Cops: Body of a Slain Woman Hanging from a Fence Was Mistaken for Halloween Decoration
The body of slain Ohio woman hanging from a fence was mistaken for a Halloween decoration, police said.
An Ohio woman was brutally beaten and her body was hanged from a fence, where it was initially mistaken for a Halloween decoration, authorities said.
Police in Chillicothe announced Wednesday they had arrested Donnie Cochenour, 27, on a murder charge based on information from an informant, the Dayton Daily News reported.
Rebecca Cade's body was found hanging by a sleeve from a fence by contractors who had first thought it was a spooky display for the upcoming holiday.
The woman’s cause of death was multiple blows to the head, cops said. She was 31.
Cochenour is being held on $1 million bail, police said.
Since last year, four other women have been found dead in the area and police say the victims were connected through heroin use and prostitution.
Police did not link Cochenour to the previous homicides. It was not known whether he had an attorney.
