    Are any photos available of Greenwald to compare to the description of the man seen in the area of Rowan's body? It would be interesting to know what type of vehicle Greenwald was operating.

    Is it possible that Tracey called Greenwald from school to pick up her when she was unable to talk any of her friends into mischief?

    I'm also curious as to where Greenwald would have been working at the time of Tracey's disappearance.

    I didn't find any photos of Greenwald, but another article I read stated theat he was being sentenced for a "manslaughter" charge. So, because he pled guilty they probably made him a deal. He would have been out again in no time flat.

    When was that? If he is still incarcerated, he might be on the correctional facility website with pic.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    According to Hollow's post (#15) Greenwald killed himself, I'm assuming sometime in '84.

    Greenwald Arrest Photos...

    Greenwald would certainly have been photographed and fingerprinted as a routine procedure upon his arrest. Those photos should be available to investigators involved in the other two cases.

    If Greenwald had been in his car at the time of arrest, or if it had been identified in a search warrant, that information would be available as well.

    ........After Greenwald decided to plead guilty, prosecutors tried unsuccessfully to obtain information from him concerning Tracy's disappearance, Jennings said.
    " We were hoping we could get answers to a lot of questions," Jennings said "He admitted to nothing."
    Jennings said Greenwald did not disclose a motive for killing Byrd. At the time of her disappearance, friends said she had seperated from him and grown fearful of him.
    Two years before the murder, Greenwald pleaded guilty in Bucks County Court to kidnapping and assaulting Byrd in an incident that began in a Middletown apartment where she was staying with another man.
    Greenwald stabbed the man with a knife, abducted Byrd and led police on a high-speed car chase into Trenton, where he was captured, according to police and court records.
    Byrd, however, spoke in defense of Greenwald at his sentencing in that case, influencing Presideng Judge Isaac S. garb to sentence him to five years probation, said Robert Goldman, chief deputy district attorney, who handled the case.
    "She spoke up to mitigate the facts" Goldman said "She made excuses for his actions. We didn't agree to probation. I'm sure the judge's sentencing was based in part on what Jean Byrd said about Greenwald."
    Goldman said he saw the Byrd tragedy as a classic example of "battered woman syndrome."

    Kind of off topic, with the Byrd case and all, (unless they are connected). Does anyone else think that maybe Tracy was pregnant and maybe the father might have been Paul Greenwald and that was the motive for killing Jean Byrd?? I also think it was odd that he committed suicide (if that is what happened) when facing a manslaughter charge, which was like nothing back then. Maybe his conscience got to him??

    ...The victim was suffocated, according to Dr. Thomas J. Rosko County Coroner.
    ...He said an effort is being made to locate dental records that could confirm the identification.
    Rosko also said the victim suffered no broken bones, no stab wounds nor gunshot wounds. He listed the death as resulting from asphyxiation by suffocation.......
    When Miss Rowan disappeared she was reportedly wearing a blue top, blue shorts and blue flip-flops. She was also carrying a softball and a baseball glove and a portable AM-FM cassette radio.
    ...The body had been covered with branches,indicating the murderer intended the body not be found.
    ...Zajac said Barbara's mother, Patricia, 31, who is a patient at Frankford Hospital's Torresdale Division where she had undergone gallbladder surgery, was informed by her husband, Robert T. Rowan, 41, of the finding of the girl's body.
    It was Rowan who first drew public attention to his daughter's disappearance.
    Rowan insisted his daughter had headed up Bristol Road to the Mall Motel about 3 p.m. to play with a girlfriend who lives there. He said he and his wife became concerned when she failed to return home at 5 p.m. He notified police at about 7:30 p.m.
    Zajac discounted Rowan's time estimates, saying that the police were not notified until 9:28 p.m. He said investigators subsequently learned that Miss Rowan did not head for the motel but had been playing baseball in the trailer park.

    In and around the time Barbara disappeared , in this area, the Warlock Motorcycle Gang seemed to be creating a lot of havoc. I at first discounted why in articles I read, police seemed to keep connecting them to suspicion on some of the disappearances of these young girls from the Philadelphia and Delaware County area. I read an article last night that a Robert " Mudman" Simon, who was a cop killer BTW and was beaten to death while sitting on Death Row by another inmate, was convicted of the 1977 death of a young lady named Beth Smith. Miss Smith's body was recovered from a water filled pit in Luzerne County PA. She had been shot once in the forehead. Mudman was convicted of her death because a fellow gang member made a deal with authorities and told of how Beth went to a party with Mudman and refused to share her favors with the whole gang so he shot her in the head with a revolver. Other people at the party also testified to this. It makes me wonder about these other four murders in that area:
    Debra Jean Delozier 1975, found in the Tinicum Marsh, shot in the forehead
    Denise Seaman 1975, found in the Tinicum Marsh, shot in the forehead
    Mary Ann Lees 1975, found in the Schuylkill River, shot in the forehead
    Layne Dorothy Spicer 1975, found in the Schuylkill river, shot in the forehead

    Also Wendy Eaton, who is still listed as missing from this area, was a friend of Denise Seaman. I wonder how many of these 70's missing girls tie into Mudman.

    These murders all sound very similar. It would be surprising if LE did not connect them back in 1975. What were the balistics on the weapon used? Was it the same caliber? Were any bullets or casings recovered?

    I know the four girls found in the marsh and the schuylkill river were all shot with a 22 caliber revolver. In the story I found about Beth Smith being shot, Mudman's friend simply stated that he raised a revolver and shot her in the head. I don't know anything else.

    Just thought that I would bump this case up. There was some good discussion about possible serial killers in PA. Anything new?
