    Great find, Robin Hood and all..

    The latest break in Marise's case was in March of 2004, when a man named Harold Paddock told police that he believed his late ex-father-in-law had not only killed Marise, but also another little girl from Elmira, New York named Mary Simpson whose murder still remains unsolved. Elmira was about a 5 hour drive from Hazleton back in 1964. Mary was 12-years-old when she was abducted on March 15, 1964, just three days before Marise's murder. Furthermore, Mary's strangled body was found a few days later in a wooded area near Elmira on property Paddock claimed to have since learned was owned at the time by his sister?s half-brother. While this is only a speculation, police are looking into the case but not evidence has been found to prove this theory and Marise's father passed away in 2006, never knowing who ever murdered his little girl. To this day, Marise's murder still remains unsolved.

    I wonder if Harold Paddock's old dad in law was Catholic..

    I'm taking a look at some names I've picked up along the way, I shall try to link them together via ancestry. It's going to be hard if folk are half relatives but sometimes luck plays a part.

    I can't find anything of worth. Mary didn't get much news attention either, well, none I can find.
    'Theresa' was a popular Catholic name when I went to school in the early 1960's.
