Clues wanted in slayings of Springfield Twp. 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 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 were ransacked, causing investigators to suspect the killers were looking for something.

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

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