LORAIN, OH (WOIO) - A Lorain man has been missing for more than a month and the worst has happened.  Johnathon Fernandez's decomposed body turned up in a field.

The Lorain County coroner has ruled that man's death as homicide. Now, the hunt is on for a killer and a family slowly coming to grips with the decomposed body might be their missing relative.

Johnathon Fernandez's uncle Edwin Fernandez and the rest of his family wait, wait for anyword of what may have happened to the 19 year-old. Their hearts sank Friday morning when they read in the paper a body that's most likely Johnathon's was found almost a month and a half after he went missing.
