GREENWICH — A Greenwich man was found dead Saturday morning, the apparent victim of a train accident.

According to Greenwich Police Chief Steve Dorsey, a CSX train engineer discovered the body across the tracks about 8 a.m.

The victim is Zachary Magill, 24, of 95 Kniffin St.

Dorsey said Magill was last seen walking home from a local bar about 3:15 a.m.

His body was found behind the Versitech building on the north end of the village, where the railroad tracks divide, next to a power utility site, near Pierce and Kniffin streets, not far from Magill's residence, the chief said.

Huron County Coroner Dr. Jeffrey Harwood has sent the body for an autopsy and toxicology tests.

Dorsey said more information will be released as it becomes available.
