Man found dead in cemetery

Emergency personnel responded Sunday to a small cemetery on 190th Rd. east of Limestone Rd. after dispatchers received a call alerting them to the discovery of a body.

Sheriff Robert Craft identified the victim as Joseph Melnyck, 29, of Hillsboro.

“Somebody else had stopped at the cemetery,” Craft said. “They had seen the car there earlier in the day. They were walking around looking at some old headstones when they discovered him.”

Craft said the case is under investigation, but there were no indications of foul play.
