Toledo Police detectives launched an investigation after a badly decomposed body was found in a North Toledo garage.

The body, found at 4:12 p.m. on Wednesday, was so decomposed, officials did not immediately know the man's race or approximate age, said Toledo police Sgt. Joe Heffernan. The death is considered suspicious.

The garage was abandoned and the remains were found by a previous resident of the property at 2713 Buckeye St.

Dr. Maneesha Pandey, who performed an autopsy today on the John Doe, was not immediately available for comment.

Police ask that anyone with information call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
