This Isn’t Halloween

At 8:30 on an October morning, someone saw what looked like a corpse hanging on a chain-link fence in Chillicothe, Ohio. A Halloween decoration, not a problem, the person thought. It was in fact a corpse — and police say she was murdered. There were “obvious injuries,” they say, and identify the cause of death as blunt force trauma. The deaths of four other women in the area in the past year and a half have been under investigation, but while police have arrested a man in the case of the woman on the fence, they say there is no evidence to connect him to the other deaths — or the cases of two missing women. (AC/WCPO Cincinnati) ...Sounds like there might be someone in Chillicothe scarier than a corpse, real or fake.
