The unsolved homicide of Chelsea Johnson will get a fresh set of eyes from the Ohio Attorney General’s Cold Case Unit, according to WCPO.
This new unit from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations offers new forensic analysis and investigate resources.
Johnson was found stabbed to death on April 15, 2012 hours after family had reporter her missing. Her body was found near a creek behind an apartment complex in Fairfield, only a few miles from her home, according to Fox19.
“The passage of time can actually help, in that some witnesses become more willing to cooperate and technology advances. Consider, for example, how DNA testing has unmasked, time and again, violent criminals who got away with living among us for so long,” said Attorney General Dave Yost.
George D. Davis was sent to prison for drug trafficking, importuning, and having weapons under disability for attempting to exchange heroin for sex with Johnson. He was never charged in connection with her death, according to WCPO.
Davis was released from prison in 2017, according to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. He was arrested again this past May in Hamilton County for promoting prostitution and is awaiting trial.
Fairfield Detective Doug Day said the department looks into all leads
In a June interview with WCPO, Johnson’s mother Vicky Fble, expressed frustration with the lack of progress in her daughter’s case. According to Fible, she hasn’t been in contact with Fairfield police in years.
