Missing and Solved

I caught this article and two words sent chills down my spine. Six years before this couple was murdered, a classmate disappeared from the same location during the post-prom festivities. Rumors and sightings have been around for years. Someone claimed to see her in California, so the story went. Now, it appears less likely that she's merely a runaway. 35 years later.

I did not know her well, but I recall her as a nice girl. She lived not-too-far from my neighborhood (nothing is all that far in Oconomowoc). My childhood friend had a serious crush on her. It got us both into one of those things you can recall later as "a funny story".

I hope this new connection brings an end to this story.
