    Amy Mihaljevic case gets national exposure, police get new leads

    New leads in a cold case that has haunted the Bay Village Police Department and community for nearly 30 years, the murder of Amy Mihaljevic.

    Investigation Discovery recently aired a three-hour special and police said they have received dozens of tips and leads.

    “We’ve received between 75 and 100 leads and tips,” said Bay Village Police Chief Mark Spaetzel.

    New leads are always good, I just hope one of them is what LE needs to get the monster that did this. I think a lot of people (LE, media, and myself included) believe they know who did it. However, it seems that the evidence is not yet strong enough to make an arrest.

    30 years later: New DNA evidence surfaces in Amy Mihaljevic case

    This year marks 30 years since Amy Mihaljevic disappeared from Bay Village.

    In the weeks since a docu-drama aired on cable, new details about DNA samples – in the form of human hair – leaked out.

    The three hairs according to investigative author James Renner were found on “her body, her sweatpants and on her underwear.”

    He says the type of DNA contained on the hairs cannot rule suspects in, but can be used to rule individuals out.

    Renner says it also could lend credence to a theory of a small group of men taking part in the crime.

    “If true, these men could essentially alibi each other out for parts of the crime,” Renner says. “One man could’ve abducted her and another dropped body where it was found in Ashland county.”

    Thirty years and there has never been a named suspect. Police continue to interview and polygraph individuals in the murder of a woman who would now be in her 40’s.

    Is pedophile ring behind Amy Mihaljevic murder?

    Three different hairs were found on 10-year-old Amy Mihaljevic’s body when it was discovered in Ashland County over three decades ago.

    Traditionally, the suspect list has been linked to one abductor. But new findings could point to multiple assailants, and perhaps a connection to a pedophile ring in Michigan.

    During Richland Source's new true crime podcast, “Chalk Murder to Me,” Mihaljevic investigator James Renner, expanded on that theory.

    “It could mean a couple of different things; what we are dealing with here is what I’ve begun to suspect is a possibility, which is that more than one man was involved in what happened to her," Renner said. "And we’re dealing with a small group of people. Which would explain how some of these suspects alibi each other out.”

    But law enforcement believes, according to Renner, that these hairs could be from transfer.

    “Amy’s body was placed in the trunk or back of a car. Somebody who had ridden in that car a week ago, had dropped a hair on the seat,” Renner said about the transfer theory.

    Even if the found hair wasn’t necessarily that of the killer’s, if it was from a friend or relative, for example, that could lead to the perpetrator.

    On the podcast, Renner went on to explain the DNA that has been tested, what ethnicity could be derived, top suspects and who has been eliminated.
