By Denise Wilson, Staff Writer
Hamilton Journal News - Hamilton, OH

9:50 PM Saturday, January 14, 2012

FAIRFIELD — Caring, thoughtful, motivated and talented are just some of the words mentioned by friends and family describing Katelyn Markham.

More than 75 family, friends and concerned residents conducted a candlelight vigil Saturday evening, walking from the Fairfield Patterson Place shopping plaza on Patterson Drive to the city’s police and fire department memorial on Pleasant Avenue to encourage people not to forgot Markham. She was last seen Aug. 13 at her Dorshire Drive townhouse, but authorities say there was no evidence of a crime.

FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - Several dozen friends and family of Katelyn Markham braved the chilly temperatures to hold a candle light vigil for the missing woman.

Katelyn was last seen by her boyfriend on Aug. 13, and investigators say there is no evidence of a crime.

The Saturday night vigil is just the latest in a series of events held to bring public attention to Katelyn disappearance and to keep hope alive among her family and friends. Mason Lenus says he expects Katelyn to come home. "The hope is that she will pop up. She's hopefully somewhere in hiatus right now and she'll come up out of nowhere," said Lenus.

Jeff Ruby Adds $25,000 To Reward in Missing Woman Case

Updated: 2/09 8:10 pm

A Cincinnati restaurateur is dramatically increasing the reward money for information leading to clues in the disappearance of missing Fairfield woman Katelyn Markham. Today, Jeff Ruby announced he is adding $25,000 to the reward pot... making the total reward amount $50,000.

Markham vanished from her Fairfield apartment last August. We are just days away from the six month anniversary. Markham was last at her apartment by her fiancee. After she vanished her car was still at her home along with her dog, purse and keys. Her cell phone was gone with the GPS locator turned off.

Despite several searches... some led by friends and even some led by a professional group brought in from Texas, there are still no signs of of the 22-year-old art student. Ruby was involved in a few of the searches and even opened his wallet to feed the volunteers.

Rape suspect may be tied to missing woman investigation

Fairfield police acknowlege reports, decline to comment

UPDATED 5:44 PM EDT Jun 21, 2012

FAIRFIELD -

Katelyn Markham disappeared from her townhome last fall and hasn't been seen since, despite searches by friends, family, police and professional search teams.

Gurpreet Kang, 26, of Hamilton, was arrested in Michigan earlier this month in connection with a reported sexual assault in Oxford last spring.

News 5's Karin Johnson talked with neighbors Wednesday who said Kang lived across the street from Markham at one time. The apartment building owner said Kang's family rented the apartment, but Kang's name was not on the lease. New tenants moved in in June 2011, the owner said.

J4A, thanks for the update. Interesting info.

I can understand why he might be a person Law Enforcement might want to take a closer look at in the Markham case.

It would be nice to have a break in this case.

Man looked at in missing woman case indicted in seperate incident

Man indicted in rape of woman in Oxford

UPDATED 12:35 PM EDT Jul 26, 2012

FAIRFIELD, Oh. - A Butler Co. man mentioned in a missing person case has been indicted in a separate incident.

Gurpreet Kang, who police have said could be connected to the disappearance of Katelyn Markham, has been indicted on one charge of sexual battery involving the assault of a woman in Oxford.

Kang lived and worked at a convenience store directly across from the home of Markham, who disappeared 11 months ago, leading police to investigate whether there was a connection. Police have not speculated recently on any possible connection.

Man indicted for sex crime cleared of connection to missing woman

Posted: 2:51 p.m. Friday, July 27, 2012
By Denise G. Callahan
Staff Writer

The Fairfield police say newly indicted Gurpreet Kang’s connection to the Katelyn Markham disappearance was “tenuous at best” from the beginning and he is not a person of interest in their case.

Kang, 26, of Fairfield, was identified as a possible person of interest in the nearly year-old case of the missing Fairfield woman, after he was arrested in June and charged with sexual battery. A Butler County grand jury indicted him this week for the sex crime that allegedly occurred over a year ago. Fairfield Police Chief Mike Dickey said Kang is not a suspect in the Markham case.

Hi, Piper! I have missed you!

Thank you for the update. I know how closely you followed this case as it unfolded.

I am glad that Katelyn's remains have finally been found. Now her family can bring her home and lay her to rest. Perhaps they will have some type of closure. It must be terrible to have a child missing.

Piper, does it surprise you that her remains were found in Indiana? Is the area close to the state line? I guess I could google it. However, I am too tired to do it now.

For you, my dear friend Piper:

Hi Mama and Ann! I hope you are doing well bath

Ann, it does not suprise me at all that Katelyn was found in Indiana. It's about a 40 minute drive from her condo in Fairfield, OH. Cedar Grove, IN is out in the boonies across the state line. It's right before you get to Brookville Lake, a popular boating and camping site for those of us in this area.

My heart breaks for her family, but at least they can now bring her home. Now if we can just find Lauren Spierer and Paige Johnson. When they announced that remains were found in that area, I immediately thought of Lauren and Katelyn. I am anxious to see what the coroner's results will be. RIP Katelyn afro

Police: Items recovered from area where woman’s body found

Updated: 1:40 p.m. Thursday, April 11, 2013 | Posted: 12:34 p.m. Thursday, April 11, 2013


Several items were taken from an Indiana creek bed where Katelyn Markham’s body was found, but how pertinent they will be to the case remains to be determined.

“It is a dumping ground … there was a lot of junk around,” said Sgt. Noel Houze of the Indiana State Police.

The skeletal remains of Markham, who had been missing since Aug. 14, 2011, from her Fairfield townhouse, were found Sunday morning in Cedar Grove, Ind., by men searching for metal to scrap, Houze said.

He would not comment whether jewelry, clothing or personal items were found with Markham.

“Most of the skeletal remains were there,” Houze said. Cedar Grove is about 30 miles west of Fairfield.

Houze said investigators are working to determine if Markham died where she was found.

~Snipped~

Over the course of nearly two years, thousands of people contributed in the search for the missing 22-year-old woman, through volunteering their efforts on foot, printing fliers, making financial contributions and more.

The founder and director of Texas EquuSearch, Tim Miller, arrived in the Tri-State in September 2011 to organize a massive search for Markham.

Dave Rader, executive director of the Ohio chapter of Texas Equusearch, spoke with Katelyn's father on Wednesday.

"He wasn't doing so well, as you can imagine. His mindset was, he was all over the place, as expected. I think he was relieved, that he now has Katelyn, he knows where she is," said Rader. "Now you just dash the hopes that she's going to walk through that door and give him a big hug and say, 'I screwed up and I'm home, all is forgiven.'

Dayton Daily News - Dayton, Ohio

Police to begin piecing together Markham mystery again




Katelyn Markham


Fairfield - The “Missing Woman” posters that hung in Fairfield business windows Thursday no longer represented the hope that a young Fairfield woman with a bright future who vanished two summers ago would return home safely.

Instead, Fairfield and Indiana State police will begin the process of piecing together what happened to Katelyn Markham after her skeletal remains were found Sunday in Cedar Grove, Ind., about 30 miles west of Fairfield.

Lopez, Steve (CMG-WestPalm)

The skeletal remains of Katelyn Markham were found Sunday, April 7,
in Cedar Grove, Ind., is approximately 30 miles west of Fairfield.



Katelyn Markham disappearance timeline

Aug. 13,2011: John Carter leaves Katelyn Markham’s townhouse at Dorshire Drive

April 2012: Chelsea Johnson, 15, is found dead in a creek bed about a mile from the Dorshire Drive townhouse. Police say there is no connection between the two cases.

July 2012: Police clear Gurpreet Kang, 26, of any involvement in the Markham case. Kang had worked in a gas station near Markham’s residence. He is charged in an unrelated Oxford rape case.

Aug. 2012: Not long after the one-year anniversary of Markham’s disappearance, Joseph Oakley, 19, of Hamilton is found dead very near the same place Johnson was found. Police say there is no connection between any of the cases.

April 7, 2013: Skeletal remains found in Cedar Grove, Ind.

April 10, 2013: Skeletal remains are positively identified as those of Katelyn Markham.

Aug. 14, 2011: Carter receives a photo text message from Markham. It is the last word anyone hears from her. Her cell phone turned off at 12:45 a.m., and Carter received the photo at 12:52 a.m. A missing persons report is filed at 7:59 p.m. that evening. Carter appears on CNN’s “Nancy Grace” twice that month.

Sept. 1, 2011: Texas Equusearch begins looking for Markham.

Piper, yw re the updates!

Thank you for the above Link. Wow! The video is a tear jerker.

Mr. Markham is blessed in that he has the support of the Texas EquuSearch - Ohio group.

It is so wonderful that there is now a Texas EquuSearch group in that area that can conduct searches for missing persons in that area.

In a way, it is an honor to Katelyn Markham. The group was formed as a result of Texas EquuSearch - TX looking for her.

I can understand that it may be a while before the remains are released to Katelyn's family.

When Zachary Pittman's (LA) remains were found scattered in dense woods, it was over 2 months before the remains were released to his mother, Christy. Sadly, they were not able to determine cause of death. The case remains an unsolved homicide.

But . . . at least Christy was able to bury her son in a cemetery among family and she has a place to go visit.

Ann, I certainly agree about the Ohio group coming about because of the search for Katelyn. It is an honor to her and her family will be forever grateful for their help, and what they can do for all the others that are missing loved ones.

Christy waited a very long, agonizing time for her son to be found. Even without answers, she is able to visit his grave now. I think of her often.

Markham clues studied

The discovery of Katelyn Markham's remains in Indiana may provide clues to what happened to her

The discovery of Katelyn Markham’s skeletal remains doesn’t mean her death will be solved quickly, as would be the case in a TV crime drama. | But her skeleton and the place it was found can provide significant clues about how she died and possibly who did it, experts say. | A Brookville, Ind., couple scouring the Big Cedar Creek area for scrap metal stumbled upon Markham’s remains April 7. Pieces of her skeleton were strewn around an area that police called a dump site for junk. Her skull was found in a plastic bag.

And that bag could end up being a key piece of evidence in the newly invigorated investigation, experts say.

Attorney: Katelyn Markham's murder could be work of serial killer

(VIDEO)

CEDAR GROVE, IN (FOX19) - As investigators look for evidence among the remains of Katelyn Markham, one experienced criminal defense attorney has a theory about what happened to the Fairfield woman.

Markham's remains were discovered one week ago along a creek near Cedar Grove, Indiana. Markham had been missing since August of 2011, where she was last seen by her fiance at their Fairfield home.

She became the subject of an intensive search effort by police, firefighters and volunteers.

Attorney Mark Krumbein has years of experience defending murderers, kidnappers and even one man suspected of being a serial killer.

Krumbein says the circumstances surrounding the murder of Katelyn Markham and other young women bear some striking similarities.

FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - In April, the remains of Katelyn Markham were discovered in Cedar Grove, Indiana.

The Fairfield woman had been missing for nearly two years at the time of the discovery.  But now, a monument dedicated to her will make sure people remember her.

Katelyn's father, Dave Markham, says this monument gives people a chance to go and remember her because there's nowhere else to do that right now.

Alongside a rural road in Indiana sits the memorial cross dedicated in memory of Katelyn.  Her remains were found by people looking for scrap metal along a nearby creek.

Katelyn Markham's remains back in Ohio for tests

Jul. 9, 2013 8:55 PM

Katelyn Markham

Written by Janice Morse

The remains of 21-year-old Katelyn Markham, a long-missing Fairfield woman found dead in Indiana three months ago, are now in Hamilton County, undergoing more tests that could provide clues about how she died, authorities said Tuesday.

Sgt. Noel Houze, spokesman for the Indiana State Police, said he didn’t know specifically what types of tests were being done at the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.

The remains had already been examined and tested in Indianapolis, after they were discovered in April. The site where Markham was found, along Big Cedar Creek, in Franklin County, Ind., is about 25 miles away from her Fairfield condominium, where she was last seen alive on Aug. 23, 2011.

New theories come to light in Katelyn Markham death

Posted: 7:00 a.m. Saturday, April 11, 2015

BUTLER COUNTY —

Nearly four years after Katelyn Markham vanished from her Fairfield home and two years after her remains were found in Indiana, no one has been charged in connection with her death.

But plenty have joined the hunt.

Fairfield Police, Indiana State Police and Frank Smith, a local private investigator and retired Butler County Sheriff’s detective, are all looking for answers. Four months ago, Florida private investigator J. Ryan Green joined the hunt after being hired by an anonymous person who has been following via social media.

Green says he has interviewed two people, one of which failed a polygraph test, and they have information about what happened to the 22-year-old art student. But Fairfield detectives failed to act in a timely manner to interrogate the individuals themselves, Green said, and may have missed an opportunity to advance the case.

New twist in Katelyn Markham case

By Lauren Pack
Staff Writer



Katelyn Markham

FAIRFIELD — A press conference will be held tomorrow in connection with the death of Fairfield’s Katelyn Markham whose skeletal remains were found in Indiana in 2013, but whose cause of death remains unknown.

Dave Markham, Katelyn’s father, said an attorney as well as Florida private investigator J. Ryan Green who has been investigating the case will speak during the press conference scheduled for 2 p.m. in Forest Park.

“We want the case moved,” Markham said. “Out of Fairfield.”

~Snipped~

Then on April 7, 2013, skeletal remains were found in a remote wooded area in Cedar Grove, Ind. Within days, confirmation came that the remains were Katelyn’s, and the Franklin County Coroner Wanda Lee ruled her death a homicide. However, the exact cause of death could not be determined.

That is where the investigation seems to have stalled, but an anonymous donor has increase the reward amount by $25,000 for information leading to the arrested and conviction of her killer. The reward has increased to $100,000.
