• FBI to return to scene where teen girl was found dead in 1994


    NORTH BENTON, Oh. - The FBI is seeking new evidence to help solve a cold case from more than 20 years ago. 

    Sarah Boehm, who was 14 years old at the time, went missing during the summer of 1994 after she left her home in Rochester to go to a friend’s house two blocks away.

    The Beaver County girl’s body was found months later in the Berlin Lake wildlife area south of Cleveland.


    The person responsible for her death was never identified.

    In 2009, county detectives worked with the FBI to attempt to gather new information, but no answers were found.

    An FBI agent told Channel 11’s Carly Flynn Morgan forensics is getting involved in the investigation.

    Officials on Friday searched the area where they found Sarah’s body in hopes of finding evidence they previously missed.

    Agents from Cleveland also assisted in the search and investigated an area about 800 feet away from where Sarah was found where 17-year-old Kathryn Menendez was found dead the same year. 

    The person who is responsible for Menendez’s death was also never found.

    Only a few of the original detectives and officials are still involved in the case. Many of them have retired. 

    Agents did not say whether their search Friday led to any new developments.
