The Richland County Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit is investigating the death of a young man whose dead body was found around 9:30 a.m. Saturday near 960 Hull Road in Mansfield.

A man driving south on Hull Road saw what he thought was a body or mannequin laying by a power pole and turned his car around, saw it was a mans's body and called 9-1-1.

Sheriff's deputies, Madison Township EMS personnel and Richland County Coroner's Office personnel responded to the scene. A sheriff's reports states EMS personnel said the victim showed no signs of life and later the coroner's office advised the body had no rigor mortis.

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 report says the woman had a single visitor during her time in jail, a man listed as her boyfriend who also was incarcerated at the jail and both the man and woman had active warrants out for their arrest.

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