Kate March worked 18 years as a newspaper woman, mostly editing weekly newspapers in suburban Cincinnati; Lombard, Illinois; and Xenia, Ohio. She was a stringer for the Cincinnati Enquirer and was on the staff of the Pulitzer Prize winning Daily Gazette of Xenia, Ohio. On the Gazette she wrote a weekly column titled, "The Cop Shop," in which she told the stories other reporters only wished they could get.
Kate covered crime stories and police departments large and small and has been exposed to such strangeness as being called as a juror in a sensational murder case about which she had written the original stories.
The most gripping of all her stories, Kate said, was the Cabinet Supreme murders, which is told in her book, “No Witnesses.” That true crime book begins with the mass murder of four women in suburban Cincinnati. The back story of what led up to that horrible crime is told from interviews with the police, citizens, and victim's families. In-depth study of investigative reports, notes, and photographs gave Kate an insiders look at the crime.
Kate contacted the killers and visited them in prison.
Her interviews and correspondence with them led her to a full understanding of the crime, an understanding greater than the investigators had before trial. Kate's book goes on to tell the tale of the dissolute and corrupt youth of the shooter plus his violent and illicit activities as a convict, through the time he became an acquiescent inmate.
At the time of his third parole hearing in 1994, the shooter made history as the first man in Ohio to be refused another parole hearing for twenty years.
Kate March won numerous awards for her writing from various organizations, including the Northern Illinois Newspaper Association; the Ohio Newspaper Women’s Association; and the Ohio Newspaper Association. Included in her awards was recognition from the Ohio Newspaper Association for her coverage of the Cabinet Supreme murders. She was also recognized by the Price Hill Civic Club as a Woman of the Year in Business Life, and received certificates of appreciation from the Delhi Wing of the Civil Air Patrol and the Greater Price Hill Improvement Association.
Kate was a member of the Society of Professional Journalists (formerly known as Sigma Delta Chi) since 1977, and a member of the Miami Valley Literacy Council since 1988.
Kate's book, "No Witnesses-the Story of Robbery and Murder at the Cabinet Supreme Savings and Loan," was published after her death.
