In the last couple weeks, I've been deluged by new, significant tips. So many, that I had to reorganize my entire stash of notes and documents this week to make the workload more manageable. Readers have submitted tips on a couple new suspects that are particularly interesting. As always, I've passed along the most promising tips to Bay Village police. As soon as I find a way to talk about these stories without compromising the identities of the new uncharged suspects, I will.
In the meantime, I am researching a new angle. You see, Amy was not the only young girl whose body turned up in the vicinity of Ashland County in the 80's. She was actually the fourth. I'm investigating a possible connection to these girls at the moment and sometime in April, I'll publish a five-part story over the course of an entire week devoted to these other girls. It's the story of a man named Robert Buell, his roommate Ralph Ross Jr., and a new series of abductions currently taking place in southern Ohio.

This is why I don't sleep at night.
An anonymous source passed along a packet of pictures to me yesterday of the interior and exterior of an abandoned house that once sat back in the woods on TR 500, near the site where Amy's body was discovered. These pics were taken a couple weeks after Amy was found. By that time, the FBI had already dusted for prints and extracted sections of the walls and floor for forensic testing.
He told me this is where Amy was murdered. And, at first glance, I believed him. But, this is not true. The blood is NOT Amy's. It may actually have been left behind by hunters who gutted a deer in the house, according to law enforcement officials.
Because of the location of the abandoned house, however, I am interested in any further info people may have about this place. Who owned it? Who cleaned deer there, etc.
