FAIRFIELD, Ohio (AP) – The father of a young southwest Ohio woman who went missing three years ago says the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who killed her is now up to $70,000 thanks to an anonymous donor.

Skeletal remains identified as those of art student Katelyn were found in April 2013 in a wooded area in Cedar Grove, Indiana. A coroner ruled Markham’s death a homicide. But little is known about how she died.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports that Markham’s father says the family received a letter from a person who added $25,000 to the reward, but didn’t want to be identified.

David Markham says he has faith that the case will be solved.

His daughter was 21 when she disappeared days before her birthday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
