Coroner's investigator Bob Ball said the victim has been identified as 29-year-old Michael Mitchell of Cardington.

An Ohio Direction card was found in the rear pocket of Mitchel's pants and belonged to a woman incarcerated at the Richland County Jail.

The Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation was contacted and given the case due to the suspicious circumstances.
