    She was alive when placed into the water, then drowned...As if used, and then cast aside. It's one of many disheartening aspects to Christine's murder.

    I think it now necessary to research these specific cases as well to see if anyone was ever arrested, convicted, etc. Too coincidental not to. I really appreciate all of this info, so many new leads now.
    PM me. I lived 2 doors down from Suzie Mages' grandmother when I was a kid, and we were good friends. There are still family members around where I live, and I should be able to find out whatever happened with that case.

    Regarding the death of Barbara Marsh

    Dallas Morning News 11/17/1977 - Police Charge Girl's Mother in Drowning.
    Dallas Morning News 12/6/1977 - Grand Jury Indicts Mother in Barbara Sue's Murder.

    I still haven't been able to find if Carrie Marsh was convicted or not. Police seem to indicate in news articles that the cases (Suzie Mages, Ladina McCoy & Barbara Marsh) had alot of similarities but that was prior to the Carrie Marsh indictment.

    I wonder if they ever thought that the Navarro Child Skeleton was connected.

    Well it looks like she was sentenced in April 1978 but I don't know for how long. The record I found from Dallas County gave a code of JCJP= (Plea of not guilty, found guilty by the Jury and sentenced by the Jury.) There is an appeal on file that gives her birthdate/1938 and says she is age 70 now but it is not viewable unless you pay $. Could she still possibly be going through appeals? I wouldn't think so.

    A newspaper article I found says that the mother killed her because her boyfriend told her she had to choose, him or the child. So, she killed her own child & threw her in Lake Ray Hubbard. We can always hope she is still rotting in jail. Barbara's cause of death was blunt force.

    Barbara's case is certainly not linked to the others but Suzie, Ladina and the Navarro Unknown still could be.

    Went to Modrall today. My camera battery was dead, but I did locate little Corsicana Doe and will go back and take a picture of the grave next week.

    Just a suggestion, but could someone in the area contact local LE and see if they could reopen this as a cold case?

    Gabby, would your contact at the SO be interested in doing this? At least maybe get her listed on NamUs and/or the doenetwork. I don't know if a sketch was ever made of what she might of looked like.

    I can call her tomorrow. I am not sure what if anything can be done. Worth looking in to. How's the stuff you sent to the Daily Sun working out? If we could get that started maybe NCSO would be more willing to help out

    Here are the pictures made today.

    Stone furnished by the County of Navarro to mark her grave





    Stone donated by an unknown "friend"





    Picture of the gravesite:





    I noticed also, her grave has settled and has a rectangular sink hole (you can see it if you look carefully in the picture where the 'greenest grass is'... needs to be filled in with dirt before it gets worse.

    Thanks for posting these, Gabby.

    So heart-breaking...I'm glad someone took it upon themselves to at least give her a proper marker.

    There were other child-murders in Texas around the same time, '76 to '77, mostly in the Houston/Galveston area. Suzanne Bower, 12, for instance, who wasnt found until a few years later. Henry Lee Lucas claimed he killed her, but then again he claimed that about everyone.

    Judygirl and I are hoping to get this case brought back into the spotlight and maybe we can get some answers... This child deserves a name...
