    with "overwhelming physical evidence."
    The badly decomposed body of Austin's

    last Saturday in the reservoir which straddles

    strangled her at their Columbus norne March 1

    body found
    in reservoir
    COLUMBUS, Ohio' (AP) — A
    badly-decomposed body wrapped
    in flowered bed sheets and weighted
    by two truck tire rims
    pulled from Hoover Reservoir
    north of here Saturday.
    The Delaware County Sheriff's
    office said the body would be taken
    to the Hamilton County Morgue in
    Cincinnati for an autospy. They
    said it had been in the reservoir for
    six months to a year.
    "That's the only place in the
    state capable of handling a body in
    that bad a shape." said Sgt.
    William La very, chief deputy of
    the department.
    The body was was discovered
    during a patrol by the Columbus
    Marine and Park Police earlier in
    the day. Although in another county,
    the reservoir is part of the City
    of Columbus water system.
    Warm weather brought the body
    to the surface, Lavery said. He
    said it had been mired in mud under
    about six feet of water in a
    cove 150 yards from shore.
    Authorities were not able to determine
    the sex of the victim.
    Lavery said about the only way to
    obtain identification would be
    through dental record
