SANDUSKY COUNTY, OH (WTOL) -

New developments Friday in a two year old unsolved Sandusky County murder.

Authorities hope they’ve uncovered new evidence into the death of Heather Bogle.


TIMELINE: A history of the Heather Bogle case


The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation spent the day searching three trailers at the Emerald Estates Manufactured Homes Community in Clyde.

They removed property and forensic evidence.

BCI had been handling the case but it was returned earlier this year to the Sandusky County Sheriff’s Department.

New evidence was recently uncovered by investigators.

That’s why search warrants were issued and BCI was called out.

“No, it did not come from a tip. It was actually discovered once we took the investigation back and went through some old evidence and took that old evidence and built up on it,” said Sheriff Chris Hilton.

This is all connected to the April 2015 murder of Heather Bogle.

She disappeared from work and was found the next day in the trunk of her car in Clyde, shot to death.

Sheriff Hilton says five people living in the trailer were questioned on Friday.

There are not suspects or persons of interest.

Sheriff Hilton believes their information will lead his detectives to more information and eventually to find the killer of Heather Bogle.

“What happens now? We’re crossing our fingers. Hope BCI tells us some things that we need to know about the evidence that was collected and continue to conduct numerous interviews in the next week to ten days," said Sheriff Hilton.
