Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The Montgomery County Coroner has identified the victim of an incident that took place in an alley on South Irwin Street in December 2020 as a 17-year-old boy.

The coroner initially asked for the public’s help identifying his remains Monday. 2 NEWS is choosing not to name the victim due to him being under 18 years of age.

The cause and manner of his death has not been determined at this time.

The Dayton Police Department is investigating the incident and working closely with the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office to learn the circumstances that led to the death, according to a release.

DPD said it will confer with prosecutors after the investigation if warranted.
