What happened on Lawrence St. in Sandusky last week?
Thursday afternoon, I walked past a house on Lawrence Street, and an ambulance with flashing lights was there as were three police squad cars. There was a crowd of looky-loos standing 20 to 30 feet away around a central group of maybe 10 or 12 people. Then on Friday morning, I walked by the same house. A young woman was on the porch wearing full hazard gear, including a mask. She was scrubbing on the front porch. Later on, I observed a bright sign taped to the door that said, "Do not enter. Ozone generator in use." Now I know that ozone generators are used both to eliminate strong odors as well as to sterilize areas contaminated by bacteria. Something happened at this house but what?

Sandusky police Chief John Orzech said these situations most likely resulted from a woman dying inside a home within the 200 block of Lawrence St.
