Autopsy done, sheriff says body possibly IDed

HANGING ROCK — Lawrence County Sheriff Jeff Lawless said the autopsy of a body found at the Rumpke recycling facility in Hanging Rock Monday has been completed and a tentative identification has been made. He said he would wait until a definite identification has been made before releasing the man’s name.

Lawless said the autopsy revealed the person was not murdered.

“There are no signs of foul play,” he said.

The body was found by employees sifting through cardboard Monday midday. It is believed the man was picked up by a Rumpke truck during one of the stops along the route Saturday.
