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.).

  1. In most of these cold case murders, the police have a pretty good idea of who committed the murder almost from the very beginning. It was that way with the case of Jack McCullough, who is considered the oldest cold case defendant ever to be convicted of a murder. It occurred in Sycamore, Illinois in 1957, and he was just convicted 55 years later, in 2012. He was the chief suspect in the murder of a little girl in that town, named Maria Ridulph. He’s doing life without parole. I think the cops don’t deserve a lot of praise when they have a darn good idea of who committed these murders and they don’t do a thing about it until many decades later. Mr. McCullough is 72 years old and has lived a long life as free man, just like Lisabeth Garrett, who is 74. What’s the good of putting them in prison now when they’re probably going to die of old age in a couple of years anyway.

    • The good is that the facts should emerge, how it was done, and the people properly put away. I doubt Lisabeth Garrett is now mentally competent, but what she coerced her son to do is beyond horrific… considering the man they murdered was worth more than most men who are now living, and it is almost inconcievable they thought they could do it, and get away with it. Chester was very skilled soldier. He had to have had no clue that anything was amiss, after all you don’t go to your ex’s house to fix a dishwasher after Little League practice, and expect to be murdered by your 17 year old stepson and his mother.
