This article reports that Cleveland Mayor Anthony J. Celebrezze assured Bay Village it can have access to "all the facilities of Cleveland's' crack homicide bureau and crime detection equipment in the search for the killer of Marilyn Sheppard." Celebrezze said Cleveland would not be taking over the investigation, he was merely offering help. A Bay Village Councilman accused Coroner Samuel Gerber of "shoving Cleveland detectives out of the investigation for political reasons." Attempts were being made to recall the Head of Cleveland's Homicide Bureau, David E. Kerr, from vacation to help with the investigation.
