No trauma signs on dead baby found in Canton

Associated Press Published:

CANTON -- Authorities say a 14-month-old boy found dead in a northeast Ohio apartment didn't die from trauma and showed no signs of injury.

Omoyele Gonzalez was found dead in Canton on Thursday, the same day his 20-year-old mother Kayelisa Martin was killed when she ran in front of a truck on Interstate 77 in Summit County.

A Monday statement from the Stark County coroner says a preliminary autopsy indicated no signs of trauma. Final autopsy results will take several weeks.

Canton Police Dept. Capt. Dave Davis told The (Canton) Repository investigators don't know how or when the boy died.

The medical examiner's office in Summit County says it's waiting on more information from the ongoing investigation to rule on the manner of Martin's death.

Authorities are still investigating both deaths.
