Ohio police officials declare that Brian Golsby, a recently released convict, is responsible for the disappearance and murder of a 21-year-old psychology student from the University of Ohio. The man admitted to kidnapping the young woman and forcing her to withdraw $60 from her bank account before raping and murdering him. The woman’s parents were devastated to hear the news, as their daughter was only a few months away from graduating.
Makenzie Tokes was a 21-year-old Ohio psychology student, a loving daughter, and a great friend to those who knew her. The woman was only three months away from graduating when she disappeared without a trace.
According to the authorities, on the 5th of February, the Ohio psychology student uploaded a post on her Twitter account about her father asking to pick a nice frame for her diploma. A few days later, the woman’s car was found abandoned outside the campus. Regrettably, after extensive searches, the authorities found the woman’s body in a park, with two gunshot wounds in her head.
Sergeant Christ White of the Grove City Police Department declared that events leading to the young woman being found dead in a park 10 miles away from the campus began just a few days ago when 29-year-old Brian Golsby was released from jail after serving a five-year sentence for attempted rape and armed robbery.
On the 5th of February, Makenzie Tokes, the Ohio psychology student, uploaded her final post on her Twitter account. White declared that the woman was last seen alive on Wednesday evening, as she was leaving her workplace.
Failing to answer her cell phone, the woman’s parents called the police and reported her disappearance on Thursday. While conducting a sweep of the area where the woman was last seen, the authorities found Tokes’s car abandoned near the campus.
Unfortunately, a day later, the Ohio authorities found the woman’s body in a park, just 10 miles off campus. According to the coroner’s report, the Ohio psychology student was raped and then shot twice in the head.
White said that Golsby’s name turned up after the crime lab found matching DNA samples inside Tokes’s abandoned car. After being interviewed, the man admitted to kidnapping the woman as she was leaving from work, and forced her to withdraw $60 from her bank account before driving him to the park.
The Ohio Sergeant said that Golsby had been charged with kidnapping, aggravated robbery, aggravated murder, and rape.
