To her knowledge, nothing has been done with the information she supplied.
Ohl was put on paid administrative leave from the Police Department last year and was terminated Aug. 4. Ohl said the reason given for her termination was her handling of the Huisentruit information.

Last year she filed claims of sex discrimination, religion discrimination and retaliation against the department with the Mason City Human Rights Commission and filed a lawsuit in federal district court.

Ohl was fired from the Police Department in August 2011 for reportedly not following department rules and procedures regarding possible evidence in a criminal case.
Ohl appealed her firing to the Civil Service Commission. The commission held hearings in September 2011 and agreed with Chief Lashbrook that Ohl mishandled information she allegedly received regarding the 1995 disappearance of KIMT-TV morning anchor Jodi Huisentruit.
The commission ruled Ohl neglected her duty by not documenting possible evidence and, in doing so, interfered with an investigation, and that she failed to properly secure police records and misused mobile audio and video recording equipment.
At one point Ohl accused state and local law officers of covering up evidence in Huisentruit's disappearance, an accusation that was denied by all the parties accused.
Ohl appealed the commission's ruling in Cerro Gordo County District Court. Earlier this week that suit was dismissed at her request.
Ohl did not return a phone call from the Globe requesting comment.
