OBERLIN, Ohio (AP) — Investigators from a northeast Ohio coroner's office and sheriff's department say a man's body was discovered at a landfill in Lorain County.

County Coroner Stephen Evans says his office received a call around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday that the body of a young, white male had been found at Lorain County Landfill. That's in Oberlin, about 35 miles west of Cleveland.

Evans said no other details were immediately available.

Evans said his office would work to identify the man and would perform an autopsy to determine how he died.
