    IL - Michael Mansfield, 19, Rolling Meadows, 31 Dec 1975

    The family of a Rolling Meadows man who disappeared in 1975 may get some closure more than 35 years later after a Joliet man serving time in state prison confessed to his murder -- and another killing -- on his deathbed.

    Michael Mansfield, a 19-year-old college student from Rolling Meadows, was home on break on Dec. 31, 1975, when he left his home and was never seen again, a release from Rolling Meadows police said.

    Investigation of human remains at a home in Joliet that may belong to Michael Mansfield. This was a deathbed confession from the person whow committed the murder.

    Oddly enough, the deathbed confession occurred in 2011 and the home being searched, which was formerly owned by a relative of the perp has been vacant for two years. Really makes me wonder why this search didn't happen two years ago.

    Praying for Michael's family as they await answers.

    What isn't clear in the article is whether the perp told authorities the location of Michael's body. It seems more likely he didn't fess up a location or they would have searched sooner.

    This whole convoluted mess began in Lincoln, IL during the time my husband and I were in college there (Not at Lincoln College, but the Bible college on the other side of town). Four people dead because the perp was shoplifting! The misery he caused.....

    Rolling Meadows police are searching near a home northwest of Joliet for the remains of a local teenager who went missing more than 40 years after leaving his home to visit a friend.

    Police said their investigation into the 1975 disappearance of Michael Mansfield led detectives to a residence on Barber Lane in unincorporated Will County, where they are looking for remains or other evidence of his whereabouts.

    A search of an unincorporated Will County property for clues in the disappearance of a man who went missing in 1975 did not turn up any human remains...

    No human remains were located, but additional leads were developed and the investigation remains active, police said.

    Continued prayers one day Michael can be found and properly laid to rest.
