This week’s episode involves a Cincinnati, Ohio woman named Sarah Wallace, 20. She was murdered in July 2007. Sarah had big dreams. She worked at a local pharmacy and had career goals. Unfortunately, she wouldn’t live long enough to achieve her dream of attending college and becoming a nurse.

During the early morning hours of July 6, 2007, Sarah was shot to death. Her family believes Sarah told her boyfriend she was moving out of her apartment, breaking up with him and starting a new life. Betsy said that Sarah’s boyfriend had previously threatened with harm if she ever tried to leave him.

It all started with a 911 call just before 4 a.m. The call came from the boyfriend’s mother. She stated, “My son shot his girlfriend, my son accidentally shot his girlfriend, he believes she is dead, they were fighting over the gun.”

The boyfriend claimed Sarah was suicidal and wanted to kill herself. Allegedly, she picked up his gun and threatened to shoot herself. He claims while trying to take the gun from her, she was accidentally shot dead. The case was brought in front of a grand jury, but they refused to take the case to trial. I spoke to Betsy Wallace and Angela Walters, who are two of Sarah's family members. They continue seeking justice for Sarah.

If you have any knowledge about this case, please contact the Hamilton County Ohio Sheriff’s Department at (513) 946-6400 or you can reach out to Sarah’s family through their FB page titled Justice for Sarah Wallace. The family will share your tips with law enforcement.
