Police Identify Woman Found On I-71
Columbus Police have identified the body that led to an hours-long closure of Interstate 71 this week.
Columbus Police on Thursday said the remains are those of 22-year-old Jessica Lynn Nichols.
Travelers on Wednesday reported seeing the body on Interstate 71 north of downtown Columbus. That prompted police to close several miles of northbound I-71 during the morning commute.

It is still unclear how the Columbus woman died. Police are trying to determine whether Nichols died before being hit by a vehicle.
