Information wanted in slaying of couple

The Lucas County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information on the slaying of a young Springfield Township couple to step forward.

Johnny Clarke, 21, and Lisa Straub, 20, were found dead inside Ms. Straub’s parents’ Longacre Lane home on Jan. 31. The two were found with their wrists bound by duct tape and plastic bags covering their heads.

Investigators have said they believe the pair were killed in an apparent robbery attempt that occurred while Ms. Straub’s parents were out of the country on a Caribbean cruise.

Parts of the house had been ransacked, causing investigators to suspect the killers were looking for something.

The sheriff’s office has said they believe this was not a random act of violence, and that Ms. Straub and Clarke were targeted.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact the Crime Stopper program. Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
