Body found at Lorain County Speedway


AMHERST – A 45-year-old woman was found dead in her car Tuesday by a groundskeeper at the Lorain County Speedway.

The Lorain County Sheriff’s Office is waiting on the coroner’s report to release more details, but Detective Don Barker said there were no obvious signs of trauma to Alberta Cerino of Elyria Avenue in Amherst.

Barker said the call came in at about 9:57 a.m. Tuesday after the groundskeeper spotted the car in the southern lot for the racetrack.

The death is being treated as suspicious because of where Cerino was found and more details are expected later in the week.
