Katelyn Markham’s father calls for new detective to oversee investigation


THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS. THIS IS REALLY THE FIRST HARD THEORY THAT WE’VE HAD. SHEREE: ONLY ON WLWT FAILED POLL GRAPH TESTS. A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR’S FINDINGS REVEALED IN THE KAITLYN MARKHAM HOMICIDE AS HER FATHER NOW CALLS ON FAIRFIELD POLICE TO PUT A NEW DETECTIVE ON THE CASE. IT’S STILL THE SAME FRUSTRATION, STILL THE SAME WAITING U KNOW, ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER WEEK. WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN? SOMETHING HAS GOT TO HAPPEN NOW. SHEREE: KAITLYN MARKHAM’S FATHER IS DEMANDING ACTION TONIGHT. MIKE: HIS DAUGHTER DISAPPEARED FROM HER FAIRFIELD TOWN HOME NEARLY FOUR YEARS AGO. TWO YEARS AGO TODAY HER REMAINS WERE FOUND IN AN INDIANA CREEK BED AND NOW DAVE MARKHAM IS ARMED WITH NEW INFORMATION. WLWT NEWS 5’S KARIN JOHNSON JOINING US LIVE RIGHT NOW FROM FAIRFIELD WITH EXCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENTS. REPORTER: DAVE MARKHAM TELLS ME ON THREE DIFFERENT OCCASIONS HE’S REQUESTED A NEW DETECTIVE BE PLACED ON THIS CASE. HE SAYS A NEW SET OF EYES IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER BECAUSE OF WHAT I’M HOLDING RIGHT HERE, A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR’S FINDINGS, INCLUDING FAILED POLL POLYGRAPH TESTS FROM TWO PEOPLE IN KAITLYN’S INNER CIRCLE. IT’S BEEN ALMOST FOUR YEARS AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAS HAPPENED. REPORTER: FRUSTRATION GROWING FOR DAVE MARKHAM. IT IS GOING NOWHERE NOW AND IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE. REPORTER: TIME FOR A NEW DETECTIVE TO INVESTIGATE HE SAYS. KAITLYN WAS 21 WHEN SHE DISAPPEARED. TWO YEARS LATER A SCRAPPER FOUND HER REMAINS NEAR AN INDIANA CREEK. HER DEATH RULED A HOMICIDE BUT INVESTIGATORS HAVEN’T MADE ANY ARRESTS. ABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR JAY RYAN GREEN FROM FLORIDA WAS HIRED TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE CASE. I HAD GOTTEN SOME GOOD RAPPORT WITH SOME OF THE INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED IN KAITLYN AND JOHN’S LIVES, AND WITNESSES THAT, YOU KNOW, WERE THERE JUST HOURS BEFORE SHE WENT MISSING. REPORTER: GREEN INTERVIEWED MORE THAN A DOZEN PEOPLE, INCLUDING KAITLYN’S FIANCE JOHN CARTER. FIVE PEOPLE TOOK POLYGRAPHS. CARTER WAS NOT ONE OF THEM THEM. BASED ON THE TEST GREEN NARROWED HIS INVESTIGATION DOWN TO TWO PEOPLE. SUBJECT ONE TOOK A POLYGRAPH AND FAILED THE POLYGRAPH IN EPIC PROPORTION FOR THE POLYGRAPH EXAMINER. REPORTER: ANOTHER FRIEND GREEN SAYS FAILED QUESTIONS DIRECTLY RELATED TO KAITLYN’S DEATH AND DISAPPEARANCE. HE SAYS HE BELIEVES HIS EVIDENCE SHOWS PEOPLE THAT NEW KAITLYN OTHER THAN CARTER WERE AROUND THE NIGHT SHE DISAPPEARED. SHE SAYS SOMETHING HAPPENED AMONG FRIEND THAT AUGUST NIGHT CAUSING HER DEATH. THE INDIVIDUALS THERE PANICKED, AND DUMPED THE BODY. REPORTER: GREEN SAYS HE HANDED HIS FINDINGS OVER TO FAIRFIELD POLICE, THEY HAVE YET TO QUESTION THOSE TWO PEOPLE. WHEN THERE IS RESULTS LIKE THIS HANDED IN YOUR LAP AND NOTHING HAPPENS, YEAH IT’S FRUSTRATING AND IT MAKES ME ANGRY, IT MAKES ME VERY ANGRY. REPORTER: FAIRFIELD POLICE TOLD ME THIS AFTERNOON THEY HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THE TWO PEOPLE, HAVEN’T INTERVIEWED THEM YET. THEY TELL ME RIGHT NOW THEY ARE IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO REPAIR A RELATIONSHIP THEY SAY WAS LOST AFTER THE P ICON P ICON TACTED THEM. AS FOR PUTTING A NEW DETECTIVE ON THE CASE THEY SAY IT WILL NOT HAPPEN.
