Missing Crawford County Teen Found Dead In Columbus House


Police said a missing teen from Crawford County has been found dead in a house in southwest Columbus.

Katlyn Williams was reported missing from Galion on March 26.

Last Thursday, the 14 year old was found dead in a house on South Wayne Avenue in Columbus.

A coroner's autopsy could not determine a cause of death.

The girls’ father, Bob Williams, told 10TV that his adoptive daughter snuck out her bedroom room, and he had not heard from her since that day.

“She had been communicating with someone online, I'd rather not say who they were," said Williams.

He said that person drove her from her Galion home.

“I do know the person who she was with," said Williams.

He added that he felt she might be in danger.

Williams said that he has no idea why she went to Columbus or who the people were that she was staying with.

“She was 14-years-old, and healthy, and there was no reason for her to up and die,” he said.

Authorities are now waiting for toxicology results and information from a rape kit to be returned from the medical lab.

No charges have been filed in the case.
