Still no leads one year after remains of Katelyn Markham found

(FOX19) - The family of Katelyn Markham is still looking for answers as Monday marked one year since her remains were finally found after being missing for nearly two years.

A group of people searching for scrap metal along a creek near Cedar Grove, Ind. made the discovery last April.

She was reported missing in August 2011, and in August her death was ruled a homicide.

"I miss her," said Katelyn's tearful father, Dave Markham.

The days are up and down for Dave Markham as he continues to search for answers.

"It's a sad day.  It's a day that, yes, she was found and brought home, but a year later, we're still kind of in the same position we were with no answers," said Markham.

There have been no arrests or named suspects in the case.  Her death is ruled a homicide, but haven't said how she was killed.

"Every now and then there might be a tip or they're going to look into this or hear about that, then it never pans out to anything," said Markham.

The Ohio Chapter of Texas Equusearch and the community spent countless hours and days looking for Katelyn.  The search for an answer still continues, though.

"You still have that feeling that it's still not complete.  She's home where she belongs, but the story isn't complete yet.  It needs to have an ending," said Dave Rader of the Ohio Chapter of Texas Equusearch.

They search for people all over the country, including several other missing persons cases still unsolved here in the Tri-State.  Dave Markham has helped with those efforts.

"Right before Katelyn was found, Dave was down in Arkansas with us looking for somebody else's daughter.  When he got back, because of what he did, I feel that that's why Katelyn was found," said Rader.

Even though the days keep passing by with no answers, Katelyn's memory is hard to forget.

"There's still a lot of people that, you know, they'll post something on Facebook or just a little memory or something of Katelyn.  I know she's deeply missed by quite a lot of people," Markham told FOX19.

There is a $45,000 reward in the case supplied with money from Jeff Ruby, donations and Crime Stoppers, Rader tells FOX19.  If you have any information about the case, call the Indiana State Police at 812-689-5000, the Fairfield Police at 513-867-6094 or Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
