Woman kidnapped from Cincinnati found dead after chase in Tennessee
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A 36-year-old mother of two, who police say was kidnapped in Cincinnati and then shot, was found dead inside her vehicle after a chase in Tennessee over the weekend, according to police and court records.
Lance Miller, 32, of Abbott, Texas, is accused of abducting and fatally shooting Kaitlyn Lynch, 36, late Friday, Cincinnati police homicide investigators wrote in court records.
Miller was arrested in Cheatham County after a multi-county pursuit ended when officers used spike strips early Saturday, according to WSMV-TV.
The victim’s body was found in the vehicle, Cincinnati police wrote in a news release Monday.
Miller is currently held in a Tennessee jail on charges of murder and kidnapping. He waived extradition and will be heading back to Ohio.
Cincinnati police began looking for Lynch late Friday after receiving a report of shots fired in the 2800 block of Temple Avenue, according to the release.
Five minutes after the officers left, shots were fired.
Investigators found evidence on Temple Avenue of a shooting and possible kidnapping. They determined a victim might have been injured and held against her will in her vehicle that was taken, the news release states.
A Temple Avenue resident spoke fondly of Lynch.
“Nice neighbor, two little girls,” said a neighbor of Lynch’s. “She’s very friendly, you know, we see each other and talk and stuff.”
The investigation remains ongoing.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Cincinnati Police Department Homicide Unit at 513-352-3542.
