Jason Antonio Gonzales (1987 — 2021)

STRYKER — State and local authorities have launched an investigation into the death of Jason Antonio Gonzales.

Gonzales, 34, of Stryker, was found deceased Tuesday morning when Williams County’s 911 Call Center dispatched an ambulance for an “unknown emergency” to 203 Elm St. at 7:34 a.m.

“The body appears to have been dumped off,” Stryker Police Chief Steve Schlosser said in a phone interview Wednesday afternoon. “There were tire tracks through a private residence, through their yard.”

Schlosser declined to comment on the possible cause of death but said Gonzales’ remains were taken to the Lucas County Coroner’s Office for autopsy.

“The investigation remains open and we are being assisted by the Williams County Sheriff’s Office, the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Williams County Prosecutor’s Office,” he said.

Records indicate Gonzales had a criminal history including a Defiance County Court of Common Pleas felony conviction for illegal assembly to manufacture drugs in November 2014 and a Henry County Court of Common Pleas felony conviction for two counts of aggravated drug trafficking in June 2018.

No additional infomation on the incident was available from Schlosser on Friday.
