UNION TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - A death investigation is underway in Clermont County.

Union Township police and EMS responded to a report of an unconscious person in the 4000 block of Powderhorn Drive near Summerside Road shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday, police said in a news release early Friday.

According to the police incident report, an officer was flagged down by a male in the front yard who said that he and his girlfriend were there to pick up her friend to go to Florida.

The officer said he went through the front door, walked up the stairs, and saw the victim on the ground, the report said.

The report goes on to say that the victim’s friend was at her side, crying hysterically.

The officer asked the friend to move away from the victim and wait outside the home.

The incident report says neither the officer nor EMS could get the victim’s pulse and EMS confirmed the victim was deceased.

Several additional units arrived to secure the scene.

“I came home last night, I worked second shift this week, and I rolled in probably around 1 p.m., and there was a lot going on down there,” said neighbor Shane Mosley. “They had the road blocked.”

The victims’s name and age have not been released.

No further information has been released about exactly what occurred in the home or a motive.

While looking into the family’s background, FOX19 learned that Thursday was not the first time police have come to the home on Powderhorn Drive.

Court documents show on July 14 police responded to a domestic violence incident.
