Does anyone think Kurt had an undiagnosed heart condition?

Yes! I think something health related could have occurred after an evening of drinking or possible drug usage.

It's certainly a possibility... stranger things have happened.

Occam's Razor in full effect here. Though the chances seem pretty remote, I'd buy this explanation over a plain OD (his mom said he was hanging w/a whole different group of friends, people who could've been unaware of any possible medical condition)

Usually people don't ask about other people's medical conditions at a party.

I meant that in the sense that the people at that party wouldn't know him the way his usual, close friends would - in any event, we're talking about something that was possibly unknown/undiagnosed (and it was my fault for suggesting other wise.

Newburgh Heights police partner with Tiffin University students on 1981 cold case
Police say mother left box of materials that will also help in renewed investigation of the death of Kurt Sova.

NEWBURGH HEIGHTS, Ohio — It’s a cold case that a mother never gave up on before she died.

Now, the Newburgh Heights Police Department is taking another look at the death of Dorothy Sova’s 17-year-old son Kurt.

And they are using box of case materials she compiled in their renewed investigation.


When Kurt’s mother died several years ago, Kurt's brother, Kevin, the only surviving member of the family, was shocked to find what she left had behind.

"I met with [the chief] and we started to open up boxes that I didn't even know that my mom still followed – pages and pages of information," Kevin Sova said.

Newburgh Heights Police Chief John Majoy said during a news conference Tuesday that he believes the case is worth reexamining. And he's invited a group of college students from Tiffin University, who are studying criminology and forensics, to add a fresh set of eyes to the cold case.

"We took a very, very comprehensive look at this case,” he said. “And we said we think there is some substance here. We think there is information out there in the world worth gathering."


Kurt Sova skipped school on October 23, 1981, went drinking with friends and ended the day at a house party on Harvard Avenue. He left the party that night and wasn't seen again by his family.

Kids found his body five days later in a nearby ravine that his family and friends and police thoroughly searched earlier.

The coroner couldn't say for sure what killed Kurt but said he was only dead for a day or so and that his body was dumped in the ravine.

It's a mystery that made national headlines and generated many leads that proved to be dead ends.

Students from Tiffin, the chief's alma mater, looked at a number of unsolved cases and picked Kurt's case. They and their professor then reached out to the police.

"We dug deep into the facts of the case and we actually came up with some theories,” student Kylie Shreve said at the news conference.

Kevin Sova said he welcomes the attention.

"Is it going to change what happened,” he said. “I don't know. But I'd like to know what happened. Somebody out there knows what happened to my brother Kurt. We are asking that you come forward."


Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County (216-252-7463) are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest. The Newburgh Heights Police Department tip line is 216-386-0024.

Much publicity for this case in the last few months. A pleasant surprise since both of Kurt's parents and two of his three brothers are now deceased. An investigator is working with criminology students from a nearby college.

He says, "The biggest question...how'd he get there? How did he get there? He didn't walk there. There's no way he walked there. And the evidence shows that. Somebody put him there. Who put him there?"

Ask Clayton and Debbie Sams. They'll know. But they still probably won't talk...

Excellent press conference and glad to see they are really pushing this for media exposure as well! This crop of Newburgh Heights PD seems a lot more legit than the original cast of characters who had inhabited that PD back when Kurt Sova passed away. It was also great hearing from his brother Kevin, and how he described Kurt's personality, what he liked, what he was like, etc.. Was great to hear, after always wondering about that for so long. I especially liked it when he said Kurt could take care of himself and would put him up against anyone in the room, the fact that he grew up w/ 3 older brothers and was not timid, and able to take care of himself. Eager to keep following this case.

Kurt Sova is a case that ran on the specials right? This case is the very first case I remember seeing --- I was at my grandmother's house on vacation and we wrapped up on the couch to go to sleep and I think (?) I remember seeing Raymond Burr narrate this case.

It's weird how Unsolved has tried to white wash Raymond Burr and Karl Malden from existence.

It also creeped me out and it's a shame that it's the oldest case I remember and it never had any resolution.
