(Stow) – Police have arrested a suspect in the murder of 21-year-old Michelle Johnson, whose body was found in a shed behind her home on Maplepark Road in Stow over the weekend.

Stow Police say the suspect is Roxanne Lee Buck, who is said to be Johnson’s roommate.

Johnson’s body was found Saturday evening in the shed, covered with a blanket. A Stow police officer had been called to Johnson’s home after her mother called police to say she had not heard from her daughter in two days.

The Summit County Medical Examiner says Johnson died of sharp force injuries to the neck. Stow Police Chief Louis Dirker earlier called Johnson’s murder “a crime of passion.”

A fund has been set up to cover Johnson's funeral expenses.
