Ohio V. Doan - The Missing Girlfriend Trial
The trial of Vincent Doan was to be one of the most controversial trials, in that a man was being
charged with a murder of his ex-girlfriend who was missing and presumed dead, although her body
had never been found. I have divided the testimony up into the two sections for anyone wishing to
read all the information. The prosecution contended that Ms. Culberson died at the hands of Vincent
Doan or about August 29, 1996. However, Mr. Doan's defense team would bring forward 19
witnesses who claim to have seen Ms. Culberson and her 89 Red Honda CRX. If you would like to
purchase the complete trial transcripts, you may call the Blanchester, Ohio Clerk of Court. You may
also contact Court TV regarding the purchase of the trial in it's entirety on VHS. Below are some
items entered into evidence.
