STRUTHERS

Authorities are hopeful that a missing white Chevrolet Blazer, once recovered, can provide some information about the 56-year-old man found dead Tuesday morning in his third-floor apartment at the Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority-owned Struthers Manor.

Struthers Police Chief Tim Roddy said though the car is missing, authorities aren’t sure under what circumstances. He could’ve lent it out or it could be in the shop, Roddy said, but authorities need to know for sure. The car’s license plate number is FUT8365.

He added that Struthers police — along with the Mahoning County Homicide Task Force and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation — arrived at noon after being notified of the body by facility employees. The Mahoning County Coroner’s Office is also investigating.

Though authorities were releasing few details about the death, Poland Village Police Chief Russ Beatty, who belongs to the county’s homicide task force, said it is being investigated as a homicide, like any other unattended death.
