Authorities still trying to identify park assault victim


PENINSULA, Ohio (AP) — The National Park Service is asking for any information that can help identify a young shooting victim found in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

The park service says rangers received a report about a victim within the park’s boundaries in Peninsula at 9:21 a.m. Sunday. It said Monday she was hospitalized in critical condition with “multiple gunshot wounds” and isn’t able to communicate with investigators.

She is African American, about 18 years old, 110-120 pounds, and 5 feet, 4 or 5 inches tall. She was wearing light blue cut-off jean shorts, pink tank top and white Nike sneakers.

The Cuyahoga Valley National Park tip line is 440-546-5945.

The FBI and local police are helping the investigation.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park has 33,000 acres along the Cuyahoga River between Cleveland and Akron.
