Cory Barron found in Oberlin

(Oberlin) - Investigators from the Lorain County Coroner's office and sheriff's department say a man's body was discovered at a landfill.

The remains have been identified as Cory Barron, the man missing since Friday night, when he vanished at the Jason Aldean concert in downtown Cleveland.

Newsradio WTAM 1100 first learned of the discovery of the body early this afternoon, when a truck driver called from the Lorain County Landfill in Oberlin.

The Lorain County coroner later made a positive ID at the scene and notified family members. The coroner reports that Cory had his ID and his concert ticket still in his pockets.

Investigators do not know how he died, or how his body ended up in the trash hauling truck. There is speculation he likely never left Friday night's concert alive. Cory Barron was 22.
