Authorities need your help identifying a wanted rapist and murderer - and they're hoping a tip from you will help them solve a cold case.

Attorney General Mike DeWine wants everyone in Ohio to look at a newly released sketch of a man believed to have raped and murdered a young woman in Toledo.

"The person who committed these crimes more than ten years ago could be anywhere today," said Attorney General DeWine.  "We want as many people as possible to take a good look at this drawing because someone knows this killer."

Chrishana Logan was 19-years-old when she was murdered on April 15, 2000.  The Toledo woman was sexually assaulted and strangled inside her apartment on Robinwood Avenue.

"It's possible this man may have died, he may have stopped his random attacks, or he may have attacked other women who we don't know about yet," said Toledo Police Detective Jay Gast.  "No matter what happened to him, we want to identify this man in an effort to help those he victimized and their families move forward."

Four months after Chrishana's murder, Toledo Police believe the same man raped a 17-year-old, and in October 2000, he raped a 13-year-old who was on her way to school.

DNA recovered from the murder scene by Toledo Police and tested by the Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Investigation several years ago linked the three crimes to the single perpetrator.  The attacker's DNA, however, has not matched any cases beyond the year 2000.

"It's possible this man may have died, he may have stopped his random attacks, or he may have attacked other women who we don't know about yet," said Toledo Police Detective Jay Gast.  "No matter what happened to him, we want to identify this man in an effort to help those he victimized and their families move forward."

The attacker would be in his 40s or 50s today.  He is described as a bald African American male with a light to medium complexion.  At the time of the attack he had a mustache, a large stomach, and he was not circumcised.   He also had scars or blotching on his cheeks.

Anyone with information on the identity of this attacker should contact the Toledo Police Department at 419-255-1111.

Those with information on this or any other unsolved homicide can also contact the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) at 855-BCI-OHIO or submit a tip through the Ohio Attorney General's website.

Attorney General DeWine's Ohio Unsolved Homicides Initiative was developed in September 2012 in an effort to create a statewide database of the approximately 5,000 unsolved killings in the state. So far, law enforcement agencies have submitted 1,303 unsolved homicide cases to the database.
