In Southern Ohio 13 women have gone missing or been murdered since 2014. Some of the women may have overdosed and their bodies dumped. But in at least a few of those cases, their lives were ended by another's hand. 

According to the CDC, over 70,000 Americans overdosed on drugs in 2017. The state of Ohio saw over an 18 percent increase in their drug related deaths. Today's episode concentrated on two women who were killed in 2016 and were a part of this world.

The two women were friends. Both at one point lived at an unsanctioned halfway house in south Columbus--the House for Lost Children. Below is information specific to each woman.

Lindsey Leigh Maccabee:
30-year-old Lindsey was a mother of two young girls from the south side of Columbus, Ohio. She, like so many others in this country, struggled with drug addiction. Due to this addiction, two months before her death her daughters were taken away from her care.

On October 6, 2016, Lindsey was found by a passerby on Lake Road near Pleasantville. She was nude with trauma to her body.

Danielle Leann Greene:
A month later, 25-year-old Danielle was found by a farmer in a soybean field. November 5, the Fairfield Sheriff's Office found a partially skeletonized woman near Allen Road.

Danielle was also a mother of two daughters. She also was suffering from drug addiction. Police estimate that she was in the elements for at least a few months.
