Decomposed body found in Brownhelm Township

BROWNHELM TWP. – A severely decomposed body believed to be a male in his late teens or early 20s was found about a mile south of North Ridge Road, authorities said.

“It’s a suspicious death,” said Capt. John Reiber of the Lorain County Sheriff’s Department. “It’s an on-going investigation and we developed a lead that led to this area.”

County Coroner Paul Matus declined to say whether there were obvious signs of trauma and said a full autopsy would be performed Friday.
