The Long Walk Home: The Asenath Dukat Project
If you lived in the area surrounding First Community Village, you will certainly recall "Frankenstein's Cave" as it became known amongst the local kids. Frankenstein's Cave is a tunnel that allows the creek at FCV to follow it's course underneath route 33 from East to West toward the Scioto River. Its name is fitting as it's been a place for younger kids to incorporate into their adventuring and older kids to hide to do the stereotypical teenage things that can't be done at home or in public.
Frankenstein's Cave is a central part of the investigation because of it's proximity to the culvert where Asenath was found and it provides undetected access to both sides of the river under Route 33. More importantly, we believe that Suspect2 was asked at the time of his polygraph on June 7th 1980 if he know Suspect1 who had just been incarcerated in Willoughby, Ohio the day prior. Suspect2 stated that he and Suspect1 had used Frankenstein's Cave to do drugs in the past (no timeframe specified).
According to an 8/10/22 press release, Asenath's case is closed by the city of UA, but it is far from closed for us. We applaud the countless hours and hard work that lead to the confirmation of Brent Strutner’s involvement in the crime. However, after viewing the totality of the evidence, it is reasonable to conclude Brent Strutner did not act alone. Our mission will continue based on that belief and as long as the Dukat family and our community continue to support our efforts to bring all involved to justice. Explore our site and we are confident you may come to the same conclusion.
