The Morgan County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a body of a male was discovered burning in southeast Ohio.
Deputies responded to the report along County Road 15 in Union Township.
Blackened ground and ash could be seen where the body was discovered by utility workers Thursday morning.
"We went to turn around and we saw a dead body burning," said a 911 caller.
On Friday, the sheriff said that the man was tentatively identified through a fingerprints match.
His identity was not immediately released, because family members had not been notified.
Officials said the Bureau of Criminal Investigation is assisting in the case.
