Sandusky Register Staff • Aug 27, 2014 at 2:38 PM

Police are investigating a suspicious death that occurred early Wednesday morning in a Fremont home.

Fremont police were called to 140 Morrison St. just before 2 a.m., after they received call about a body found in the home, Fremont police stated in a release.

A person who sometimes lives in the home found the body, Fremont police Chief Tim Wiersma said. Police called detectives, paramedics, the Sandusky County coroner and Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents to the scene.

The adult victim's identity remains unknown, and police said they could not determine if it was a man or a woman. The body is not decomposed.

Police would not offer details on the suspected cause of death. A neighbor said a man lived in the home, but police would not confirm this. 

The Sandusky County coroner has sent the body to the Lucas County coroner's office for an autopsy. Wiersma said results are expected back Thursday.   

Neighbors said there were frequently people seen coming and going from the home.

Anyone with information regarding the death is encouraged to call Fremont police at 419-332-6464.
