WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Warren police are investigating the discovery of a body in a vacant apartment on Thursday.
A contractor doing an asbestos check of the building in the 500 block of East Market Street, almost adjacent to the Sunrise Inn, found the body in a second-floor crawl space.
Police believe the body was there for more than a year. They do not have an identity but said it was an adult and they do not believe the person was local because there are no matching missing persons reports.
The contractor was getting the building ready for demolition.
