FAIRVIEW PARK, Ohio - The parents of Carnell Sledge, the 40-year-old man shot dead in Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Reservation Tuesday, did not know the 33-year-old woman who was killed along with him.

That’s according to Beverly Perry, a cousin of Sledge’s grandmother. Perry told Thursday that police went to the home of Carl and Darlene Sledge, the parents of Carnell Sledge, in Bedford at 2 a.m. Wednesday to notify them of their son’s death. Perry said detectives showed Carl Sledge a picture of Katherine Brown, 33, of Fairview Park, but he didn’t recognize her.
