        WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE, Ohio — A pizza delivery driver reported missing was found dead in a parking lot Thursday morning, police said.

        A police officer found the body of Precious Canter, 31, of Washington Court House about 4 a.m. She went out on a delivery from Pizza-N-Motion about midnight and was reported missing after not returning to work, said Police Chief Larry Mongold.

        The death was being investigated as a homicide.

        The resident of the home where Ms. Canter made her last delivery reported hearing suspicious noises, said Capt. Mike Stritenberger. “That person had heard a noise outside that might be scream. He looked out and saw the vehicle leaving at what he described was a high rate of speed.”
