    OH - Elizabeth Griffith, Ashland, 26 August 2016


    Elizabeth Griffith's missing case came to the media attention today when police in Ashland county gave a press conference indicating they had rescued a "missing" woman held against her will in a house in Ashland. Police at the scene of the abduction rescue also found 2 dead bodies and arrested a man for kidnapping. The missing woman turned out to NOT be Elizabeth. Still awaiting confirmation on the identity of the 2 bodies. Thread about the abduction/bodies/man arrested here: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...*ARREST*/page5

    Griffith is missing from the city of Ashland and was last seen Aug. 16 in the area of Aldi and Walmart. Police believe she may have been in Ontario within the last few days.

    Edna Boals, a friend of Elizabeth Griffith, said she had had negative interactions with the man who lived in the Covert Court house, as the man was always yelling at Boals to get away from his property when she was walking in the area to do laundry at the nearby laundromat.

    Friends of Elizabeth gathered with friends and family of another missing woman Stacy Stanley, waiting to hear answers:
    Stacey 's son Kurtis and others canvassed downtown Ashland with missing persons flyers.

    One is still prominently displayed at the laundromat right across from 365 Covert Court where friends of another missing woman named Elizabeth and those who knew Stacy are gathering, hoping their worst fears aren't confirmed when the two bodies found inside are identified.

    "New information" in Elizabeth's case:
    Now, investigators are keeping the missing person's case of Elizabeth Griffith sealed based on what they call new information.

    Griffith was last seen at the Walmart last month.

    The second victim in the home has yet to be identified and the Cuyahoga County coroner assists with the autopsies.

    I've never heard of a missing person case being "sealed". I suspect police think she is the other victim in the house?

    That would be my guess as well.

    The second body has been identified as missing woman Elizabeth Griffith.

    Her friend, Edna Louise Boals, worried it was going to be Griffith. Griffith has not been seen since Aug. 16, when she was captured on surveillance cameras at a local Aldis.
    "We all love her," she said.
    Shawn Grate, arrested and charged in the case, later led police to a third body in Mansfield.
    Boals claims that Griffith dated Grate at one time.

    ASHLAND - Elizabeth Griffith was outgoing, friendly and spent much of her time at her church and the Kroc Center, said the people who knew her Friday night.

    A funeral service was held at Grace Brethren Church on West Main Street. A balloon launch followed the service by members of the Ashland community.
    "She used to come up and visit the ladies who lived in the Essex House, and one lady had her hip broken a couple years ago and Elizabeth wanted to come up and take care of her until she got better," Thompson said.

    "She (Elizabeth) was happy, always singing, always friendly," said Thompson. "She walked everywhere. She had a payee because if I said to her, I need $150, she'd say OK," she said, adding Elizabeth was developmentally disabled.
