State police in Somerset are investigating the death of an Akron, Ohio, man whose body was discovered early Tuesday near a drainage pond off the berm of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Somerset Township.

Trooper Ted Goins said the Antwan Dash, 33, of Akron, died of a gunshot wound to the head. Police said his car was found nearby.

“The manner of death is pending further investigation. No further details will be released at this time because of the ongoing investigation,” the trooper said.

Goins said investigators believe Dash died between 2:38 and 6:58 a.m.

His body was found close to a drainage ditch off the eastbound lane's south berm near mile marker 108. Someone spotted the body at about 7 a.m., according to reports.

The location is approximately two miles west of the Somerset Interchange of the turnpike.

Coroner Wallace Miller is assisting with the investigation.
