Tips pour in following "Cold Justice" program on Stone case

GCSO: calls coming in from around the county with new information

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- Sheriff's detectives say their office has been flooded with tips since a Guernsey County cold case was featured on a nationally-syndicated investigative program last Friday.

Capt. Jeff Paden of the Guernsey County Sheriff's Office said that people from the area and from around the country have come forward with new information related to the 23-year-old homicide case since TNT's "Cold Justice" aired last Friday night. The program centered on the murder of 17-year-old Robin Stone, who left home after her first day of senior year of high school never to be seen alive again. Stone’s body, along with the remains of her unborn child, was discovered less than a mile from her home four months after she disappeared.

Advances in forensic technology allowed investigators to prove the theory that 40-year-old Lee Savage, who has long been a suspect in the case, may have been the father of Stone’s unborn child. Savage has not returned AVC News' requests for an interview or comment.

Detectives said that Prosecutor Dan Padden was not ready to bring charges against Savage at the conclusion of the “Cold Justice” investigation; however, investigators said that the paternity test, combined with new testimony on the suspect’s alleged history of physical and sexual violence, have brought them closer to bringing charges in connection with the case.

Anyone with information regarding Robin Stone's murder is encouraged to contact the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office at 740.439.4455.
