COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A report of a suspicious car has led to the discovery of a body in “advanced stages of decomposition,” according to the Columbus Division of Police.
Police were called to the 1500 block of Smith Rd. on a report of a Nissan Sentra with Pennsylvania tags that had been parked for a month and was “producing a foul odor.”

EMS pronounced the victim deceased at 9:08 p.m., and the coroner’s office took possession of the body, which is pending identification.
