The body was found in the high grass near detached garage at a vacant house

WARREN TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – Police are investigating after the body of a woman was found in Warren Township on Tuesday.

A man on his way to work made the discovery on Dover Avenue SW and called 911.

“You can see there’s somebody laying in the woods and I yelled through the window and they’re unresponsive, but, you know, the person’s not moving. They look pretty stiff, you know, I just wanted to call somebody,” the caller said.

When police arrived on the scene, they found the body in the high grass near a detached garage at a vacant house. Police say it appears the woman was left there.

Investigators say results of an autopsy should tell them more about how the woman died.

“We’re just going to investigate it. The Trumbull County Homicide Task Force is out, we called them out to assist and that’s all we know. That’s all we know,” said Warren Township police chief Ben Harrell.
