A body was found at a home in the 700 block of Palmer Avenue

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown Police are ruling the death of a 53-year-old man at a home on Palmer Avenue as a murder.

A woman contacted Youngstown Police saying that she hadn’t heard from her father in four days and that his lawn wasn’t mowed, which was odd.

Police went to the home in the 700 block of Palmer Avenue around 11:30 p.m. Friday night and found the back door to the patio unlocked.

Police searched the home and found the man, dead, in the basement.

Neighbors said they had not heard or seen anything suspicious.

Police have no suspects yet and the cause of death has not been determined.
