Body believed to be missing man

CHAMPION — The Trumbull County Coroner’s Office said Monday it believes the skeletal remains found Saturday near Educational Parkway are those of Ronald L. Reese Jr., 43, missing since around Thanksgiving of last year.

Reese went missing Nov. 24 from the Champion area. Dental records are needed to confirm the identity, the coroner’s office noted.

The remains were found around 11:30 a.m. Saturday in a wooded area near Kent State University at Trumbull and a short distance from the Trumbull Career and Technical Center by hunters tracking a deer, according to Champion police.

A cause of death has not been de­­­termined.
