MASSILLON -- Investigators are at the scene of a Massillon house, where a body was found buried in a yard.

The body was buried in the back yard of a home on 8th Street SW.

Stark County Coroner Anthony Bertin said the body is inside a large plastic container with wheels. The container was buried about six feet deep.

"We believe that it may contain some concrete," Bertin added.

The container was loaded into a truck to be opened at the county morgue.

Bertin said he believes the container has been there for about a year. While he couldn't say what led investigators to the home, he did say they may know who the victim is. He did not say if there are any suspects.

Cadaver dogs were deployed at the home Thursday afternoon. Bertin says an anonymous source tipped investigators to the yard. Bertin would not say if the home is occupied.
