GREENVILLE — Authorities say a man suspected of holding his girlfriend against her will has been arrested in Ohio with a body believed to be his girlfriend’s in the trunk of his car.

Elyria police in northeast Ohio say the Darke County Sheriff’s Department near Greenville received a call Wednesday to investigate a report about an impaired driver. Elyria police Capt. Christopher Costantino says deputies found a car in a ditch with a man wearing only underwear and socks outside the car.

Investigators determined he was the boyfriend suspected of taking Linnea Satterfield from her Elyria home against her will and took him into custody. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had been formally charged.

Elyria police say they found blood Monday at Satterfield’s home after her sister reported her missing.
