The Lorain County Coroner will perform an autopsy today on Cory Barron. The 22-year-old from Fremont was last seen during the Jason Aldean concert at Progressive Field on Friday night. He had not been seen or heard from since. Barron was reported missing by family members early Saturday afternoon. A worker found the body after a load of trash was dumped from a truck Tuesday afternoon at Republic Services landfill on Oberlin Elyria Road. Investigators say the truck had been on a Cleveland route, including Progressive Field. Cleveland Police have confirmed the body was taken there after being collected from a dumpster in Progressive Field. Police are exploring a strong possibility that Barron may have fallen down a garbage chute at the stadium into a dumpster. Late Tuesday afternoon, Cleveland Police returned to Progressive Field to continue investigating.

The U.N. describes the level of human loss and destruction in Gaza as "immense."  Civilians are trying to cope with daily life during a brutal conflict. Two weeks into war, and Gaza City carries on, a nearby blast and life goes on. Rubble is routine now, the landscape changes daily. Several floors of  an apartment building collapsed after an Israeli airstrike on Monday night, killing at least 11. One building, which 200 people once called home, was hit Monday afternoon. No deaths or injuries because someone got a phone call. Gazans take the long view. Every generation has seen war, and wars, going back 66 years. A stone throw away from Shaja'ia, the scene of some of the most intense bombardment and street fighting, Abu Ihab remembers all those wars and at 75 he's had enough. "It's better to die than live in this big prison," he said. "This is no life." The fighting has been going on in Shaja'ia for four days now. Most of the civilians have left. All that remains are fighters.
