John Carter arrested

Law & Crime Network has learned that at the time of his arrest, Carter initially agreed to speak with investigators, but later asked for an attorney when informed of his rights. It’s unclear what exactly Carter has been up to since Markham’s death. The Butler County Clerk’s website lists a Hamilton, Ohio, address as his place of residence: The house is less than a 10-minute drive from Markham’s apartment.

Carter is expected to appear before a judge early next week. Butler County District Attorney Michael Gmoser told the Law & Crime Network that his office conducted a thorough review of the evidence and case file. He said that this investigation contains a great deal of detail.

In a 2011 interview with Nancy Grace, Carter claims that he took a polygraph and passed the test. It is unknown whether or not that polygraph will be used as evidence in court.


Markham’s family and friends have always described her as a beautiful, young woman. At 22, she was preparing to graduate from the Cincinnati Art Institute in Ohio. She was engaged and saving money to move to Colorado. Markham worked two jobs: one at her campus bookstore and one at David’s Bridal.

On the night of August 13, 2011, Markham arrived at her Fairfield condo around 9 p.m. m. after working in the bridal shop. Her fiancé, John Carter, was already there and later, a friend of John’s stopped by briefly. Carter eventually left the condo and met some friends for a bonfire at 11 p.m. Markham stayed home and was reportedly upset with him for leaving. Carter said the last time he heard from Markham was just before 1 a.m. m. when she texted him a picture she liked that her boss had taken. Around 4 a.m. m., she went to her house, which she shared with her mother, and fell asleep.

The next day, Carter said she sent Markham a “good morning” text, but she never heard back. He claimed that he hadn’t heard from her all day and evening, so he worried about her and went to her condo to check on him. Her car was in the driveway, her dog was inside, but Markham was nowhere to be found.


Carter called 911 around 8 p.m. and told the operator that she was missing. On the 911 call, Carter makes the following statements: “My fiancee is missing, I can’t find her anywhere.” “I saw her at around 12 o’clock last night, she’s left alone in a house, so I’m very nervous. Her car is still there, I like that I was trying to locate her, and I decided to stop by her house and see if she was okay, and her car was still there. She would be at work right now, with her car, so I’m really freaking out.”
