The Bay Village Police Department has requested money from the state to help cover the costs of the ongoing investigation into the murder of Amy Mihaljevic.

In October 1989, police said a man called 10-year-old Amy Mihaljevic at home. During that call, police believe he convinced her to meet him at Bay Square with the purpose of buying a gift for her mom who was recently promoted at work.

Amy's body was found a few months later in Ashland County. The case has not been solved, her killer has not been caught. 

The Bay Village Police Department requested an Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant in the amount of $300,000, which includes a 25 percent match from the city. 

The grant would cover investigative assistance to enhance the department's current investigative abilities. It would also cover the cost of administrative assistance to assemble, organize, streamline and digitize the extensive case file for the case.
