Ohio social worker dies days after attack by youth

Published: Wed, February 23, 2011 @ 2:23 p.m.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Authorities in Ohio say a social worker assaulted by a 15-year-old boy at work last week has died.

Cuyahoga County says 42-year-old Tashia Burch-York of University Heights worked for the county for 16 years as an adoption supervisor.

She was attacked at work in Cleveland last Thursday. The coroner’s office says her husband found her dead at home Tuesday and the cause is under investigation.

The sheriff’s department is investigating and says the teen has not been arrested or charged. The county executive says it’s unknown if the death is related to the attack.

Crisis counseling has been offered to her colleagues.

A person who answered the phone at the woman’s home says the family is not ready to talk about the death.

freeatlast,After reading your posts on so many different topics and yet it's the same rants. I'm curious and I'd like to know about how you became freeatlast. It sounds like you were in a large building with padded rooms. Did you escape,did your family pay off the physchiatrist? Surely you're not cured. So,how are you at last free?

Hey vindicator! Do you still think Csb workers do not deserve raises? I don't believe that I have heard any vindicator employee dying after being assaulted by one of their customers.

It is said to think a social worker who was trying to improve the lives of a teenager was killed by those she tried to help but what do you expect when your job is to go out and teach rabid dogs to behave.
