One Year Since Katelyn Markham’s Remains Discovered
By Mike Perleberg
(Cedar Grove, Ind.) – There have been no arrests or solid leads in the year since the remains of Katelyn Markham were found in Franklin County.
The 21-year-old Fairfield woman disappeared without a trace on August 14, 2011, touching off a search that ended a year ago Monday when her body was discovered near Big Cedar Road in Cedar Grove. A was man searching for scrap metal along the road and nearby Big Cedar Creek when he came across the decomposed, skeletal remains.
Markham’s family says they’re still hurting, with no justice or even a cause of death to help find closure.
Last August, Franklin County Coroner Wanda Lee – with the help of specialists and extensive study of the remains – determined Markham’s manner of death was homicide.
The Indiana State Police and the Fairfield, Ohio Police continue working jointly in their investigation into Markham’s death.
