4-year old discovers father's body, calls for help

4 year old discovers Dad dead

CLEVELAND - With just days to go before Thanksgiving, a family has been torn apart.

Police say a father was found dead Tuesday at the Jennings Commons Apartments on Spring Road in what appears to be a drug overdose.

The man has been identified as 30-year-old Michael Dunaway.

Neighbors tell WKYC Channel 3 News that something did not seem right after seeing an ambulance there on Sunday and hearing the dad had overdosed.

Investigators say the man’s 4-year old had discovered him again and this time, the boy called his mother.

When help arrived, there was nothing anyone could do. The 30-year old was gone.

Neighbor Deelila Calderon described him as a good dad.

They say he leaves behind two young sons and had only been living there a few months at most.

It is unclear how long he had been dead. The medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death.
