    State identifies more than 100 voter fraud cases from November
    Ohio's elections chief says a review by county election boards across the state shows there were instances of voter fraud during the 2012 presidential election. Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted released the probe's findings after a statewide look he ordered in January. Husted outlined 135 possible voter fraud cases during the 2012 presidential election that were referred to law enforcement for more investigation. Twenty of those cases included people who apparently voted in Ohio and another state  and have been sent on to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. Cuyahoga County had the most referred to the secretary of state’s office with 15. Husted also said they did not find evidence of a single instance of voter suppression. 

    Cleveland and FBI hold 'Night Out for Missing Persons
    The city of Cleveland is working with the FBI to encourage residents to come forward with tips on missing person cases today. The Plain Dealer reports investigators will met with residents today from 4-8pm in two command vehicles parked on East 93rd Street at Heath Avenue and Seymour Avenue at Scranton Road. The event comes about two weeks after Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were rescued from a Seymour Avenue home where they had been held captive for a decade. Homeowner Ariel Castro is being held on 8-million dollars bond for rape and kidnapping charges.
