Ohioan: Craigslist Jobseeker Hid After Being Shot

Caldwell, OH (AP) - An Ohio woman says a man showed up at her
home covered in blood after being shot and told her he hid in the
woods until dark and then went to her farmhouse because it was the
first well-lighted house he saw.

Rose Schockling has a farmhouse on a hill in the tiny village of Fulda in rural southeastern Ohio.

The man told Schockling he answered a Craigslist job ad and was
told he'd be erecting fences for a cattle farm.

Authorities investigating the wounding of that man and the death
of another have charged a 16-year-old boy with attempted murder.
Another suspect is in custody.

Schockling says the man was lucky he went the way he did because
there were no houses for more than 2 miles in the other direction.

Sheriff: Florida Man Seeking Job Killed in Ohio

Caldwell, OH (AP) - A sheriff says a jobseeker from Florida
has been found dead and another from South Carolina has been shot
after they responded to a Craigslist ad for a job on an Ohio cattle
farm.

Noble County Sheriff Stephen Hannum said Thursday two men were
taken into custody after cadaver dogs found the body of the Florida
man this week in a shallow grave in a remote area.

He says the search was undertaken after the South Carolina man
escaped from the area Nov. 6 and notified police, who then found a
grave they believe had been dug for him.

He says the two men had responded to a bogus listing for a job
as cattle caretaker at a 688-acre farm. He suspects robbery was the
motive.

The men's names haven't been released.
