Comments & ID Thoughts

I live in a suburb of Dayton, Ohio, and this spider was hanging in my shed last Saturday. He was munching on what appeared to be a wood roach. It was dangling the entire time I watched it, so I never observed it walk or move. I initially thought it was a parson spider since I'd seen one in the house a week prior, but its markings are different. This one has very distinct geometric shapes on its back and I would love to know what it is. If anyone could help in identifying this little guy, I would greatly appreciate it
