The Columbus Dispatch reported authorities say that a couple walking their dog in Grandview Heights around 10 a.m. Saturday found the intact but decaying human remains under a clump of trees.
Police said identification was present with the clothing but it is expected to take until today for the coroner's office to examine the body and potentially match dental records.
