Marcus Fiesel


Deb Dixon's first TV dream never came true. Thank goodness for that. She switched majors at Baldwin Wallace College in the early 1970s from sociology to communications because she wanted to host a children's TV show.

Instead she became one of Cincinnati television's best crime reporters, and one of our top TV storytellers, in her 44 years at WKRC-TV. After anchorman Nick Clooney left Channel 12, Dixon became the heart and soul of the newsroom, breaking the biggest crime news, giving hugs and support to her coworkers, and carrying on the spirit of her mentor Clooney.

It was a decade ago when thousands 0f people from Anderson Township and the surrounding area dropped what they were doing and began to search after hearing a 3-year-old boy had gone missing from Juilfs Park.

It's been ten years since Marcus Fiesel was murdered by his foster parents. The three-year-old's death led to large scale changes at Butler County Children Services, and at the state level.

It's been ten years since a three-year-old boy from Butler County was murdered by his foster parents. Hundreds searched for Marcus Fiesel in August 2006, only to find out he'd been tied up, left in a hot closet for several days, and his remains then burned.

Butler County Children Services is planning a remembrance ceremony Friday morning.
