PASSERBY FINDS BURNED BODY
BY WILLIAM WEATHERS - ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER
AVONDALE - A badly burned body was found beside an abandoned apartment building on a dead end street Thursday morning. "The body is burned beyond recognition," Cincinnati Police Chief Tom Streicher said. A passerby found the body in the 700 block of Wehrman Avenue about 10:45 a.m., Sreicher said.
The body was found about 10 feet from the south side of the old, two story building. The building has been vacant about five years. The discovery is the second burned body found in five weeks in Avondale. Police found the body of Consonya "Sharee" Crawford, 14, on May 11 at a dead-end off Blair Avenue.
Terry Daly, a spokesman for the Hamilton County Coroner's Office, said Thursday the Crawford autopsy was in progress with the case of death being listed only as "homicial violence." Efforts to determine the cause of death have been hampered by the body's condition, he said.
News of the lastest discovery forced children inside at a nearby child-care program at Corinthian Baptist Church. "We don't know what's going on," said Pastor KZ Smith. "We want to make sure we keep them safe." Smith said some children found a bag of IDs for several women behind the church a few days ago.
"We don't know if there is a connection between this (the discovery of the body) and the IDs," he said.
******Enquirer Story Ends There******
What are your thoughts on these two morbidly vile murders. All we can be sure of is that if the Cincinnati police don't catch the murdering bastard(s) soon, there could very well be a third, a fourth or a fifth burned body found again in Avondale or somewhere else for that matter.
If you have any information on the burned body found on Thursday or any information regarding the Consonya Sharee Crawford case, please contact the police and report what you know. Sharee's family needs closure and the community at large is at risk, if the murderer(s) continue to roam and burn up folk at will.
And we pray that this is the end. And not the beginning of something far worse to come...
