Clermont County officials found 42-year-old Eugene Woodruff dead inside a tent in a wooded area in Batavia Township between Old SR 74 and SR 32 at about 5 p.m. Feb. 22. A person notified officials after he found the Batavia resident's body in the wooded area when he was looking for his dog, said Clermont County Sheriff A.J. Rodenberg in a news release Tuesday.

On Monday, the Hamilton County Coroner's Office identified the deceased as Woodruff based on past medical records. Woodruff had been reported missing in October 2011.
