Moreland Hills Police were called to a home in the 31000 block of Jackson Road on Monday night after a friend found the body of Sandra Lertzman, 62, inside her car along with 31 dogs, most of them puppies.
Police say Lertzman’s car was still running in her garage. Detectives found several prescription vials in the vehicle and a suicide note inside the house.
Police aren’t sure how long Lertzman and the pets were dead before they were found, but investigators say she was last seen on Sunday.
