State of Ohio to show film about missing kids to prisoners

According to this article, my own home state of Ohio has put together a short film about six unsolved missing children cases and will show it in thirty-two state prisons, to hopefully get some tips out of the inmates. The article doesn’t say whether these will be only Ohio missing kids in the film, but I assume so.

Either way, I think this is an excellent idea! It’s sort of like the unsolved cases on prison playing cards, and I understand those have yielded valuable information. I hope other states adopt this idea as well.

    I’m guessing it will be more recent cases. Since I am into ice cold cases, when I hear Ohio missing children I think of Beverly Potts(missing 1951). It is a good idea, and I hope they do include some older cases, because there is always that chance that someone somewhere knows something!

    Glad to see you back Meaghan, and that you are feeling better.

      Have you read the book about the case? The author believes Beverly is probably buried very close to her home, possibly on her own street, and that whoever killed her was someone she knew well and trusted.

    Sadly, thats usually the case.

    Oh yes, I own that book! I bought it the summer it came out! I have even been to that park, and drove past her house (made a detour while on a road trip). I remember the author saying that, and I think he is right, she is most likely buried nearby and by someone she knew very well. I’m not sure if you remember me Meaghan, but we used to email back and forth a lot, especially about Beverly, and Evelyn Hartley….very haunting cases.

      Yeah, I remember you. Did that Hartley book ever come to fruition?

    Yes, “Where’s Evelyn?” by Susan Hessel came out in 2005. It is still available. I think if you Google it something should come up about ordering it. The film that was being made never finished, but there is still a clip of it on You Tube. Put “Evelyn Hartley” in the search box and it should still be there.

    I’m glad you remember me! I still come here everyday!

      I’ll see if I can get the book through inter library loan.

    So glad to hear about this being done. I also live in Ohio (Jackson County). I am glad this is a hobby for you regardless of the reason behind it. I am more of an ADD person, all over the place so I look at everything. I have found that your site is the most informative, the details are awesome and absolutely necessary when looking for people who are missing. I am sorry to hear about what happened to you but glad that you are still with us and not among the missing.
