Police seek evidence from slain man s vehicle

LIMA, Ohio Police yesterday were searching a vehicle belonging to a Lima man found shot to death Sept. 23.

The 1988 Jeep Cherokee owned by Timothy J. Ryan, 45, was found abandoned behind a vacant house in the 700 block of South Metcalf Street Thursday afternoon, police said.

A man who had gone to look at the house, which was for rent, noticed the Jeep parked there and called police. He said he had seen the vehicle on a local newscast.

Police believe Mr. Ryan had the vehicle the morning he was killed, although it does not appear he was shot in the vehicle.
