Sellout crowd at The Ren for A Murder in Mansfield

A sellout crowd of 1,400 people packed the Renaissance Theatre Saturday night to see "A Murder in Mansfield." Ticket demand was so heavy the theater has offered a second showing at 3 p.m. Sunday, followed by a guided panel discussion featuring Collier Landry.

MANSFIELD -- Retired Mansfield Police Det. Dave Messmore knew he was on to something that chilly January day in 1990 when he approached the front door at 616 Hawthorne Lane in Mansfield.

He was there on a missing person case, looking for Noreen Boyle. But he found something else instead.

I've lived in Richland Co. since 1990, married here, our children were born here. This is home. I have two books published on a passion topic, Ohio high school football. Others: Buckeyes, Cavs, Bengals, Reds, History, Disney.
