61-year-old man arrested for murder of woman found in downtown alley
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - 47-year-old Tracy Hawes was found beaten to death in a downtown alley in early October.
Police have arrested 61-year-old William Sanford and charged him with murder.
Pendery Alley runs between Court and Race Streets. It’s a block or so from the Kroger building.
Thursday morning, just after midnight, police were called to that location and found a body in the alley, who was later identified as 47-year-old Tracy Hawes.
Law enforcement sources say that Hawes was apparently beaten with a blunt object.
A couple of nearby residents who called 911 said that they heard loud screaming.
There are some security cameras on buildings in the area and if the cameras were working Thursday night they may provide some information that will help solve the murder of Tracy Hawes.
