TWINSBURG – A member of The O’Jays who’s body was found in Twinsburg has been identified as Frank “Frankie” Little Jr. through DNA and genealogical research. Little’s remains were found in a garbage bag behind a Twinsburg business in 1982 and the original cause of death was undetermined but will now be ruled a homicide.
