Mason tells the officer this took place at a home on Montgomery County Line Road, but he was unable to tell officers the exact address.

The officer asks Mason if the person needs medical attention.

“She’s deceased,” Mason replies.

He identifies the woman as 57-year-old Michelle L. Elliot.

Additional officers arrive and start questioning Mason. The officers ask him why he decided to come to Miamisburg.

Mason said he has been driving “all over the place”, he said he has been living out of his truck and motels.

“I wouldn’t be here voluntarily, but I’ve been so scared since it happened,” he said.
