A woman and her self-professed drug-dealing boyfriend were in bed. That’s when three men forced their way inside, shooting both of them.
The woman died and now, more than a decade later, police have yet to find the people responsible.
On July 11, 2010, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office responded to a robbery in progress at Wenning Road in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area.
Cops arrived and heard muffled gunshots. That is when they were told to a nearby address as someone reported two people had been shot, according to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.
Officers went to the home and found a woman, Heidi Bake, lying on her back in the living room area, outside the master bedroom, prosecutors said. She had a gunshot wound to the head.
A second victim, Antwan Little, was trying to walk around but was shot in the leg.
Bake and Little were in bed when three, Black men kicked in the side kitchen door, prosecutors said. The suspect went into the bedroom and pulled the victims out of bed. They started to attack the couple as they demanded money.
Little was shot in the bedroom and Bake was shot outside of the room.
Bake was pronounced dead the next day, and Little survived the incident.
Now, 13 years later, police have yet to solve the cold case. Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities at (855) 224-6446.
In 2016, Little spoke to Fox 19 about the case. Little said he planned to marry Bake before she was killed. Little said an hour before the murder, he got a call asking for him to sell drugs. He told the caller he could do it in the morning.
"Dude tried to squeeze the trigger on my head, but it wouldn't go," Little said, according to Fox 19.
He then started to fear that the worst was going to happen.
"She kept telling them ‘we ain't got no money, we ain't got nothing,'" said Little. "'All the stuff we had is gone someone came and got that."
Little said the murder changed his life. He stopped selling drugs, became a father and now has a good-paying job.
What remains are questions about who killed Bake.
