    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

    • I knew John in my hometown of Sycamore. When I was in 8th grade and he was a freshman I danced with him several times at a sock hop and thought he was wonderful. He was good looking and charming and fun. I was smitten! He was the first boy ever to ask me out but my dad wouldn’t allow it because I was too young. He was a bag boy at the grocery store where we shopped and I remember us exchanging “looks.” The death of Maria Ridulph affected our whole town; later it affected my life as a mother and consequently my children’s lives too. Eventually, it was believed a truck driver passing through had taken her, but he was deceased by the time the police saw him as a suspect. To find out the murderer was one of us rocked me to my core. John, it’s time to pay the piper.

      • John, Mary is right, it is time to pay the piper. as a recent mother of a homicide victim in DeKalb, i am up for court 2 yrs after the crime and i cann’t fanthom the thought of you getting away with this for 50 yrs. Even as hard as this is for Maria Ridulph’s family, going thru opening wounds which is devastating, I ask that you be strong because Maria so deserves this day where people know what happened. 50 yrs later or 2 yrs later, it doesn’t matter as long as he doesn’t do to another what he did to Maria. doesn’t matter if he is in his 70’s, once a murderer always a murderer. I am grateful that this is happening, some people never get closure after a lifetime. Maria-god bless you. you are not forgotten. He has to pay the price, its way long coming.
        My name is Diane Keller, My daughter is the 2010 murder victim in DeKalbe at NIU. Her name is Toni Keller and I am proud!
