Good morning friends. I’m back for another wonderful and fun filled day at the annual TRS Valentine’s Day Party. Today, I will be postings about “3381 Market Street”. This tragic story happened in my birth town of Lancaster, Ohio. I will be awarding two lucky people who comment, a free paperback of either my true crime collection, “Twisted Love-twelve stories of love gone bad”, or my poetry collection. So please do comment. So let’s get started.
With a population of 35,313 people, Lancaster, Ohio, bragged of it being the birthplace of many notable actors, authors, sports stars, and cartoonists. Founded in 1800, the famous merchant, trailblazer, pioneer and soldier, Ebenezer Zane incorporated the town in 1831. Yet, now, like all cities, it was not above murder. The worst murder of a child in the county’s history.
According to twenty-eight-year-old Christina Sims, she hesitated many times before turning in her older brother John Ellis for the murder of his four-year-old son Christopher. Torn between her love for John, and Christopher, and doing what was right, the soft-spoken slender blonde with dark-eyes, said she looked to Christ for guidance. After speaking with her minister, she made the devastating choice of walking into the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Department on August 9, 2014.
