Portage County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Mullins' residence on during the early morning hours of 12/20/2014. Mullins’ wife was reporting that she arrived home on the previous evening, Thursday 12/19/2014, at approximately 21:30 hours. When she arrived home she found indications that Joseph had been there but was missing. With the assistance of family friends, Mrs. Mullins attempted to contact Joseph by his cell phone but was unsuccessful. A search of the area did not locate Joseph. During the investigation, blood was found by the detached garage that belonged to Joseph. A blood smear was found on a bedspread in the master bedroom that also returned to Joseph. Nothing in the house appeared to be missing or disturbed. On December 29, 2014, Joseph Mullins' body was found in the warehouse district of downtown Cleveland. His death was determined to be from blunt force trauma.
