Local woman found dead on steps of residence on Jackson Street

Batavia PD is investigating the unattended death of a local woman who was found unresponsive of the porch steps of 131 Jackson St., Batavia.

The body of Summer Ogden, 38, was taken to the Monroe County Examiners Office for an autopsy.

Batavia PD released no information regarding any potential cause of death.

Ogden's name has come up frequently in arrest reports over the past four years, most often on charges of criminal contempt for violating stay away orders involving her boyfriend, Eric Duda.

Duda has faced the same charges for contacting Ogden.

Twice in 2011, both Ogden and Duda were arrested in Stafford when they were found together.

The Batavian's first encounter with Ogden and Duda was right before Christmas in 2010. Duda was manager of the Batavia Motel, 3768 W. Main St. Road, when he and the other residents were kicked out on 24-hours notice after the motel was condemned. The couple had a 10-month-old infant at the time.

Thoughts, prayers and support to all involved. It was not necessary to drag Mr. Duda through the mud. He is a man trying to get his life together. Just because they shared a past and a child does not mean that's who he is (or they are) today. Sorry he was even mentioned.

It's such a shame that someone so young was not able to get back on the "right" track. But, thankfully, that child is in a loving home with parents.

I agree with you, there is no reason to drag Mr. Duda into this, or to mention Ms. Ogden's previous problems, it comes down to sensatioal journalism, but Howard gets pissed when you call him out!
