CINCINNATI (TCD) — A 32-year-old man was apprehended in Tennessee over the weekend after he allegedly kidnapped a woman who was later found dead inside her car.
According to Cincinnati Police, on Friday, Aug. 18, at 11:52 p.m., officers went to the 2800 block of Temple Avenue for a report of a shooting. When they got there, they found “evidence of a shooting and a possible kidnapping.”
During their investigation, police learned a female victim “might have been injured and held against her will in her vehicle that was taken.” The victim’s car was later located in Tennessee and the victim was found dead inside. Police arrested Lance Miller, who was also in the car, on charges of murder and kidnapping.
WCPO-TV reports the victim has been identified as 36-year-old Kaitlyn Lynch.
