Another prostitute got caught robbing her john. They must be sending her body to Montgomery County because they are afraid Franklin County would get her mixed up with a white senior citizen.

Dwight Radcliff/PCSO = Bush League investigation.

Found on a U.S. highway by highway workers, should've called the Highway Patrol. They would've had the case solved with an arrestee headed toward the clink in a week or so.

I respect your right to have an opinion, but it is an uninformed one. Sheriff Radcliff is a top notch sheriff/detective. I don't believe he has any unsolved homicides on his books (he has been sheriff since 1965). Pick any three state trooper investigators and they have not investigated as many violent crimes as Sheriff Radcliff has personally. The Patrol does a lot of things right, but they don't exceed Radcliff's ability.

1Adam12Roger says Dwight Radcliff has no unsolved homicides on his books. Talk about being uninformed, at least two unsolved murders last year in Pickaway County. But when it only appears in the paper once, it is easy to miss. You will never read another story on this one in the Circleville Herald unless it is solved, then it will be headlines.

There was a body (bones) of a young female found many years back near Rt 56 and Rt 159 that has never been identified and hence not solved by Radcliff.
There are lots of times that a street "woman" will Od and the rest of her "party" will dump her body in a remote location. This one was easy to find so likely this will be the case. If a murder they could have turned into any lane drug her a few dozen corn rows out and she would have been nothing but bones by the time the corn was picked.
No one would have ever found her then.
There are DOZENS of missing women in just Columbus alone and because of their backgrounds and history
no one is actively looking for them.
We used to speculate that the SWACO landfill is full of bodies of missing women and so are the cornfields of surrounding counties.
For the record my server says I am in Chillicothe I am not. I was a metro area Deputy and worked for State of Ohio also.

Ya it's obvious someone on the southend of columbus killed her and drove to the first place south of town and dumped her off and drove back. That's what I'd do. I'd say person lives off Parson's somewhere.

I guess the old man that disappeared from his burning house in Madison Township Pickaway County last year may not qualify as a murder.Because a body has not been found. But lets keep it a missing persons case, keep it out of the media, dont look real hard for the body, so it stays a missing person and not a unsolved homicide.
Or how bout the doctor on Winchester Rd. that had a wife that slipped and fell at home and died in 2005. He then remarried and his next wife slipped under the garage door, it closed on her head and she died in 2008. Poor doctor has bad luck.
Or the one where the wife said she was trying to get the gun away from her husband, it went off and struck him in the head, killing him. She was later convicted in Franklin County for trying to kill her boyfriend. She is now in prison on that one, she was never charged with her husbands death which was ruled a homicide.
I could continue but just cause its not in the paper or not on t.v. does not mean it didnt happen, it just means lets keep it quiet so the public thinks we dont have any unsolved murders in Pickaway County.
