    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

Later it is known that Ashley called 911 and said she had been assaulted but refused medical treatment. After she was reported missing, detectives searched her apartment but found no signs of foul play at the apartment. Ashley's car was a 1995 gold Pontiac Bonneville with Ohio License #ER94JA which was located a few miles from her home, about a month after her disappearance.

    At the time of her disappearance, Ashley worked as a dancer at the Dockside Dolls located at 2210 E Dublin-Granville Rd.

    Anyone know the story with the person who was abusing or attacking her when she made the 911 call? He probably knows a lot about her disappearance. She's been missing a long time. It doesn't look good. Odd that her car was never found. I wonder if she changed her mind and just took off if she feared for her life? Seems like she would have called her family by now though.

    Here's some information from a link that bykerladi posted:

    Weeks after her disappearance, police received a tip that Howley had been murdered and her body dumped in an unspecified location. This information has not been confirmed. Howley's boyfriend is the prime suspect in her disappearance. He was on probation at the time of her disappearance but the probation was revoked in October 2004 because he had not attended counseling, had tested positive for cocaine, and there was evidence that he assaulted Howley the day she vanished.

    Howley's case is being investigated as a homicide. She resided in the 6800 block of Clearhurst Drive in Columbus in June 2004. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance; it remains unsolved.

    I don't know if this is true but interesting if it is:

    ... Sources have said that the boyfriend was on probation at the time for a previous assault against Ashley...

    WBNS-10TV Columbus, Ohio: Family Hopes Reward Will Bring Answers

    ... Friends say Ashley never saw the bad in anybody, and they think that's what got her into trouble...

    A few weeks later, a tipster told police Ashley was murdered. Investigators contacted the boyfriend named in the police report, and detectives say he was expecting their call.

    Detective Russ Redman says, "The first words out of his mouth were that he had hired an attorney..."

    If you have any information about the disappearance of Ashley Howley, you can call Columbus police or Crime Stoppers. Callers do not have to give their name.

    It is pretty obvious what happened to Ashley and who did it. When her car was found I wonder if LE fingerprinted it? Someone must have driven it to where it was found. LE must not have found any evidence inside the car such as blood or anything like that. I guess if his fingerprints were in or on her car he would just say that he had been in the car or driven it before. I wonder if they checked the distance of the seat from the steering wheel as compared to Ashley's height. If the guy is taller than her and the seat was pushed back then that would mean that she wasn't the last person to drive it. Also if the rearview mirror was situated for someone taller than Ashley.

    Strange that the guy had already lawyered up isn't it. If I hadn't done anything wrong I can't think why I would need an attorney. I hope that LE can find a way to convict this guy. Wonder if he talks to his cell mates?

    Thanks for bumping this. This poor girl has been missing for SO long. I wish for resolution for the family. No new information but here's a link to a blog with some background information:

    ......Lost In Lima Ohio: A True Crime Blog: Ashley Howley

    At 3:13 a.m. June 16, of last year Ashley made a phone call to police to report that she had been assulted, presumably at her apartment. She refused medical treatment and informed police that she was packing up to go stay with a friend. Ashley, the pretty brownish blond girl with an unforgettable smile- never arrived at her friends. Her sister and a friend visited Howley's apartment on June 23 and found her missing, but said her car was parked in the parking lot and her dog was barking inside the apartment. Howley's car was gone by the time police searched her apartment on July 9. It would not be until fathers day- when she failed to call home- that her family would realize something was truly wrong. Even then it would take until September for her mother to be permitted to enter the apartment Ashley had rented. A month after Howley vanished, the Pontiac was found abandoned several miles from her home. It was covered in debris and the glove box was empty...

    (From the same site, a message allegedly posted by Ashley's mother on a message board):

    "...PLEASE HELP ME FIND ASHLEY. IT'S ALMOST A YEAR (JUNE 16) I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE POLICE OR ANYTHING I JUST WANT TO BURY MY DAUGHTER.. PLEASE I CAN'T TAKE IT MUCH MORE ..."

    (A comment left by "Ashley's cousin Kerry" beneath the blog entry):

    Despite the 100,000.00 reward, no one will talk and, believe me, many know what happened.

    I'm going to do some more looking on the Internet about her over the coming days. There's such a small amount of information here. It's sad that someone can disappear, most likely murdered, and so little information is available.

    4 April 08

    Investigators confirmed today that they have uncovered human remains near the Olentangy River just south of the Delaware County line, but they stopped short of saying the remains belong to a woman missing for nearly four years.

    and

    The search location is directly behind a home linked to Robert P. MacMichael II, Howley's former boyfriend and the prime suspect in her disappearance.

    MacMichael lived at one time with his father at 8250 Olentangy River Road, a home perched on a hillside that overlooks the woods now being searched.

    Ashley has been found

    Ashley has finally been found after several years of being missing. Forensics will probably be released tomorrow (Monday).

    Missing woman's family left to wait
    Human remains found along Olentangy River
    Saturday, April 5, 2008 3:20 AM
    By John Futty and Theodore Decker


    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
    Craig Holmandispatch
    The remains found this week likely will be identified with a DNA test. Police think they are Ashley Howley's and suspect she was killed by her boyfriend in 2004. He was living near the area where the body was found.


    Family and friends have long suspected that Ashley Howley, missing for nearly four years, was buried in woods near the Olentangy River just south of the Delaware County line.
    Investigators who unearthed human remains in a marshy spot beside the river this week say those suspicions likely will be confirmed when the remains are identified.
    "There is a probability that the remains belong to Ashley Howley," Sgt. Richard Weiner, a Columbus police spokesman, said yesterday.
    Robert P. MacMichael II, Howley's former boyfriend, sometimes lived with his father at 8250 Olentangy River Rd., which is next to the property where the remains were found.
    Howley, 20, disappeared in June 2004, one day after calling police to her North Side apartment to report that MacMichael had assaulted her. Police have said they are convinced she was murdered.
    Although never charged in the crime, MacMichael, 25, was referred to by a homicide sergeant in January as "our only suspect in the case." He has been jailed since then on charges that he killed his mother and her boyfriend in December.
    MacMichael's acquaintances often spoke of the marshy area behind the property as "where she's got to be," said Kerry Combs, one of Howley's cousins. "That's always been the talk."
    Combs said she is "as positive as you can be without a confirmation" that investigators have found Howley's remains.
    "It's like starting the grieving process all over again," she said.
    Robert MacMichael Sr. said investigators arrived at his home Tuesday afternoon with a warrant to search his property for Howley's body or her "personal effects."
    The investigators, though, spent little time there and took nothing, he said. They instead walked east into the woods, onto another property owner's undeveloped land.
    "It looked like they had an idea where they were going," he said. He said they told him only that they had received a tip.
    He said he first hoped they had found only deer bones. On Thursday, Assistant County Prosecutor James Lowe and two detectives walked up as he fed the birds in his backyard.
    "They just told me that it's now become a crime scene," he said. "I'm hoping it's not Ashley, and I hope my son is not involved."
    Search teams scoured the same area with cadaver dogs in August 2004 and found nothing, he said.
    Police released little about the latest search but said the skeletal remains were found in a shallow grave near the river bank. They said only that "information received" led them there.
    Weiner said the remains were being painstakingly removed and likely will have to be identified using DNA.
    "We're treating the area very gingerly right now," he said.
    Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien would not disclose what led to the discovery or whether his office had been talking with MacMichael and his attorney about the Howley case.
    "We have reason to believe that the remains are those of Ashley Howley," O'Brien said. "The underlying reasons for why that belief is there, I would not want to disclose."
    J. Scott Weisman, MacMichael's attorney, would not talk about the case but noted that MacMichael has never been charged in Howley's disappearance.
    Although MacMichael occasionally lived with his father on Olentangy River Road, MacMichael Sr. said he didn't live there in 2004 and rarely went into the woods.
    His son is awaiting trial in the slayings of his mother and her boyfriend at their home in Minerva Park. Barbara Rush and Greg Bartee were found beaten to death in their bedroom on Dec. 28, and MacMichael is charged with aggravated murder in what prosecutors said is a death-penalty case.
    MacMichael Sr. said he visits his son twice a week in jail, but they never talk about the slayings or Howley.
    "It's between him and his lawyers," he said. "When she first disappeared, I asked him flat-out: 'Did you have anything to do with this?' And he said no.
    "As a parent, it would break my heart if he's involved," he said. "Right now, I'm in shock and I'm waiting to see how it turns out."

    I can't understand why this father will be surprised if his son murdered Ashley. He is already in jail for murdering his mother and her boyfriend! If you would murder your own mother I think it would be easy to murder anyone not related to you. That is horrible.

    So the body hasn't been identified for certain but it is believed to be Ashley because of where it was found? Kind of adds up to 2+2=4 as Ashley has been missing for 4 years and this buriel sight is right by his dad's place. Boy, this guy has to be one violent person. A monster!
