Akron police along with the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office are investigating the deaths of two women over the weekend.
The body of the first victim, a 24 year old, was found Saturday afternoon in a field on 26th Street Southwest in the city’s Kenmore neighborhood.
The second victim, a 37 year old, was found unconscious Sunday evening on Pauline Avenue on the far east side of the city in the Ellet area. She was taken to Summa Akron City Hospital, where she later died.
Authorities say both women had a history of drugs abuse and the deaths appear to be drug related.
