Missing Wis. teen found dead in Ill. apartment


SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say a 17-year-old girl reported missing in Wisconsin this week has been found dead in an Illinois apartment of an apparent drug overdose.

Illinois police on Friday said Kimberly Ciotola traveled to Oak Park to meet a 22-year-old man she met online. Police Cmdr. LaDon Reynolds says Ciotola arrived Monday evening and was found dead early Tuesday morning.

Sheboygan police Capt. James Veeser says Ciotola's family reported her missing Monday.

The 22-year-old man called 911 on Tuesday about 5 a.m. Emergency responders found Ciotola unresponsive in an apartment hallway. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Reynolds says police are investigating potential criminal liability in the death.

A Sheboygan Press report quotes Reynolds as saying the teen had no known history of drug use.
