I was recently contacted by a woman named Mirya Glover, who is Ernestine Hurt's granddaughter. In 1982, Ernestine was brutally stabbed at 202 E. sixth street in Cincinnati, Ohio. Unfortunately, Ernestine would later die in the hospital from her wounds. Ernestine has just become another crime statistic. Other than her granddaughter, barely anyone remembers her.
For many years she has tried to get justice for her beloved maternal grandmother. Mirya was just a child when her grandmother was brutally murdered. She told me the loss devastated the family. Mirya’s mother experienced homelessness and became involved with abusive men.

Mirya told me there was a former Cincinnati police officer who may have an idea of who could have killed her grandmother. Mirya said her uncle was a snitch who gave information about drug deals and other local crimes to a Cincinnati police officer. The uncle had enemies who may have wanted to retaliate against him by killing Ernestine.

There are no details about the killer. A witness claimed it was possibly a black man who stabbed Ernestine. But the witness wasn’t sure. Today, Mirya is the lone person seeking information about her murdered grandmother. She has pleaded with Cincinnati police and the FBI for help. But neither have given her any useful information leading to her grandmother’s killer.
