MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -- Remains found in Greene County, Ohio aren't those of Lindsay Bogan, a Middletown woman missing for more than eight months.

The skeletal remains of a woman were found three weeks ago in Spring Valley, Ohio, just outside Xenia.

Middletown Maj. Mark Hoffman said the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation determined they were not Bogan's remains, the Journal-News reported.

Bogan, 30, was reported missing in September. Her case is now considered a homicide and as early as March, Middletown detectives were following up on information that may point to her boyfriend, Eric Sexton, and his family.

Sexton, 48, of Wilshire Drive in Franklin, reported Bogan missing Sept. 14 and said he last saw her the day before getting into a silver Dodge Durango at the corner of Central Avenue and Baltimore Street in downtown Middletown. Sexton said he and Bogan, the mother of their 9-month-old daughter, were planning to get married.

Soon after, he was charged with promoting prostitution in connection with the case. He is serving a nine-month jail sentence for that offense.

Also, a polygraph test conducted on Sexton and his brother, Steve, "showed deception," Hoffman said.

He described the two men as the main persons of interest in the Bogan case.
