Body found in freezer near governor candidate’s campaign headquarters

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Connie Pillich’s campaign headquarters is about 50 yards away from Molly Malone’s Irish Pub where the body of a 20-year-old man was found in the freezer.

Pillich’s campaign is based at the Hamilton County Democratic Party office on Webbland Place, which is across a parking lot from the pub where the body of Brandon Chandler was found in a walk-in freezer by a fellow employee on Monday morning.
