Fla. Craigslist jobseeker found dead in Ohio grave

Sheriff: Fla. man lured to Ohio by Craigslist job ad found dead in shallow grave, SC man shot By The Associated Press

CALDWELL, Ohio (AP) ' A sheriff says a man from Florida has been killed and another from South Carolina has been shot after they responded to a Craigslist ad for a job on an Ohio cattle farm.

Noble County Sheriff Stephen Hannum indicated in an email Friday that he wasn't ready to identify the pair of suspects. The Akron Beacon Journal reported the suspects were an Akron man and an area high school boy.

In a follow-up, Hannum says a judge had issued a gag order, so no further information would be released.

The sheriff says robbery seemed to be the motive.

The Florida man's body was found this week in a remote area about 80 miles east of Columbus.

Hannum says the South Carolina jobseeker who responded to the same ad was shot but escaped.
