LAKEWOOD, OH (WOIO)
The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has released the name of the woman found dead inside her Lakewood apartment.
Pamela Jo Friedl, 55, was found dead in a closet inside a unit of Elbur Manor apartments on Detroit Avenue. Her cause of death has not been released.
Friedl had not been seen by friends since August 20. On August 30, the apartment building manager contacted the Lakewood Police Department. He had not seen Friedl for some time, and had been taking care of her cat in the apartment.
Officers responded and found the apartment neat and orderly except for the cat which had defecated and urinated throughout the apartment.
Friedl was not located and the manager reported he would continue to look after the cat.
On Sept. 4, a friend filed a missing persons report. On Sept. 5, officers responded to the apartment again and found the woman dead.
