Late in the evening on Friday, October 30, 1987, three people are murdered by at least one gunshot to the head in a house located at 2188 Consolidated Road, in Eaton, Ohio.

The names of the murdered individuals are David Smelser, Melinda Newcomb, and Donnie Marker. The bodies were not found until the following Monday, 3 days later, at approximately 5:30 p.m.

In this episode of Zone 7, Crime Scene Investigator, Sheryl McCollum, talks with guest Greg Noble, a seasoned attorney, and former prosecutor, as they dive into the cold case of the 1987 Preble County triple homicide. As they navigate through the rural landscapes of Ohio and the mysterious Poos family cabin, they shed light on the victims’ backgrounds, the lack of motive, and the alarming blood evidence.

Sheryl and Greg’s exploration of this cold case is not only a window into the past but also an urgent call for community involvement and the pursuit of justice.
