2 Trotwood homicide suspects apprehended in Cincinnati after pursuit, crash


CINCINNATI, Ohio (WDTN) – Two suspects wanted in connection with a homicide investigation in Trotwood were captured by the Ohio State Highway Patrol OSP following a pursuit that ended in Cincinnati.

OSP says around 10:30 a.m. on March 28, Miamisburg Police located a 2001 Mercury GMQ believed to be driven and occupied by two homicide suspects connected to a Trotwood Police investigation.

That homicide victim was identified on April 3 as 41-year-old David Robinson. The Coroner confirmed that he had been shot to death.

Miamisburg Police initiated a pursuit with the vehicle, and OSP Lebanon Post troopers intervened near Franklin Township on I-75 southbound.

Troopers were able to deploy stop sticks as the vehicle headed southbound toward Cincinnati traveling at a high rate of speed. The vehicle’s tires were deflated, and as they continued onward, the suspects were seen discarding items from the window.

After entering Cincinnati, the driver lost control and crashed into a median wall at Exit 1A on I-75 southbound. Both suspects were taken into custody and sustained non-life threatening injuries in the crash.

Maimisburg Police, Miami Township Police, Dayton Police, and Cincinnati Police assisted during the incident. Trotwood Police are investigating the homicide and OSP will investigate the pursuit and subsequent crash.
