When California native Fernando Ramos Jr. died in Ohio last fall, no one cried, no one cared, no one came. Ramos, who apparently drank himself to death at age 52, was kept in the cooler at Akron City Hospital for five days. When no living soul dropped by to claim him, he was shipped to the morgue at the Summit County Medical Examiner's Office.
