Body found in abandoned building


Police are investigating the death of a person, whose body was found in an abandoned building in East Cleveland Wednesday. 

Investigators say they were called to a building in the 1200 block of Hayden Avenue near Woodward Wednesday afternoon. 

That's when officials say the body was found. The body has not yet been identified but police believe that the body may have been there for weeks.

Police also say the victim may have been older, homeless and suffered from some sort of heart condition. 

The cause of death has not been determined.
