Youngstown police build time line for city’s latest killing

Staff Report


Police are attempting to build a time line for 32-year-old Duane Colvin’s last few hours alive by interviewing witnesses and neighbors.

Residents of the South Side neighborhood found Colvin dead in a field early Saturday between 463 and 471 Ferndale Ave.

“We are trying to interview people to find out where he was living hours before he died,” Police Chief Rod Foley said Sunday night.

He said there have been no warrants issued.

The police report listed his address at 359 E. Florida Ave., about one and half northeast of where his body was found, but police are not even sure if he was living there.

There were two bullet casings found in the driveway of 464 W. Judson Ave., and a witness said she heard five shots fired Friday night. Police found three bullet holes, two in a tree near and one in a fence near the Judson residence. The next morning, a worker found the body and called a friend who worked as a 911 dispatcher. Police found Colvin lying on his side about 10 a.m.

Foley would not say how many bullets entered Colvin’s body or where on his body the fatal shot or shots were.
