February 28, 2013
Tribune Chronicle |

YOUNGSTOWN - Investigators with the Mahoning County Coroner's office have been able to narrow down somewhat the identity of a skull that was found on the East Side earlier this month.

Dr. Joseph Ohr, a foresnic pathologist with the coroner's office, said today that the skull is of a person of mixed ancestry and is a male between 25 and 50 years of age and most likely around 30 to 35 years of age.

Ohr said investigators have found bones each time they have visited the Vaughn Street on the Sharon Line where the skull was first discovered by a dog on Feb. 16. He said all the bones appear to be from the same person and are human bones.

Investigators have even combed through dog feces and recovered bone chips because the dogs are gnawing on the bones that have been recovered, Ohr said.
