Police investigating death of woman, 20

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The Kentucky State Police and the Fort Thomas Police are investigating the death of Tonya Sellars, 20, of Somerset.

        On Thursday, three men that Ms. Sellars was staying with in Falmouth reportedly found her unconscious and unresponsive. The men said they attempted to revive Ms. Sellars before driving her to St. Luke East Hospital in Fort Thomas. The three then left the hospital before they could be questioned by police.

        Ms. Sellars was pronounced dead at 9:30 p.m. A preliminary investigation indicates she died of a drug overdose.

        The investigation continues, but no charges have been filed. State police say they are withholding the names of the three men until preliminary results of an autopsy are released.
