Belmont County, OH ---

Investigators in Belmont County are working to learn more about what they’re calling a questionable death.

 

Sheriff Dave Lucas says his office was called to the scene after local emergency responders found an elderly man dead inside a home.

                               

That call was made around 5:30 p.m. Lucas would not disclose the location of the home but he did inform NEWS9 that it is located along Powhatan Hill Road just outside of Powhatan Point.

               

Lucas says his investigators are currently working with the county coroner and the Bureau of Criminal Investigation to learn more. He spoke briefly and exclusively with NEWS9 late on Monday night.

 

“As soon as the medical department gets back with us we'll go from there but right now it's a questionable death and we're in investigative mode processing the scene," said Lucas.

 

Lucas would not comment on the cause of the man's death. He would only say that the questionable death is under investigation. Lucas says no new information will be released until Tuesday morning. Stay with NEWS9 and WTOV9.com for continuing coverage.
