BUTLER COUNTY — Middletown police have searched a residence on Woodlawn Avenue multiple times for evidence that Lindsay Bogan died in the basement of the home.

“We believe she was killed in the basement of 1504 Woodlawn and was later taken to Madison Township,” Middletown police Lt. Jim Cunningham told WCPO news partner The Journal-News.

Middletown police followed leads for months after Bogan was reported missing by her boyfriend Eric Sexton. That search came to an end in July when Bogan’s remains were found by a farmer who was plowing a field in Madison Township.

But what happened to the woman is still a mystery and an ongoing investigation.

Butler County Sheriff’s detectives are assisting Middletown police, who told the Journal-News that they continue to prepare a case to present to a grand jury.

The Butler County Coroner’s Office identified Bogan’s remains but has not determined how she died. Police are investigating Bogan’s death as a homicide.
