MS - Rose Marie Levandoski, 13, Ocean Springs, 1 February 1973
Another cold case that has recently been reopened near my hometown. Rose Levandoski was taken from St. Martin Junior High on February 1st, 1973. Her body was found nude in the Tchoutacabouffa River in Biloxi. She had been stabbed in the back.
A tip had come in the day she disappeared from a trucker using the CB handle 'Yellow Bird' claiming she was at a ballgame. Other people have come forward with information, but nothing that leads to her killer. A week before her body was found, one woman remembers hearing a "blood-curdling scream" near her house. Other incidents include a girl calling the family and saying that she knew where Rose was and a man who threatened to do the same thing he did to Rose. The threat was made to a female working in a Gulfport office.
I'm posting this information in hopes that someone knows who killed Rose.Help bring Janie Sanders' murderer to justice.

Rose met her abductor sometime after she asked to be excused from class to go to use the restroom.
In order to go to the restroom Rose had to exit the bldg she was in and enter another bldg.

Here is a link that has the article copy and pasted.
I searched google archives and there appears to be maybe 2 other articles but they are pay per view.

In her amended declaration, the administratrix alleged:
"On February 1, 1973, the deceased [13-year-old Rose Marie] had a math class from 12:00 to 12:50. Thereafter, she remained in the same classroom for her next class, an English Class which was to be taught by the Defendant, Mrs. Kenneth R. McGill. During the ten minute break from 12:50 to 1:00 P.M. between the Math and English classes, Miss Levandoski left her books in and on her desk and her coat and her purse on the top of her desk and clearly within the visibility of any person in the classroom; she left the classroom at this time and was not seen alive again."

That's why I posted it. A car that was reported in the area of the school on the day Rose disappeared was used in an attempted kidnapping in Pascagoula, a few miles east as well as an attempted St. Martin kidnapping. The case has been reopened, but most of the witnesses have moved or are died.Help bring Janie Sanders' murderer to justice.

I wish there was more info to be found on the internet Himmie. When I was looking for background info to add to Rose's thread I saw Janie Sander's facebook page.
Do you think those might be connected?

Nevermind I saw the other thread you started Himmie
for anyone that wants to read the other thread about another cold case in the same area (interesting reading):
MS- Janie Sanders, 1975 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community
These two thread may prove to be connected in the future.

Darren, the detective working Janie's case, says that they do have similarities but that at this time they don't have enough evidence linking the two cases.
Personally I think that they could be related, but there's no proof. Darren says it would be scary to think of two child killers working the same county at the same time.Help bring Janie Sanders' murderer to justice.

The Sanders case and this case sound similar and are related, imho.
