    OH - Alma Noffsinger, 29, Oakwood, 17 December 1981



    http://www.delphosherald.com/index.p...eral&Itemid=44

    An unsolved 1981 homicide near Oakwood will be the focus of an episode of the TNT series “Cold Justice.” The episode is set to air on Friday, Aug. 8. TNT offers the following synopsis of the episode, titled “Second Thoughts”:

    Alma Noffsinger, 29, was an attractive, fun-loving mother of three young children. She was recently divorced from her second husband, Steve, and the two were in a custody battle over the child they had together. Throughout Alma’s marriage to Steve, she maintained a good relationship with her first husband, David, the father of her two older children. David’s new girlfriend was reportedly unhappy with their close contact.

    On Dec. 17, 1981, a neighbor noticed that Alma’s front door had been open all morning. Concerned, she walked inside Alma’s house, calling out for her when, to her horror, she came upon a lifeless Alma lying face-down in her bed. There was blood all over the room... Dr. Don K. Snyder, Paulding County Coroner, ruled her death a homicide. “The probable cause of death was a basal skull fracture from multiple blows to the head,” said Snyder.

    Friday afternoon, Paulding County Sheriff Jason K. Landers issued a press release to announce that Steven G. Noffsinger, 58, had been arrested following a Grand Jury murder indictment for the killing of Alma Noffsinger. According to Sheriff Landers, the two had been divorced for seven months.

    There are far too many cold cases in this country. It's hard to find much info on so many of them, even just a picture of the victim. But every victim deserves justice, and I'm so thankful we have no statute of limitations on murder.

    It does my heart good when one of these old cases finally gets resolved.

    Unfortunately, Alma's murder remains unsolved.

    From May:

    Jury acquits Noffsinger

    After five hours of deliberation, the jurors in the Steven Noffsinger aggravated murder case returned a not guilty verdict in Paulding County Common Pleas Court.

    Noffsinger trial - Day 5

    This is from last September; kind of hard to read now.
