Allen County Sheriff Sam Crish released information regarding a hunter discovering the body yesterday morning of a missing inmate. The body of 31 year-old Jeremiah Helton was found hanging from a tree by a belt. The hunter was coming out of his tree stand and thought someone was standing there. When he approached the individual, he saw it was a person hanging and notified authorities.
Helton's body was taken to the Lucas County Coroner's Office for an autopsy. Helton was last seen around 8:00 am December 8 in the lobby at the WORTH Center in Lima. He was an inmate performing duties as a trusty, which included cleaning the lobby, when he walked away from the center, Crish said.
