Girls spent days in Ohio apartment after dad died

Associated Press

COLUMBUS: A central Ohio coroner still hasn’t determined what killed a man whose two young daughters apparently spent several days in their apartment with his dead body.

Franklin County coroner Dr. Jan Gorniak tells the Columbus Dispatch that she is waiting on toxicology tests to help determine what caused the death of 48-year-old Earl Davis.

Columbus police said officers forced their way into the apartment last Thursday night and found Davis’ body. His two daughters, ages 5 and 6, were hiding upstairs.

A neighbor told police that Davis had been missing about a week. The girls were taken to a hospital where they were determined to be unharmed. Child welfare officials will likely place them with relatives.
