Ruth Carter – King of Diamonds, Ohio

When 50-year-old Ruth Carter was found murdered in her home in Dayton, Ohio, suspicions immediately turned to her former roommate. But no physical evidence could tie him to the scene, and years started to tick by without any leads to point investigators to her killer… until 2005, when a young man came forward with information that took detectives to the people who may have been responsible.
