New Developments in 1989 Amy Mihalevic Abduction and Murder Case
Officials in Bay Village believe, a hand-made blanket, converted into a small curtain, and a store-bought blanket, might hold the keys to finding the person who abducted and killed 10 year-old Amy Mihalevic in 1989. The items were found in a ditch about 1-thousand feet from her body, which was found in a corn field in Ashland County. Investigators are now convinced, based on modern-day technology, that the curtain and the blanket were used to wrap Amy’s body.
