The Long Walk Home: The Asenath Dukat Project
Dedicated to Seannie, the Dukat family, the relentless investigators of the UAPD and
the UA kids who would never forget.
June 3rd, 2020 marked the 40th anniversary of Upper Arlington’s most tragic day, the loss of our own Asenath Dukat. We are an organized group of UA kids who had to grow up that day in 1980. We are adults now, with the expertise, resources and fortitude to tell the story of Seannie, the investigation and its impact on our community. Our objective is to share that story, entitled “The Long Walk Home” with the community so deeply impacted.
We have chosen to remain anonymous as we do not seek personal attention, recognition or profit.
Closure is the only reward we seek.
We are UAHS graduates, love our community and deeply respect our government and police department. We know that those who preceeded us, Thomas French, Kenneth Borror, Thomas Kulp, Ed Tyne and countless others- to this day- worked relentlessly to solve this case.
We don’t pretend to possess the expertise that they have, but us kids are adults now, we have the skills and resources to complement their work. More so, through this site, we have the power of community. Especially through the UA kids of the '80s who won't ever let the memory of our fellow Golden Bear, Seannie Dukat fade.
We are U.A.
The Long Walk Home is your opportunity to participate in our project and support our mission by sharing memories of Seannie and the impact her tragic death had on our community.
As we provide information to you leading up to the anniversary, we welcome your questions and tips which may be shared with the UAPD with hope they help provide the answers we all seek.
"Maybe it will tomorrow, maybe next month, maybe next year or in ten years. But someone will show up."
- Alexander Dukat, June 1981

June 3rd, 2021 marked the 41st Anniversary of the passing of Asenath Dukat. On this day, we were proud to announce that the Long Walk Home has partnered with The Porchlight Project, a non-profit with a mission to close cold cases. On April 14th, 2021, The Porchlight Project offered the City of Upper Arlington and the UAPD access to the most advanced DNA testing and the funding to execute it.
We are anxiously awaiting a response to our offer.
