Chillicothe, Ohio

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (WTNH) – On Tuesday morning, construction workers in Chillicothe, Ohio thought they saw a gruesome “zombie” Halloween decoration hanging from a fence. They ignored it and kept on working.  Others who walked by that morning thought the same thing, until someone finally took a closer look.  It was a human body.

Police identified the woman as Rebecca Cade, 31, of Chillicothe.  They say she died from blunt force trauma to the head and neck.  a bloody rock was found nearby and is believed to be the murder weapon.

Police have arrested Donnie Cochenour Jr, 27.  They say he has confessed and is locked up on $2 million dollars bond.  There has been a string of women killed in the area, but police say they don’t think the cases are related.
