    Could all of these cases be related?

    Janice Pockett, 7, vanished in Tolland on July 26, 1973.

    Debbie Spickler, 13, of Mystic, was visiting a relative in Vernon when she disappeared from Henry Park on July 24, 1968.

    Stephanie Olisky, 15 East Windsor, 7/21/75 Found on Route 5 Critical Condition. Later dies. In East Windsor. Just two towns away from Vernon.

    Pattie Luce abducted and later found murdered from Vernon (1977?) Found deceased in Marlborough.

    Susan Larosa abducted in 1975 from Vernon found deceased a few years later south of I 84 in Vernon.

    Here is another case which has similarities to the others:
    The disappearance of Maria Florence Anjiras, 14. Missing since February 12, 1976 from Norwalk, Fairfield County, Connecticut. Maria was last seen on February 12, 1976 leaving her home on a blue English race bike. The bike was later found approximately one mile from Anjiras' home. She has not been heard from since.

    Smile22 had brought Lisa's case to my attention,a nd I was in the process of looking into some other simliar casesin the New England area.

    Mary K. Mount 10, disappeared from a park near her home in New Canaan, CT, on May 27th, 1969. Her body was later located in a very remote area near Wilton, CT on July 7th, 1969. She had been seen talking to a white man in a white car before her disappearance.

    Mary Olenchuk, 13, disappeared from her parents' vacation home in Ogunquit, ME August of '70. She was last seen parking her bike and getting into a maroon car operated by a white male in his mid-30s. Her reamins were later located in an abandoned barn near Kennebunk, ME a few months later.

    Debra Lee Horn, 11, went missing from her Allenstown, NH home on Jan 29th, 1969 after her parents allowed her to stay home alone from school, complaining of an inury to her leg resulting from a fall on ice. Her nude body was found in the trunk of an abandoned car near Sandown, NH in August of '69.

    Another case, though solved, may hold answers to other cases from the late '60s and the mid-'70s. 15 year-old Mary Lou Arruda disappeared while riding her bicycle home from a friend's home in Raynham, MA on Sept. 8th, 1978. Her remains were found tied to a tree on Nov 11th, 1978. In December, 32 year-old James Kater was arrested for Mary's abduction and murder. The day after Mary disappeared, Kater married an 18 year-old girl and went to Canada for two weeks for a "honeymoon". Kater had been released from prison in Jan of '76 after serving 6 1/2 years in prison for the rape of a 13 year-old girl.

    Lisa age 13 on left and right, Jane Doe center (2)

    Possible match?

    1. Lisa went missing in 1974, at the age of 13. Jane Doe Died in 1980 and is estimated to be 20-35. If this is Lisa would have been 19 in 1980.

    2. The photos resemble Jane Doe - especially when you consider that Lisa would be 6 years older than indicated. The nose, chin and eyebrows and face outline are a match.

    3. Lisa was 5 feet at 13, could she have grown 3" in 6 years... I think so.

    4. Lisa had worn braces and her teeth were "perfectly aligned". Jane Doe has a "slight overbite". How slight? Is it possible the braces were removed too early?

    5. Lisa is obviously a blond. Jane Doe is listed as Brown hair - this is a DISCREPANCY.

    6. Lisa was a dancer and did acrobatics. Both of Jane Doe's feet were heavily calloused.

    Don't know about this match... some things add up, others don't.

    i looked at it and the clothing the jane doe had on and the clothing lisa had on were not a match though i could send over that info to a friend who knows more about the case. our local news station does a cold case series and has a brief video on the person they just did one on lisa white. the place jane doe was found and connecticut where lisa went missing. the distance to me is to far and would have taken her quite a while to make it that far hitckhiking

    James Krater would seem to be a likely candidate for having committed some of these attacks before and after his 6 and a half year prison stretch. What was the outcome of his trial for the murder of Mary Lou Arruda? Any further information on Krater?

    I'm bumping this up, because there are new members of WS who might have some thoughts about these cases.

    Here is a great site with a lot of info about unsolved CT homicides and disappearances. Unsolved homicides and missing persons from other states are listed here as well:

    Possible connections...

    While probably not all of the cases discussed in this thread are linked to the same killer or killers, it is very likely that there are connections between them and possibly with other similar crimes in the country.

    One person is mentioned as a possible suspect in one case, although he was in jail while some of the other crimes were committed.

    Detectives Search for Clues after Human Remains Found

    http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/l...198542031.html

    By Ilana Gold | Friday, Mar 15, 2013 | Updated 7:38 PM EDT

    People in the Vernon community also wondered if the remains belonged with Lisa White, or two other girls who vanished decades ago. Janice Pockett from Tolland was last seen in July of 1973.

    Debra Spickler was visiting family in Vernon when she went missing in July of 1968. Police would not speculate on any of this.

    Investigators: Remains Found in Vernon Do Not Match Missing Girls

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.
