Body Identified as Missing Man
Authorities confirm a body found in a local park was a
missing Zanesville man.
Zanesville Police Chief Tony Coury says the body discovered
in January at Chaps Run Park was 32-year-old Justen Titman.
The identity of the body was confirmed through DNA
analysis, but a cause of death has yet to be determined.
“We are anticipating that we can still continue with
our investigation. We still have some leads to follow up on and hopefully we
can get some closure to this investigation, not only for our purposes, but for
the family’s purposes,” said Chief Coury.
Authorities are awaiting a final report regarding
cause of death from the Licking County coroner’s office.
Titman was believed to have gone missing sometime last
summer, but was officially reported missing in October.
