Authorities have identified a body that was found in the woods near an Eastlake community center Wednesday morning as that of 30-year-old Ronald Sekston.

Authorities haven't released a cause of death.

Micheal Slone said he was walking his dog, Nick, near the woods just feet from the community center when they came across the body. Slone said he noticed it where Nick was sniffing.

The body was discovered near the 600 block of E. 349th Street around 9:00 a.m., according to police.

"It's a suspicious death because of the age," Eastlake's Police Chief Larry Riek said.

Police are in the early stages of the investigation. Officers said with the help of the coroner, they will investigate every possible cause of death.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call police at 440-951-1400.
