COLUMBUS, Ohio – Columbus homicide detectives have identified a woman whose body was being wheeled along a Northeast Side alley early yesterday morning but they have not yet named a suspect in the death of Amber Henry.

At 5:36 a.m. Wednesday, patrol officers were called to the area of 851 Camden Avenue to check out a report of a man pushing an unresponsive woman in a bin down the alley toward the rear of a vacant home at that address, detectives said.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of death has not been determined.

She was later identified as Henry, 35, and the circumstances surrounding her death appeared suspicious, police said.

The investigation is being processed as a possible homicide pending determination by the Franklin County Coroner.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Columbus Police Homicide Unit at 614-645-4730 or Crime Stoppers at 614-645-TIPS.
