Fetus found in garage
Police are investigating after finding a dead, near-term fetus in the garage of a house on Kenmore Avenue on Monday morning.
Police were alerted by the Trumbull Regional Medical Center about 9:30 a.m. Monday that a woman had come to the hospital bleeding. The woman said she had a miscarriage and put the fetus in the yard.
Police did some investigating and found the fetus in the garage at a relative’s house in the 1000 block of Kenmore Avenue Southeast.
A police report listed the victim as Baby Jane Doe and indicated that the incident may have happened as far back as July 20.
The aggravated-murder trial of Anthony J. Pardon, 53, that was scheduled to begin Monday in Franklin County Common Pleas Court has been rescheduled for Oct. 10.
Pardon is accused of killing Warren native Rachel Anderson, 24, in Anderson's apartment in Columbus on Jan. 29.
Anderson, a 2012 Warren G. Harding High School graduate, was working at a Columbus funeral home and was training to be a funeral director at the time of her death.
Pardon pleaded guilty in 1982 to attempted murder, aggravated assault and rape in Columbus and spent two decades in prison, then served another 10 years in prison for failing to notify Georgia officials that he had moved to that state.
Pardon could get the death penalty if convicted.
