Body found in Boardman

Staff report


A missing Niles woman was found dead in the Southern Park Mall parking lot Friday.

The victim’s mother told Vindicator broadcast partner, 21 WFMJ-TV, that the body of her daughter, Dawn Blagovich, 42, was discovered inside an SUV outside the mall near the Dillard’s entrance, shortly before 3 p.m. Friday.

Blagovich was a visiting nurse who worked for MVI HomeCare on Belmont Avenue, said Liberty Police Department Capt. Toby Meloro. She was reported missing early Wednesday, after she failed to show up to a scheduled patient appointment.

Both Boardman Police Department and the Mahoning County Coroner are investigating the death, but foul play is not suspected, according to WFMJ.
