The dead body left outside of the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center emergency room yesterday afternoon has been identified.
Demautay L. Howze, 25, was dropped off at approximately 1:19 p.m. and was deceased upon arrival, said university spokesman Dan Hedman in an email.
“The Ohio State University Police Division continues to investigate and anyone with information related to the events is encouraged to contact OSUPD at 614-292-2121,” Hedman said.
An autopsy was performed on the body Wednesday, but details on the cause of death have not been made public.
In an email, Deputy Chief of Police Kimberly Spears-McNatt confirmed Howze was not affiliated with the university.
Howze’s body was found by a male staff member on Tuesday, who called in the account at 1:54 p.m., according to the online OSU Police Division crime log.
