Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says his deputies are investigating the suspicious death of a female found in a wooded area off of Brookside Drive.  Lutz says his office received a report at around 4 p.m. Sunday that a missing female was possible dead and in a wooded area on Brookside Drive.  Deputies and a K-9 unit were deployed into that area and found the victim.  Lutz says they do have evidence that the victim is the female that was reported missing on July 25th, but will not release her name until an autopsy is completed and they have confirmation.  Investigators are interviewing family, friends and known acquaintances in the case.  Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office.
