Jan. 10, 1995 | Christina Adkins, 18, a student at Lincoln West High School, was five months pregnant when she vanished without a trace on Jan. 10, 1995.
Christina went to a friend's house at 2405 Kinkle Ave. and left her friend's house between 12 a.m. and 12:30 a.m. to head back to her house, where she lived with her boyfriend, Jose Rivera.
She was last seen about 90 feet from the house by a friend who said she saw Christina talking to someone in a car, but the friend couldn't give a description of the vehicle.
Aug. 30, 2013 | New information led the FBI and police to West 25th Street and Interstate 90 -- specifically, Vega Avenue -- but their search for Adkins turned up empty. WKYC's Tom Beres said the FBI and police were digging in a basement of a home at 2610 Vega Ave., an access road along the north side of I-90.
Oct. 2, 2013 | Hopes of closing the 18-year-old Northeast Ohio cold case were temporarily dashed after authorities in Cleveland failed to find new clues while searching a field for evidence in the disappearance of Adkins.
Police arrived at a field in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood early in the day in the search for clues into her 1995 disappearance.
According to the FBI, which assisted in the new search, authorities were working on information developed by the investigators.
"It was not a lead or a tip that was called in. (The investigators) felt it was an area that needed checked out," FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson said.
Oct. 10, 2013 | Searchers locate human remains at a site near I-90 and I-490. Remains represent a nearly intact skeleton. Medical examiner says positive identification of remains could take weeks. A person of interest in the case is named as Elias Acevedo Sr.
Oct. 17, 2013 | Prosecutor Tim McGinty announces grand jury has indicted Acevedo on 293 counts including 4 charges of aggravated murder in two cold cases: Pamela Pemberton and Jane Doe--widely believed to be Christina Adkins pending DNA testing by medical examiner. McGinty also announced Adkins' ID card found in area adjacent to where skeletal remains being tested were found on October 10.
Oct. 18, 2013| Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner positively identifies remains found on Oct. 10 near I-490 as those of Christina Adkins. Prosecutor Tim McGinty said previously that once the identification process was complete, the indictment against Elias Acevedo Sr. would be amended and charges connected to murder of Jane Doe would be updated to relfect Christina Adkins as the second murder victim.
