Local law enforcement recognized for work on "Craigslist Killings" case

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A group of local investigators was honored during a state law enforcement conference in Columbus on Wednesday.
Guernsey County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Jason Mackie, who then worked for the Noble County Sheriff's Office; Noble County Prosecutor Kelly Riddle; Ohio BCI Special Agent Steve Burke; and FBI Special Agent Drew McConaghy were among those that received the Distinguished Law Enforcement Group Achievement Award at the Attorney General's Law Enforcment Conference. The award is tied to the successful arrest and prosecution of those involved in the so-called "Craigslist Killings."
According to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine's office, multiple local and state agencies contributed to uncovering the serial killing spree in late 2011. Three men were shot and buried in shallow graves after being lured to rural parts of Ohio by Craigslist ads promising farm work. Richard Beasley received a death sentence for leading the killing spree. Brogan Rafferty will spend life in prison.
Also honored for their part in the investigation were members of the Akron Police Department, Summit County Prosecutor's Office, U.S. Marshals Service, and Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force.
