COSHOCTON -- A Kimbolton man's concern about the well-being of a friend proved to be more than well founded after the friend's death was ruled a homicide by the Coshocton County Coroner.
David M. Milich, 49, of 72185 Bates Road, was found Tuesday morning (Nov. 20) by a friend who subsequently contacted the Guernsey County Sheriff's Office to report Milich was unresponsive.
Deputies responded to the call, but, on arriving in the vicinity, determined the cabin was across the line in Coshocton County even though a portion of the driveway is in Guernsey County, in Knox Township.
According to a press statement issued by the Coshocton County Sheriff's Office, Milich's death was ruled the result of a homicide by Coshocton County Coroner Dr. Robert Gwinn.
Gwinn discovered wounds from the gunfire of a small-caliber weapon.
Authorities believe Milich had been deceased for several days at the time his body was discovered and removed from the scene.
According to the press statement, authorities had not determined whether anything was missing from the cabin or what may have been a motive for the crime.
The two sheriff's offices and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are working jointly on the case.
