Aug 29, 2012

The severely burned woman found naked with a rope around her neck along a road in eastern Ohio has died. Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says 29-year-old Celeste Fronsman died Tuesday.

The Canton area resident had suffered burns over most of her body. An autopsy is planned. A motorist spotted the woman Sunday northeast of Zanesville, 60 miles from Canton. He told a 911 dispatcher the woman had been raped, beaten and burned. Moaning or crying can be heard in the background of the recorded call. The sheriff says investigators found a crime scene in woods near where the woman was spotted. He says investigators have identified several people of interest in the case.
