At about 8:50 am today, the Copley Police Dispatch Center received a call reporting a body lying adjacent to the roadway in the 2100 block of Wright Road. Copley Police officers arrived on the scene and discovered a deceased adult Hispanic male who had been bound and gagged. The male was lying close to the edge of the roadway and appeared to have been dumped there sometime overnight.
Copley Police learned that the Akron Police Department had discovered two dead adult males under similar circumstances in that city not far from the location of the body in Copley.
Copley and Akron Police officers commenced a joint investigation and are pursuing leads.
Police believe this was an isolated incident and that the public at large was not in any danger. We do not believe that the public should have any concern for their safety at this time.
We will make additional information known as soon as it becomes available.
