SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio - A 17-year-old has been charged with the beating death of a 65-year-old South Euclid woman.
Police found Jacqueline P. Gavorski facedown in her driveway in the area of Ardmore and Sheffield roads early Saturday morning. Witnesses told South Euclid police that she was robbed by a group of teens (you know what that means!) while coming home from the grocery store.
Police said the group was spotted on surveillance video behind Alesci’s Deli on Mayfield Road going through Gavorski’s purse. Four people were taken into custody, but only the 17-year-old was charged with aggravated robbery and murder.
The Cuyahoga county Medical Examiner’s Office released the victim’s cause of death on Monday. Gavorski died of blunt impact to the head with skull fractures.
Gavorski was described by neighbors as a nice and wonderful woman, who even bought Christmas gifts for some of the neighborhood children.
