Woman found dead in home, autopsy ordered
From staff reports
The Erie County coroner has ordered an autopsy for a woman who was found dead at her parents’ home. Sandusky fire and police responded to the 1400 block of Buchanan St. on Friday morning. The parents of Carmela Davis, 38, called after they found their daughter unresponsive in a room when they went to check on her. Their daughter had gone out for the evening and returned home about midnight. Her father went to check on her about 10:45 a.m. because she had not been up yet, said Sandusky police officer James Desalle. Recently, Davis had started to experience medical problems with headaches, nose bleeds and blurred vision. She had also been known to abuse prescription medication and to drink heavily, according to a police report. Police said there were no indications of anything suspicious; however, due to her age, Erie County Coroner Dr. Brian Baxter asked for an autopsy.
