    "It appears to have been a botched small-town police investigation that led the Ontario Provincial Police to first reopen - and then charge someone in - the case of a little girl's mysterious disappearance 38 years ago. Earlier this week in London, Ont., OPP detectives arrested and charged Barry Vincent Manion with the first-degree murder and abduction of 12-year-old Katherine May Wilson, known as Kathy to her family, of Kirkland Lake in Northern Ontario.
    Now 60, Mr. Manion is slated to appear in court today in nearby Haileybury."

    "KIRKLAND LAKE, Ont. -- On a warm October night in 1970, a northern Ontario girl went missing after a trip to the local store and post office. Katherine Wilson, 12, was never seen again after that night in Kirkland Lake, a gold mining town of about 8,500.
    On Wednesday, Ontario Provincial Police from Kirkland Lake charged a 60- year-old London, Ont., man, Barry Manion, with first-degree murder in the girl's disappearance.
    Manion, due in court in nearby Haileybury on Friday, is also charged with abducting a person under 14 years.
    Little was immediately known about the London man, but police expected to have more to say on the case today.
    Father to face sentencing circle over girls' deaths."

    Wasn't sure if this was in cold cases or not, i did a search and couldn't come up with anything for "Katherine Wilson".
    I'm glad they were able to catch her killer, especially with 38 years that had passed. :behindbar

    They reopened the case in 2006, so I am not sure if the reqard money would be claimed.

    I am just very glad that after all this time, the family will have justice for this little girl.

    Her mother and family never lost hope that someone would be charged and arrested with the crime.

    Now hopefully the criminal may be able to tell the family where her body is so they can give her a proper funeral.

    But after all this time, I am hoping that she can be found.

    Great work on behalf of the OPP, this is great news to start the new year with.

    He may have been a coward, but he saved the province money.
