LORAIN, Ohio - The body of a Bowling Green State University student who disappeared after a Cleveland concert was found today in a Lorain County landfill.

Cory Gene Barron, 22, of Fremont was last seen around 9:30 p.m. Friday at Progressive Field, where he went to hear country music singer Jason Aldean.

His body was found around 1 p.m. today in New Russia Township at a landfill owned by Republic Services, according to Capt. Jim Drozdowski of the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office. The site is roughly 30 miles west of the Cleveland Indians stadium.

Republic Services reported the body after one of its trucks dropped refuse at the landfill, said Captain Drozdowski. That truck’s route included the area around the stadium, he said.

There were no obvious signs of trauma to the body. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

Mr. Barron was a senior communications major at BGSU.
