will determine how she died.
