Body found in wooded area in Salem identified

SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – Salem police and the Columbiana County Coroner have identified the body found Sunday in a wooded area as Randy W. Llewellyn Sr., 61, of Salem.

Salem Police Det. Dave Talbert said Llewellyn had a medical condition, and it is believed he had a massive heart attack after being dropped off in that area Friday for his normal walk back to his apartment on Continental Drive.

A neighbor called police Sunday morning because she had not seen Llewellyn since Friday. When he was not found inside his apartment, a search began. He was found a short time later by a family member and friend.

His body was found in a wooded area off Bentley Avenue, near Continental Drive.
