Marion County, Ohio homicide victim identified 32 years later


MARION COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH) — A homicide victim in a Marion County cold case has been identified after 32 years.

According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the body of a male victim was found in the Flat Run Creek area in July of 1989. Deputies were unable to immediately identify the man, and the case went cold for 32 years.   

However, after contacting the DNA Doe Project, and through efforts by the FBI and the Ohio BCI, deputies have now identified the victim as John Kraicinsky.  

Kraicinsky was never reported missing because his family believed he had just moved away to start another life. 

No suspect information or cause of death was released.
