Body Found
(WOUB) - U-S Route 23 just north of Chillicothe is open again at this hour.

The highway was down to one lane this afternoon between State Routes 1-59 and 207 - while the state highway patrol investigated a body found in a ditch along the side of the highway.

An Ohio Department of Transportation worker mowing the grass along Route 23 discovered the body at about 12:30 this afternoon.

Investigators say the male body is partially decomposed and they are unable to determine the identity at this time.
