The Disappearance and Murder of Nickeisha Holloman


Nickeisha Holloman vanished at the age of 23 in Cincinnati, Ohio in July 2018 Prior to her disappearance, Nickeisha was staying at a facility for mental health and substance abuse called the Crossroads Center. In 2016, she had been court-ordered to receive mental health treatment after being convicted for leading police on a high-speed chase and crashing a stolen car in Covington. Nickeisha was placed on medication for her mental health struggles while in the facility, and she was also taking medication for diabetes type II. 

On July 1st, 2018, Nickeishia left the facility and never returned. Surveillance cameras captured her exiting the building and getting into a white or silver Hyundai Sonata. Nickeshia left her medications behind, which was immediately worrisome. She was reported missing later that day.

A week after her disappearance, police stated that Nickeisha may be heading to Florida. It is unclear how police came to this belief, and very few other details were released. At that point, it seemed as if police felt that Nickeisha had fled from the facility and was missing on her own accord. Still, fears for her safety were beginning to build-especially since she had not contacted her loved ones. 

On August 22nd, 2018, human remains were found in a vacant lot on Mehmert Avenue in Mt. Airy. The remains were reportedly covered in mulch and very badly decomposed, so it took a few months for them to be identified. However, in October 2018, it was confirmed that the remains were that of Nickeisha Holloman. After it was believed that she had fled the state, it turned out that Nickeisha had not left Cincinnati at all. 

Nickeisha's cause of death has not been revealed, but her manner of death has been labeled as homicide. Her case remains unsolved. In 2019, police stated that they did not have any suspects. Very little information has been released since then.

There is a monetary reward available for anyone who has information that could help the investigation. If you have any information at all, please contact 513-352-3040.
