WESTWOOD, Ohio (FOX19) - The Hamilton County Coroner’s Office has identified a corpse kept hidden away for months inside a home as a missing 19-year-old man.

Dominic Allen, 19, has been identified as the person found inside a home that his mother and her husband were living in, according to the coroner’s office.

The office said the death is being treated as a homicide and remains under investigation.

Dominic had not been seen since Sept. 26, 2020.

Dominic’s mother, Kenya Stallworth, and her husband, Robert Robb, were arrested in early December when a corpse was found inside the home, court records show.

Stallworth and Robb tried to conceal the corpse for two months by placing clothes on it, sealing the bedroom and attempting to get rid of any odors while the body decomposed, the court records stated.

The documents say “John Doe” died in a bedroom at a home on Fenton Avenue on or around Sept. 26.

Dominic’s father, Marcus Allen, told FOX19 NOW at the time of the corpse discovery, he thought the body was his son’s.

Monday he had a powerful message for those accused in Dominic’s death.

“You all will get what you all got coming to you,” he said. “You all didn’t just take away my child. You took away the gift that God gave me. You took away my daughter’s best friend. You took away the nephew of all of my sisters and brothers. You all took him away from all of the people who loved him... and for what?”

Marcus continued: “He loved helping everybody. He was a wonderful child. He was a happy child. (...) I am proud to be his father.”

Officials were unable to verify until Monday that it was in fact his son.
