The New Boston Police Department at the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are in the process of trying to determine the cause of death after the discovery of a body at Buckeye Towers in New Boston.
Thursday afternoon, word began to spread throughout the neighborhood, which is the 3900 block of Rhodes Avenue, that something was up. As police cruisers began to arrive on the scene, people were becoming curious and that curiosity began to grow when the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation crime scene mobile crime lab vehicle arrived.
When the Daily Times arrived, several vehicles from law enforcement agencies were at the scene as well as the mobile crime lab from BCI.
“We have a deceased person and we’ll be trying to determine how they became deceased,” New Boston Police Captain Steve Goins told the Times. We don’t know yet.”
Goins said the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation was called to the scene, and around 3:15 p.m. Thursday was seen outside the apartment complex.
“There’s some things that I have seen that I’m concerned with,” Goins said. “We’re getting a search warrant right now and they’re going to be going into the apartment to see what they can find out.”
No other information as to whether the body was that of a male or a female was available and no details were given as to why it had become a crime scene.
