Twenty-two years later and authorities still need your help solving a local homicide case.

As part of his Ohio Unsolved Homicides Initiative Attorney General Mike DeWine is seeking information on the shooting death of 57-year-old Ronald Pohl.

The Dayton man came to Meigs County to hunt turkey back in May 1992.

His body was found in the woods off of Price Strong Road in Salem Township.

Pohl was hunting with his son.

They went into the woods together, but then separated.

While they were apart, Pohl's son told investigators he heard multiple gunshots in the distance.

Then about an hour later, Pohl's son called for help when he couldn't find his dad.

The Meigs County Sheriff's Office is leading the investigation.

"22-year-old case is something that's not very easy sometimes to start digging up information because so many things have changed," says Sheriff Keith Wood. "The location's changed, maybe the property owners have changed, but we do have a couple of leads that we want to tie up."

Sheriff Wood wouldn't comment regarding those leads.

If you have any information regarding this unsolved case, call the Meigs County Sheriff's Office.
