Mummified Corpse Found Hanging In Abandoned Ohio Home

(Dayton, OH) -- Authorities in southwestern Ohio now know the identity of a mummified corpse that was found by a 12-year-old boy over the weekend. The child made the frightening discovery when he looked inside a closet in an abandoned home. Cops say the body of 53-year-old Edward Brunton had a belt around the neck, and that Brunton likely killed himself in the dilapidated Dayton home almost five years ago. Authorities had to use personal ID documents and a physical description from Brunton's brother to positively identify the body.
