MT. WASHINGTON, OH (FOX19) -- Police have identified the person who was found dead behind a house Friday afternoon.

At 4:00pm, Cincinnati police were called to the 2300 block of Salvador Street  to investigate a report that a person was shot. Officials say they found 47-year-old Alan Farringer behind the home dead.

Homicide Units have arrested 75-year-old William Stringer with Tampering with Evidence and Abuse of a Corpse. A grave was  already dug near the sidewalk  at his home.

Neighbors tell FOX19 that there are many children in the area  and the thought of a grave and body being found on their street is frightening. 

Cincinnati Police continue to investigate the incident.

Stringer is expected to appear in court on Monday morning.
