Staff report


A 3-year-old boy apparently froze to death in an unheated, enclosed back porch in a home in the 2800 block of South Avenue overnight.

The boy was found after his relatives woke up and could not find him. Someone discovered him about 9 a.m. in the enclosed porch and called 911, the boy’s great aunt, Cheryl Boudrey, said on the front porch of the home early this afternoon.

Police were called and detectives are investigating.

Lt. Douglas Bobovnyik of the Detective Bureau said there were 11 people inside the home, nine of them children. Several of those children had been placed there by the Mahoning County Children Services, Bobovnyik said.

Bobovnyik identified the boy as Quentin Alli.
