Butler County Sheriff's Office to investigate Chelsea Johnson homicide
FAIRFIELD, Ohio (WKRC) -- The Butler County Sheriff's Office says it is investigating the Chelsea Johnson homicide case, after Johnson's mother begged them to.
Chelsea Johnson's body was found near a Fairfield creek close to the intersection of Pleasant Avenue and Nilles road in April of 2012. The 15-year-old had been stabbed to death.
George Davis has been named a person of interest in the investigation. He's serving time for offering drugs to Johnson in exchange for sexual favors. Butler County's prosecutor, Mike Gmoser, has said more work needs to be done on the case. He's denied claims by Fairfield Police that the case is now in his hands.
Last week Johnson's family gathered at the courthouse and demanded justice in the case. Johnson's mother wondered if another police agency should look at the case. Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones says his detectives have a lot of experience with difficult, cold cases. He says they've been working on the homicide investigation since last week.
Fairfield Police have said they think they know who killed Johnson, but no arrests have been made. So far, no comment from the department on the sheriff's involvement in the case.
