Documentary show set on slain Ohio woman’s birthday

FAIRFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Family and friends of an Ohio woman will mark her birthday by watching a documentary about her unsolved disappearance and slaying.

The hour-long “Taken Too Soon: The Katelyn Markham Story” is being shown at a theater near Markham’s hometown of Fairfield, a northern Cincinnati suburb. She would have been 27 Tuesday.

She was last reported seen five years ago this month. After extensive searches, her remains were found nearly two years later in a wooded area in Indiana some 25 miles away. A coroner ruled the cause of a death as a homicide, but little other information is known.

Authorities say they will continue to probe any possible leads in the case.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports that a victims’ advocacy group hired Georgetown, Kentucky-based Remix Films for the documentary.
