Youngstown police discover body inside south side home

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Young children seen wandering in a Youngstown neighborhood led police to discover the body of their mother.

Police on the scene say a neighbor called 9-1-1 after spotting barely-clothed children running outside their East Avondale home Thursday afternoon.

When police got there they saw a woman slumped over inside the home.

The coroner's office is still investigating, but officers say it appears that the 36-year-old woman appears to have died of an overdose.

The children are being released into their father's care.
