    EATON — The skeletal remains of a man found in July 2008 on an abandoned property near West Alexandria are those of a registered sex offender from Dayton, the Preble County Sheriff’s Office reported Tuesday, Feb. 2.

    Simpson said someone found the remains July 18, 2008, inside a collapsed barn at 7016 Lexington Salem Road. He said the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office identified the man using a national database and DNA taken from his remains.

    The victim is a white male who was 54 at the time his remains were found. The victim was a resident of Dayton after moving from Broward County, Fla., and was a registered sex offender.

    Deputies are now moving forward with their investigation. At this point, the case will remain a homicide investigation.
