Police: Body of 28-year-old man found in basement of home on Columbus' south side


COLUMBUS, Ohio — Police say the body of a man who had been reported missing by his family was found in the basement of a home on Columbus' south side.

The Columbus Dispatch reports police were called around 2:40 p.m. Sunday by a man who told officers he found his son dead at a home on South Champion Avenue.

Sgt. David Sicilian identified the man as 28-year-old Dametrious Edwards Sunday night. Edwards was last seen by his family on Thursday.

WBNS-TV reports police executed a search warrant to gather evidence from the property. They are treating the death as a homicide.

Sicilian says the Franklin County coroner will determine the cause of Edwards' death.

No arrests have been made at this time.
