WTAM Weekend Host's Daughter Found Dead

Our condolences to Cleveland community activist Art McKoy, host of the Sunday night talk show "Black on Black Crime" on Clear Channel talk WTAM/1100.

McKoy had notified police and the media that his 36 year-old daughter Denise had been missing since January 16th. She was found dead in her Cleveland Heights apartment complex on Thursday night, according to an article in this morning's Plain Dealer. Police say Denise's body was found with a gunshot wound to the head, just after McKoy held a vigil for his missing daughter.

The discovery has to be upsetting, unnerving and eerie to McKoy. Among his other activities, he's well known for shining the spotlight on missing children and victims of violent crime. We haven't heard McKoy's radio show for a while...but we heard him on WTAM's newscasts Thursday, pleading for information about his missing daughter.
