BAY VILLAGE, Ohio — Thirty years ago, Bay Village Police Chief Mark Spaetzel spoke to an elementary school about the dangers of strangers.
Little did he know that a 10-year-old girl in his audience would become the victim of one that very afternoon.
Amy Mihaljevic would meet a man after school who had asked her to go shopping to help pick out a present for her mom—and Amy would never come home.
To this day her bike remains in the department’s evidence room, tires deflated.
In episode 2 of Amy Should Be Forty, you will learn about the suspects in her murder. Did she know her killer?
Amy Should Be Forty is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Podbean, Stitcher and Google Play. 3News will spotlight an episode every Wednesday through Dec. 11, which would have been Amy Mihaljevic’s birthday.
