Body found in Dayton likely OD victim, police say

The decomposed body of a man found in the 3600 block of Germantown Street on Thursday afternoon is not being investigated as a homicide, police said.

It appears that the man died of a drug overdose, and the body had been in the location for a long time, officers said.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s office, which removed the body, has not released the man’s identity.

A mowing crew discovered the body in the area, near a broadcast tower used by WHIO. WHIO does not own the property where the body was found.
