FBI Search For New Clues in Rochester Girl’s Murder

The FBI and other agencies are searching a northeastern Ohio tract where the bodies of two teenage girls were found in 1984. The FBI is working with investigators from Portage County, Ohio and Beaver County during today’s search near the Berlin Lake Wildlife Area. The body of 17-year-old Kathern Menendez was found near the Berlin Reservoir on Aug. 25, 1994, four days after she was last seen near Alliance, Ohio. The remains of 14-year-old Sarah Rae Boehm were found about a half-mile away on Nov. 4, 1994, five months after she was reported missing from Rochester, about 50 miles away. The FBI is looking for DNA and other evidence to determine who killed the girls, and whether their deaths are related.
