    Detectives Search for Clues after Human Remains Found

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

    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.

    This past weekend I was at the Queenston-Lewiston Bridge traveling into the USA from Canada, and I saw Debra Spickler's missing poster on the wall. I hadn't heard of the case before, and something about her really struck me, so I looked into it once I got home.

    To me it seems obvious that her case must be linked to the disappearances/murders of the other young girls in that area from that decade, and to the two suspects that have been mentioned. It's a shame that the remains discovered a few months ago won't provide any sort of closure to Debra's family, or the other families affected by those CT disappearances.

    I suppose that I don't really have too much to say on this subject other than to just note that Debra's poster is still being circulated, and that the case really touched me. Hoping for information and answers alongside you guys.

    I grew up in Mystic and Deborah was in my brother's class. When she disappeared, the talk was that she had run away. I've always wondered what happened to her and how her life may have turned out. For some reason, I googled her name today and found this. I am so sorry about your sister and hope that someday, you may find an answer as to what happened to her.

    I wonder if it is possible if Molly Bish's killer could have done this?

    The state is offering a $150,000 reward for any information that may help police solve any of the mysteries of what happened to three girls missing from the Vernon area for 40 years or more.

    "Something that may have seemed insignificant to someone back then may be important information for us to have today," Tolland State's Attorney Matthew Gedansky said Thursday at a press conference at Vernon Town Hall.

    Gedansky also announced the formation of a special Tolland County cold case task force that will handle any new tips that come in and also review the voluminous files of the three missing girls Debra Spickler, Janice Pockett and Lisa White.

    I was raised in an area something like that. There were very few outsiders and when there were, everyone knew it. I would think that over the span, it was someone who lived there or remotely close. I believe they were comfortable and built a routine.
