ELMWOOD PLACE, Ohio - The woman who officials found dead on an Elmwood Place porch Sunday morning was a local mother of two, according to information released Tuesday.
Police were called to an apartment in the 5900 block of Elmwood Avenue just after 7 a.m. Sunday. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the body of 44-year-old Annette Bellamy on the porch.
Her body was transported to the Hamilton County Coroner's Office for an autopsy and officials have not released details about what caused her death.
“The unexpected loss of Annette has deeply saddened our family,” said the Bellamy family spokesperson, Pam Bellamy in a news release. “We are doing our best to cope with this tragedy but it is a very difficult time for us.”
