Dismembered Body Found Inside Closet Of Franklinton Boarding House

Police say badly decomposing human remains have been found in a Columbus boarding house. The man's death is being investigated as a homicide. A Columbus police spokeswoman says the owner and a maintenance person were at the house for a routine check late Thursday morning when they smelled something odd. The spokeswoman wouldn't comment on the body part or where it was found, saying only that it was human. She had no immediate details on whether anything else suspicious was found. She says one person at the three-bedroom property was taken in for questioning. Police say that the cause and manner of death is unknown and that investigators will know more after an autopsy is completed.
