The grandmother of a Middletown woman missing since September is relieved her granddaughter’s remains have been found.
Now she wants justice.
Middletown police, the Butler County Sheriff’s Office and the county coroner’s office have joined forces to determine the mode and manner of the death of Lindsay Bogan, 30.
Bogan’s remains were found last week in a Madison Twp. farm field and identified through dental records confirmed by a forensic odontologist late Friday.
Bogan’s grandmother, Opal Bogan, 81, told this news outlet she appreciates the tireless work of Lt. Jim Cunningham and Detective Steve Winters from the Middletown Division of Police.
“He (Cunningham) told me he wouldn’t give up until he found her and he didn’t,” Bogan said this afternoon after arriving in the area from her Tennessee home.
Now, Bogan said, she wants the person or people responsible for her granddaughter’s death to confess to the crime.
“They need to be punished,” she said. “No one deserves to be treated that way.”
Bogan blames Lindsay’s death on some of the choices the young mother made.
“She met the wrong people,” she said. “That’s all I want to say about that.”
Bogan called Lindsay, the oldest of her five grandchildren, “a sweet and kind person.”
She said no funeral arrangements have been made.
“I miss her so much,” Bogan said.
Bogan’s father, Kevin Bogan, of Liberty Twp., declined to comment Saturday afternoon.
He had previously told this news outlet that he feared his daughter was dead.
