Mechanicsburg police are releasing little information following the death of a 30-year-old woman.
Alicia Roth, 30, died the morning of June 10. Officers responded to an apartment at 60 School St. in downtown Mechanicsburg after receiving a 9-1-1 call of an unresponsive female, police said.
Medics transported Roth to Mercy Memorial Hospital in Urbana, where she was pronounced dead by hospital staff members.
Police said the investigation into Roth’s death is ongoing and no details have been released. When asked if her death was suspicious, officers said it was a “sudden death” and would not provide further information, pending toxicology results from the coroner’s office.
Roth’s body was sent to be tested the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office and the results could take six to eight weeks to complete, said Champaign County Coroner Dr. Joshua Richards.
The Springfield News-Sun requested any incident reports related to the death, but investigators said a report still hadn’t been completed as of Tuesday. The News-Sun also has requested copies of the 9-1-1 dispatch phone calls but hasn’t received them yet.
The Vernon Family Funeral Homes in Mechanicsburg handled Roth’s body, but services were held in Middletown on June 16, a funeral home spokeswoman said. Roth’s mother, Shirley Lynch, lives in Middletown, according to her obituary.
Roth’s father, Kenneth Wilkins, lives at the apartment where Roth was found dead, said a neighbor who asked to not be identified. Roth, who had two young children, was living with her father temporarily, the neighbor said.
