Photos show crime scene in Tallmadge where bodies of Wendy Ralston and son were found

TALLMADGE, Ohio - Crime scene tape still hangs at the Tallmadge home of a woman and her 5-year-old son who were found dead over the weekend.

Tallmadge police said they will meet with Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations agents on Thursday to go over evidence in the death of Wendy Ralston, 31, and her son Peyton.

Part of the crime scene at and around Ralston's Stone Creek Drive duplex has been cleared. Police are guarding the area, and yellow crime scene tape remains around the house and yard.

NewsChannel5 has obtained photos of the scene where the remains were discovered Saturday afternoon in a wooded area behind the house.

The Summit County Medical Examiner's Office said in a report that they were wrapped in a comforter and sheet, then put in a duffel bag.

On Tuesday, investigators said the remains were being sent to Mercyhurst University in Pennsylvania so an anthropologist could determine time of death. Police said it could take weeks to determine how they died.

Ralston and her son were reported missing by her mother on Aug. 7 to the Tallmadge Police Department. Ralston's 39-year-old live-in boyfriend is considered a person of interest in the case.
