Hudson John Doe 2019

On August 16, 2019 excavators unearthed a pine box on a real estate development site on Rosewood trail in Hudson, Summit County, Ohio. The box contained partially fossilized, skeletal human remains. Examination by Mercyhurst University indicated the remains belong to a white male, 40-70 years old, and that he had been buried for at least 50 to 75 years, perhaps much longer. According to Dr. Lisa Kohler, Summit County Medical Examiner, the area is not a cemetery, but there are reports that people were buried on the property in the mid-1800s.
