Woman found dead, naked is Warren PD officer’s daughter

Woman's body found in Warren

WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Warren Police officials confirmed that the woman found dead and naked Friday on the side of Pershing Avenue S.W. in Warren is the daughter of Warren Police Captain Timothy Roberts.

Monday, WYTV receieved a police report from Warren PD stating that the victim was 23-year-old Sierra Roberts.  WYTV has also learned that officers found a pair of men’s underwear, along with two white socks, about 50 yards from Roberts’ body.

For residents in the neighborhood, the incident is very unsettling.

“It is very scary that this could happen right by your home,” said Pershing Avenue resident Ben Davis.

David Simmons said he has lived on the southwest side for some time, and this is first time something like this has hit close to home. He was home Friday night when police were combing the scene.

“They told me they had a possible homicide here and asked me a few questions. I really don’t know anything because I didn’t see anything,” said Simmons. “It was just something I’ve never seen on this street. Cops and crime scenes, you know? It is kind of scary this close to home.”

Simmons says in his more than 40 years living in the neighborhood nothing like this has happened before.

“Things happen. It is sad. That is somebody’s daughter. It is just unfortunate this is the world we live in today,” said Simmons.

A cause of death has not been released.
