Butler County officials working to identify pedestrian struck and killed Saturday

The Butler County Sheriff’s Office and coroner’s office are seeking help identifying a man struck and killed Saturday morning while he was walking on Ohio 4, south of Keister Road in Madison Twp.

The man walked into the path of a northbound truck at about 2:15 a.m. Saturday, the sheriff’s office said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The White male is described as 30 to 60 years old with brown eyes and brown hair, approximately 5-foot-5, 170 pounds with multiple tattoos, including a heart with the name “Heather,” cougar inside of right forearm, and a cross with “RIP Mary” on the left arm, among others.

He was wearing a necklace with a cylinder type charm with “DAD” inscribed. He was wearing a gray T-shirt with black shorts and New Balance shoes.

The driver of the 2019 Kenworth tanker truck was not injured, according to the sheriff’s office. No charges have been filed against the driver, an official said.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Butler County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Division at 513-785-1213 or Martin Schneider at the Butler County Coroner’s Office at 513-785-5860.

Schneider said the coroner’s office needs assistance identifying a deceased person about two or three times a year. He said the office typically identifies a person by documents in their wallet/purse or through fingerprints that match those in a database.
