Dead body found in a creek

NEW KNOXVILLE — Auglaize County officials are investigating the death of a male found Wednesday around 1:15 p.m. in a creek in a heavily wooded area near the end of Industrial Park Drive in New Knoxville.

A person walking in the area noticed the vehicle and body and informed officials.

The body has not been identified. Preliminary investigation does not point to any foul play. The body has been transported to the Lucas County Coroner’s office for an autopsy.

It is believed the victim is that of a man from Indiana who was reported missing in September and had a history of suicide attempts and mental distress. This male’s last known location was in the Auglaize-Mercer County area.
