Woman's body found in NE Ohio shed identified

STOW, Ohio (AP) — Authorities have identified the young woman whose body was found hidden under blankets in a backyard shed in northeast Ohio.

The Summit County Medical Examiner's Office says 21-year-old Michelle Johnson of Stow (stoh) was found dead Saturday in the area where she lived. The office says an autopsy showed Johnson suffered sharp force injuries to her neck, and the case is considered a homicide.

Authorities didn't release further details.

Police went to the home after Johnson's mother called them to report that she hadn't heard from her daughter in two days.
