Ohio authorities have ‘person of interest’ in unsolved death


HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — Investigators in southwest Ohio say they have a “person of interest” in the unsolved homicide death of a young woman who disappeared from her home more than five years ago.

However, Butler County sheriff’s Maj. Mike Craft says authorities don’t have enough evidence to take the case to a grand jury. They are appealing for the public’s help to resolve the Katelyn (KAYT’-lin) Markham case.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News (http://bit.ly/2fjY16f ) reports Craft didn’t release any information about the person of interest.

Skeletal remains identified as Markham’s were found in 2013 in a wooded area in Cedar Grove, Indiana, about 20 miles west of her home in Fairfield. The 21-year-old art student had vanished Aug. 13, 2011.

A coroner ruled the death a homicide, but the cause hasn’t been determined.
