    Body unnoticed in car trunk
    Missing man had shot himself

    By Jane Prendergast

    Hamilton County Sheriff Simon Leis admitted his deputies - weeks ago - should have opened the trunk of an impounded car in which a man's body was found Monday.

    He said Tuesday that his office will investigate the actions of three employees involved in the case of missing man David Mollberg and of the discovery of his car last month in Anderson Township. Investigators thought Mollberg had committed suicide in the Ohio River when the car was found at a river access area in Anderson Township on March 11, but learned Monday that Mollberg's body was in the trunk.

    The car has been in the sheriff's impound lot since March 11.

    "I can tell you that trunk should've been forced open" by either the deputies on the scene when it was found, or by the detective assigned to the case, Leis said. "I have to admit we made a mistake by not popping that trunk."
