    Does anyone know where a picture can be found of Edward E. Surrett. There was a witness in the Margaret Dodd case. A little girl who said the man was tall, long side burns and looked a lot like Fonzi. Wondering if
    Surrett fits that description.

    I am not certain if there is a photo of Edward Surratt available.

    Thanks Richard-will try. I remember the Margaret Dodd case well. I was living near Beckley at the time. It doesn't say this on the Doe network but a little girl, outside playing, did get a glimpse of someone pushing Margaret into a car. The girl was hynotized (sp) but the only thing she could come up with was he still looked like Fonzi on Happy Days. As far as I know, nothing has ever been found out about what happened to her. Thanks again .

    Here is the information that I could find on Margret. Since she did not have her own thread here on Websleuths, I started one. You can access it with this link:

    Margret Dodd, 27, Missing since September 7, 1977 from Beaver, WV

    Margret Dodd
    Missing since September 7, 1977 from Beaver, West Virginia.
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics


    Date Of Birth: May 8, 1950
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 27 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'6" - 168 cm; 141 lbs - 64 kg
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Brown eyes; brown hair

    Circumstances of Disappearance


    Margret Dodd was abducted when she stopped her vehicle at a vacant service station lot four miles from her place of employment at the Cardinal State Bank near Beckley. Witnesses claim to have heard her screaming while she was being forced into an unidentified vehicle. While there were no descriptions of the alleged kidnappers, police were initially searching for three men believed to be involved with the case.

    An ex-convict, James Hendree of Akron, Ohio, claimed he had kidnapped Dodd, or was at least in contact with the kidnappers. He called Dodd's parents, also of Akron, several times, the first time being on September 22nd. At first he claimed that she was being held outside of Ohio, then he claimed she was being held in Akron. He demanded a ransom of $10,000.

    Arrangements were made for the alleged kidnapper to meet with one of Dodd's relatives so that the money could be collected and Dodd's whereabouts revealed. An FBI agent, posing as Dodd's father, met with the extortionist. The trip ended in Barberton, about seven miles outside of Akron, when Hendree held a concealed object to the FBI agent's head, claiming it was a gun. He threatened to shoot if he wasn't given the ransom money. Another agent, hidden in the car, ordered Hendree to drop the weapon. When he failed to do so, the second agent fired, killing Hendree. The concealed weapon was later discovered to be a pencil.

    Investigators acknowledged that there was a possibility that Hendree only posed as the kidnapper to extort the money.

    Margret Dodd is originally from Akron, Ohio but was living near Beckley, West Virginia at the time of her disappearance, while she lived in West Virginia with her husband.

    Some agencies list her disappearance date as September 8, 1977 and spell her name "Margaret". She has never been located.
