If Ava Lomas were my daughter, I would want someone . . . anyone to help solve her murder. She was found in an alley behind a residence in Toledo, Ohio in July 1979. It will be 40 years this month.
It’s been difficult to find anything on Ava Lomas. Sometimes I can find information through newspaper archives; however, the Toledo Blade archives only go back to 1997.
Although the Ohio Attorney General’s website says that she was born in 1969. I do know that Lomas was 20 years old instead of 10 years old. Did the police follow through with this case? Was there just not enough evidence?
If Lomas still has family out there, they must still be curious about what happened to her. They must still want some answers. I’m not related but I hope that someone still cares about Lomas and her case.
