Nick McWilliams reporting – The Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Office is working to identify a female found deceased in Goshen Township early Tuesday morning.

At 6:37 a.m., a caller was on their way to work and found a body on White Bridge Road off of State Route 416. The body was reportedly partially wrapped in plastic.

Deputies, detectives, and both the New Philadelphia and Dover Fire Departments responded, along with the Tuscarawas County Coroner’s Office.

Few details are available, outside of the body being a heavyset female, possibly bi-racial or black, with dark, curly hair pulled in a ponytail with a noticeable surgical scar.

If anyone knows of someone who possibly fits the description, they are urged to call the sheriff’s office at (330) 339-2000.

The cause and manner of death are under investigation, but foul play is suspected.
