Police now say they believe Lindsay Bogan was killed in the basement of a Wodlawn residence
An incomplete skeleton was recovered from the field during hours of searching by police, deputies and the coroner’s office. An examination of the remains by forensic anthropologist Dr. Elizabeth Murray indicates there was no trauma observed in the remains that would have occurred at or near the time of death.
“The case and manner of death cannot be determined,” Butler County Coroner Dr. Lisa Mannix said in her report.

Middletown police Lt. Scott Reeve pointed to the autopsy report, which shows meth in Bogan’s body, and the unknown cause of death as reasons the case may not be a homicide.
“There is no indication Lindsay Bogan is a homicide,” Reeve said. “There is just no evidence of that. When her body was found, it was just bones, and there are no markings on the body, that I know of, to indicate perhaps there is a shot or a stabbing or anything like that. Nothing to indicate foul play.”
