2 Men Accused Of Dumping Body Of Woman In Franklin County Ditch


Two men are being charged for allegedly dumping a body of a woman after she died at their apartment.

Corey Roberts, 24, and Nicholas McCord, 22, are charged with Abuse of a Corpse.

According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Roberts and McCord dumped the body of 21-year-old Jordyn Hollingsworth of London in a ditch in along Jones Road in Brown Township on July 5.

Investigators say the three were doing heroin at McCord’s apartment on Candlestick Court in Galloway the previous night.

Deputies say that Hollingsworth had difficulty breathing and was unresponsive, but the two men went to bed instead of calling authorities. The next morning, the men awoke and then drove the body to the ditch.

A passerby discovered Hollingsworth’s body and called police. 

Investigators say additional charges may be filed after prosecutors review the evidence and an autopsy is complete.
