Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters Announces the Indictment of "John Doe"

Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced the indictment of "John Doe" for 11 counts of Rape (F1), 4 counts of Kidnapping (F1) and 4 counts of Aggravated Burglary (F1).  This defendant terrorized the Clifton area near the University of Cincinnati campus in 1995-1996 by breaking into four separate residences and sexually assaulting the female residents.

Deters explained that, "Although Cincinnati Police had a physical description of  a male white mid twenties to thirties, approximately 5'9" - 6 ft. tall, medium build with light to medium colored hair, they were not able to identify and arrest a suspect.  DNA analysis has confirmed that 3 of the incidents were committed by the same person and the fourth incident is a similar modus operandi.  We know through DNA profile and other information, who committed these crimes, but we need to put a name to the DNA profile.  We sought this indictment to make sure that when he is arrested, we are ready to prosecute him and that there would not be any legal arguments in regard to the statute of limitations.  Although some time has past since he committed these crimes, we remain committed to finding this individual to make sure that he does not terrorize anyone else."

If convicted of all charges, "John Doe" faces the possibility of 190 years in prison.

Anyone with information about these crimes is urged to call the Cincinnati Police Department or Crime Stoppers.
