Walkers in the park discovered the body at around 7:45 a.m. this morning. The body is that of a white woman, who looks to be between 30-50 years old.  Investigators tell Fox 8 that the woman has three tattoos. The first tattoo is a heart and a rose, located on her right shoulder. The second one is an orange sunflower on her right ankle, and the third is a set of initials on her left ankle. The letters are either “JKS” or “JHS”.

Officials are treating this as a homicide and are asking anyone with a missing loved one, or anyone that has any information about this case, to call the Bureau of Criminal Investigation at 855-BCI-OHIO or the Massillon police.
