Unsolved Homicide Database Includes 350 from Dayton, 1,800 Statewide
DAYTON -- The Ohio Attorney General's Office announced Tuesday that more than 1,640 cold cases have been added to the Ohio Unsolved Homicides Database.
Today, there are 1,808 cases in the database, 377 of those unsolved cases happened in Dayton.
Anita Walker knows two people who were murdered in the Dayton area and she is still hoping for an arrest in both cases.
"I'm sure all the other families want to see their loved ones cases solved as well. It's not just me," she said.
Dayton Police Homicide Supervisor Sgt. Rick Blommel said every homicide is assigned to a lead detective. At some point during the investigation, if the case goes cold it's assigned to a full-time cold case detective, who also gets help from other investigators trying to dig up new clues.
"Obviously, there are some that take years before information comes in. You have to stay focused on what you're doing," he said.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the purpose of the database is "to remind Ohioans that it is never too late to come forward with information."
Sgt. Blommel agrees.
"Anytime that you keep an investigation alive and get new information about that case it obviously is a good thing," Blommel said.

COLUMBUS (AP) -- Ohio's attorney general says the state's cold case homicide database now has more than 1,800 cases, more than 10 times the number it had before law enforcement agencies were asked to submit cases to the centralized site.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine on Monday announced that 1,640 cases have been added to the database since September 2012, when his office issued a call for case submissions.
DeWine says his office has received dozens of tips regarding several of the cases since the database was expanded. DeWine's office tries to draw attention to some cases by routinely featuring them on the homepage of the attorney general's website.
Cincinnati's police department has submitted more than 400 cases, while Dayton police has registered more than 350 cases.
