'Very decomposed' body found behind Elm Street building in Over-the-Rhine

CINCINNATI -- Officers discovered a "very decomposed" body behind a building in Over-the-Rhine Tuesday night.

Although they do not believe the death was suspicious, the advanced state of decomposition meant the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office could not immediately identify the body or conclusively determine its race and age.

The body was found in the 1500 block of Elm Street. Anyone with information about the person or their cause of death should contact police or the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.
