BUCYRUS, Ohio (WCMH) – The Bucyrus Police Department have arrested a man and released details in connection with a person who was found dead early Monday morning after reports of a fight.
Police have identified the victim as 46-year-old Sean Cassaro, who was found laying face-down in the driveway of a home on the 500 block of Tiffin Street in Bucyrus. Cassaro was pronounced dead at the scene and the cause of the death was unknown at that time.
