Associated Press


Police have found the body of a southwest Ohio woman who went missing last month and say they are investigating her death as a homicide.

Authorities say 25-year-old Nichelle McKnight’s body was discovered Friday near the Stillwater River in the Dayton suburb of Harrison Township.

She went missing in March with her 4-year-old son.

Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said the search continues for the boy, but he is presumed dead.

Biehl says police went to a vacant apartment complex near the river after receiving a tip that McKnight’s boyfriend Antwan Anderson frequented the complex.
