A woman whose body was found in her home by relatives Saturday died of a single stab wound to the chest, Lucas County deputy coroner Dr. Cynthia Beisser said yesterday.
Cori Michelle Key, 26, was probably dead about two hours before authorities arrived, Dr. Beisser said. Police were called to her home at 1142 Oakwood Ave. about 6:35 p.m. Saturday. Relatives had told police she was shot.
Dr. Beisser said Ms. Key had some bruises, but they did not contribute to her death. She said she could not tell if the bruises came from a struggle.
Ms. Key was a mother of two and a 1995 graduate of Central Catholic High.
