Definitely sounds like a dump job to me.
As for contacting BCI, the sheriff's office will conduct the investigation, but hey will most likely use BCI's help in identifying the woman.

The person who did this was smart enough to just barely go into Pickaway Co. to dump her, leaving a much smaller and less experienced homicide detective on the case than would be in Franklin Co. My bet is theyre from Cols.

Pickaway County has the people capable of doing the investigation, BCI and I is called in to do the Forensic portion of the investigation and to assist in the investigation. Pickaway County Sheriff, along with just about every County in Ohio, doesn't have a crime lab to do the investigation. Even the big cities use BCI and I when needed, as BCI agents are specialists in these type of investigations. I have great respect for BCI, you never really hear about them, but there would be alot of unsolved crimes without them, and they don't take the credit for the arrest and prosecution of these investigations. As far as commenting about this womans lifestyle and such, leave her alone, no one knows yet what type of life she lived, besides that everyone deserves justice.

Even Columbus PD and Franklin County Sheriff use BCI. It's the state ran crime lab set up to be used by all law enforcment agencies. They do the forensics portion not the on the streets crime solving/interviewing etc

Again, is this the work of a serial killer? This is the third body of a woman found dead in or near Franklin County in the last several weeks. Law officials have a duty to keep the public informed.

Yes it is and they have all been right in that general vicinity....the first two were found in Franklin county but only a mile or so north of the county line.

No other bodies have been found this far south.
Last few were working crack addicts on westside.
What is even more scary to the uninformed is that the HUGE number of missing women that have never been found and won't ever be found that have rotted in Central Ohio fields and woods or have been placed in dumpsters with their eternal resting place being the SWACO landfill on 655 near Grove City. It's a harsh reality of the life of drug addicted women on the streets of Columbus Ohio.

Umm not all women who are murdered are drug-addicts. It is pretty ignorant of a "retired deputy" to make assumptions like that.

The woman's identity is unknown. How anyone can suggest that she is a drug addict and prostitute at this point is wild conjecture.

Here's a 2007 story on the bodies of murdered women found in rural southern Franklin County:

Ludlow your link proves that most of these women worked the streets and put themselves in extremely vulnerable situations.
I'm guessing the current body will be identified and linked to hooking or drug addiction.
Prostitution is a very dangerous job.

Not only is it wild conjecture, but purely ignorant. Should expect more from a "retired deputy". But then again, if he is from Chillicothe, you look at Columbus and the surrounding area with fear and a lot of preconceived notions.

Exactly. Thank God this ***** is "retired". If he was even a "deputy" in the first place, it must have been a Deputy of Ignorance. Now that is a truly deserving title.

Randy Ludlow and Ted Decker and others at the Dispatch need to get out more. There have been dozens of missing women all over central Ohio that are not being looked for by any law enforcment agency. Having worked and seen the shear numbers of the women that come into the jails and who are on the streets that are addicted (99.9%) of all street prostitutes are addicts. We are seeing second generation street prostitutes now.
The system in Central Ohio has NEVER been treatment oriented for any drug addicts. The general public is not treatment oriented and we could greatly reduce the robberies,burglaries and even murders if the system spent more on treatment then on jail and even probation.
If I am wrong about this body being that of a female with drug issues and being involved in a other then "good life" I will apologize but if I am right I challenge Randy Ludlow (who I respect) to get out and dig deeper into the pbolems in the black community that are killing the youth of that community on a daily basis be it by guns or drugs.
All the killing and dying (drugs) may not be stopped but it can be slowed way down if things are looked at from a reality point of view not a media looking for a story or a politicians view of lock'em up and offer no treatment.
It hasn't worked so far and never will.

Let me tell you this I live in this part of town and have lived here for 34yrs. That spot is a well known area where truckers and Prostitutes constant;y meet and do business or traffic drugs...I unfortunately knew people who used to travel there at night drive on the road right behind the rest area and park on top of the hill right behind the pull-off. You can not be seen from 23 because the trees block the line of sight. wait until a truck or hoever they are going to meet pull into that lot and walk down the hill trough the trees and brush!! do thier busineess and leave the same way without a trace. This has been going on for years!!! I drive by there everyday to and from work. It is not uncommon to see cars and trucks sitting there doing who knows what. I thought we still had all of the hidden cameras up from the south side snipper incident. Look at them. they are still there, I see them everyday drive to work!!!!! they could see every mile of 23, high street, 270, grove city, and the entire south side

It seems as though the highway workers would have called the highway patrol. Give the case to real investigators. Everybody knows that Radcliff is bush league investigations at best.
