    OH - Rittman - WhtMale (UP 10279), 18-50, Bones Found on Morton Salt Property, Sep'11

    Rittman police have located human remains in an isolated wooded area, acting on a tip from a resident.

    Rittman police say they are still processing the scene, and have launched an investigation.

    No information about the remains are available yet and the investigation is still in its very early stage
    http://www.wkyc.com/news/article/208...found-in-woods
    ______________

    A Rittman resident told newsnet5.com that field is just off of South Main Street along Chippewa Creek.
    The Wayne County Coroner and the Bureau of Criminal identification and Investigation Crime Scene Unit spent Tuesday processing the scene.
    Police have not yet established the identity, gender, or age of the remains, nor have they determined how long they have been at the scene.
    The cause of death also remains under investigation.

    Investigators on the scene have not been able to determine the gender of the badly decomposed body. Thus, there is also no identity or age associated with the remains. The cause of death is still under investigation. http://www.fox8.com/news/wjw-news-hu...,4945261.story

    well, there are 6-7 ohio people missing currently (in the missing forum) however none of them are from this immediate area. That being said, Cleveland is only 40-45 minutes away as there is access to the interstate near Rittman. Here are threads for those missing in Ohio currently:

    Could this be what you are remembering?

    The bones are the second set to be found in the area in the past three years. In September 2008, the bones of an African American woman were found off of a township road in Holmes County. The woman still is unidentified and listed on the FBI's Violent Criminal Apprehension Program website.

    I think I know who you are talking about but can't remember his name. I think he shot people including children. Weren't some of them family?

    Another article from The-Daily-Record:

    Anthropologists find more remains at site of first discovery

    By BOBBY WARREN
    Staff Writer
    RITTMAN -- A team of forensic anthropologists discovered more bones and another tooth Friday at the site where police found human remains nearly two weeks ago.
    Dennis Dirkmaat, chairman of Mercyhurst's Forensics Science Department, led a team of about 18 forensic anthropologists, many graduate students and some advanced undergraduates.

    i'm wondering about Brian Shaffer too, and Tony Luzio, who also disappeared from Columbus. I think Rittman is right off I-71, which goes from Columbus to Cleveland.

    Bone discovery brings hope for closure to families waiting on word

    WOOSTER -- When Illinois resident Maureen O'Donnell Sanchez read about an effort to uncover more human bones in Rittman, one thought raced through her mind: Are the remains from her sister who went missing 30 years ago.
    Sanchez saw The Daily Record story about a team of forensic anthropologists searching a wooded area off of South Main Street in Rittman on Friday.

    this is S. Main street woods near the creek on morton salt property where the remains were allegedly found. As a college student I used to work at PCA which was on the same property as MS (it has since closed) but I know this area well.

    zoomed out view (point A being the actual plant). If you scroll up you will see how close to I-76 this is. Lots of truck traffic in and out of the plant area fwiw

    Rittman is only 46 miles or so from Cleveland, where Amanda Berry is missing from. By this point, though, I imagine Amanda's remains would be skeletal.

    Guess I always get a little twinge of dark hope whenever bodies pop up in Ohio that maybe she's been found......

    In your link, this caught my eye:
    (maybe this is homicide related)


    Dr. Amy Jolliff, the Wayne County coroner who is overseeing the investigation, confirms to Fox 8 News that an initial examination indicated the remains are indeed human, adding they have likely been at that location for more than six months. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation is also at the scene.

    No arrests have yet been made

    they have up no trespassing signs, etc but people go back there... in fact iirc it was a hunter that found the remains... I am not sure if MS allows hunters back there with permission or if this guy was just out there in the woods...

    OH - Rittman - Human Remains, September 2011

    ((I hope I am doing this right.... I have never started a thread here before))

    http://www.fox8.com/news/wjw-news-hu...,4945261.story

    Authorities in Wayne County have started an investigation following the discovery of human remains in the city of Rittman, Fox 8's Stacey Frey reports.

    According to a spokesperson for the Rittman Police Department, a hunter made the discovery Tuesday in an isolated, wooded area on the property of the city's expansive Morton Salt facility.

    Investigators on the scene have not been able to determine the gender of the badly decomposed body. Thus, there is also no identity or age associated with the remains. The cause of death is still under investigation.

    Wayne County Coroner Dr. Amy Jolliff confirms to Fox 8 News that the remains are indeed human, adding that they have almost certainly been at that location for more than six months.

    Wayne County coroner Dr. Amy Joliff confirmed to Fox 8 on Wednesday that the bones are human and that they have been there for more than six months.

    Investigators would not confirm if they found any clothing or other personal articles at the scene.

    "We have to find as much evidence as we can and then try to piece it together and see what we have,'' said Sgt. Robert Shows of the Rittman Police.

    Sgt. Pauley told Fox 8 Wednesday afternoon that they did not even have a complete body.

    first map is the field/creek area on MS property where bones were found

    second map is a zoomed out view of the plant area.

    I used to work at PCA (packaging corporation of america) when in college which is on this same property as MS (has since closed) but I know the area (grew up a few miles away in Sterling, Ohio). There is a lot of truck traffic at this plant and the area has close access to I-76
