A Canton man has been arrested for allegedly murdering a missing man.
Canton Police executed a search warrant Friday night at 36 year-old Lance Levi Rankin's home on Worley Street after receiving a tip according to NewChannel 5. While searching the home, police found the missing man's body. His identity is being withheld until his family is notified.
Officers told the TV station they saw Rankin driving northbound on I-77 and attempted to stop him. The Ohio State Highway patrol came in to help by laying down road spikes. Rankin tried to swerve out of the way of the spikes and crashed into a parked police cruiser.
Police say Rankin suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital where he remains in custody.
The investigation is still ongoing.
