ANDERSON – The Madison County Coroner’s Office says a body found last week is that of an Ohio man.
A young girl stumbled across the body Wednesday in a rural area on Anderson’s northwest side. Her father called police the next day after seeing the remains himself.
The body was that of Anthony Dewayne Brown, 34, Lima, Ohio. The autopsy showed Brown died from a single gunshot wound to the head.
The coroner estimated that Brown had been there for three to five days. Cold weather made determining the time of death challenging.
Police are investigating Brown’s death as a homicide.
