Sheriff: Florida man seeking job killed in Ohio

CALDWELL, Ohio (AP) - A sheriff says a jobseeker 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 said Thursday that two men
had been taken into custody after cadaver dogs found the body of
the Florida man this week in a shallow grave in a remote area.
Hannum says the search was undertaken after the South Carolina
man escaped from the same area on Nov. 6 and police found a grave
they believe had been dug for him.
He says the two victims had responded to a bogus listing for a
job as cattle caretaker at a 688-acre farm. He suspects robbery was
the motive.
Names were not released.
