Man found dead on Alverne Drive in Boardman

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) — The state Crime Scene unit was at a Boardman house Saturday afternoon where a man was found dead earlier in the week.

Chris Craft, 48, died Sunday after being hit with a massive blow to the side of his face and neck. His body was found inside this house on Alverne Drive and his death ruled a homicide.

Someone called 911 that day, saying Craft had shot himself that morning, after the two men spent the night at the victim’s house on Alverne Drive.

The caller also claims the two drank beer and did cocaine.
