The Mahoning County Coroner's office are investigating the circumstances surrounding a body that was discovered in the backyard of a home on South Duck Creek Road in Berlin Township.

The body, found last night,  belongs to a 57-year-old man that lived in Canfield, according to Mahoning County Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff's Office did not release the name of the man due to a pending investigation into why the body was in the backyard of the house.

At this time, no foul play is suspected but that may change pending the outcome of the autopsy.

This is a developing news story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
