CHILLICOTHE, Ohio — Investigators in Ohio have identified a woman whose body was found hanging from a fence on Tuesday. Officials said 31-year-old Rebecca Cade got into a fight with an attacker, ran into a lot surrounded by a fence, and got stuck on the fence trying to escape.
Neighbors thought the woman’s body was a Halloween decoration, according to WKRC.
“Just put my hands over my face and said, ‘This can’t be happening here, it’s not real and I just didn’t see what I thought I saw,'” Tammy Dixon said.
Construction workers called police when they discovered it was a body.
Donnie Cochenour Jr., 27, is being held on a $2 million bond after he pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in connection with Cade’s death. A bloody rock found near the woman’s body was apparently used in the attack, according to Ross County Prosecutor Matt Schmidt.
