Barnesville Police Chief Rocky Sirianni has released the following statement regarding the body found in the village in November: 

"Shortly after 11 p.m. on Nov. 30, 2019, emergency services were dispatched to a village of Barnesville parking lot in the 100 block of East Main Street for a male laying near one of the parking spots.

"When emergency services arrived the male was limited on his responses and was transported to Barnesville Hospital where he later died.

"He appeared to have serious trauma and after collaborating with the deputy coroner, the decision was made to have an autopsy performed on the male.

After reviewing footage from village cameras, nearby businesses, and speaking with witnesses, we have a very good understanding of what took place and who is involved. We are confident that this incident will not go unsolved. We are working with the prosecutor's office and awaiting autopsy results to determine what if any charges will be pursued."
