My name is Marc Hoover. I am a freelance writer and write a weekly column for The Clermont Sun, a local newspaper. In 2019, I won a Hooper award (placement pending) from the Ohio News Media Association (ONMA) for best original column. I have also written articles for the Examiner (now AXS.com), Huffington Post, Verblio, and Blasting News. Since childhood, I have always had a fascination with true crime and the paranormal. I have even lived in a haunted house so I am a believer in the supernatural. Additionally, I am a published author and have earned a B.S. in Business Administration and a Master's degree in Accounting both from Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana.
From 1999 to 2010, I worked in social services for Hamilton County JFS (Cincinnati, Ohio). I started out in child support enforcement and then worked with children's services securing homes for abused and neglected children. My experience with the county made me realize our society has many evil monsters masquerading as people.
I have also experienced the loss of a cousin, three former co-workers and a childhood friend to homicide. Fortunately, the killers were all identified. But there are thousands of unsolved homicide cases across America. I feel horrible for the families. It's one thing to lose a loved one to an illness or an accident, but when someone murders a loved one, it's worse. Someone has removed this loved one from your life for no good reason. Family members are left with photographs and questions without answers. I have also learned that law enforcement is either supportive or indifferent towards family. It doesn't seem like there is a middle ground.
Through my podcast and columns, my objective is to bring awareness to current and past crimes. I would like to encourage people to provide tips to law enforcement about unsolved homicides. Today, it's someone else's loved ones getting murdered. Tomorrow, it could be you or one of your family members. Can we all just be kind and treat others with decency?
