Peru,Indiana is known for 2 attractions. 1) The birthplace of Cole Porter. 2) The circus capital of the world. They have a grand circus festival in downtown Peru every July in the summer. As the article above states, ...the sheriff of Miami County (Lowell Harmon) and his wife let Gertrude spruce up the jail, sheriff's office and living quarters which in many small towns is located by or connected to the jail. The sheriff and his wife also permitted and accompanied Gertrude while they attended the annual Circus festival during the 1971 trial. The courthouse and jail are located on the downtown square in Peru where the Circus Festival also takes place. :?

John J:R looks a zombie...Hubbards eyes are blacken too. Hobbs doesn't look engaged at all. It must been a conversation Hobbs and John J:R didn't like.

Tuesday morning October 26th 1965." A former classmate recalls" seeing Richard Hobbs sitting by himself in the bleachers of the gymnasium with his head looking down. Whatever thoughts were going through his mind or whether he was searching for a lost conscience, his Time to do the Right Thing had ran out. Shortly around 6:00 Pm Sylvia Likens died, and Hobb's legacy for his part in this crime would be written and set for all time in History.

Wonder what this sidebar conversation is all about. Hubbard looks to be slightly confused in the photo.

You can't help but wonder, who are these 2 people standing on the porch at the house at 3850?? It appears to be very late at night on Oct. 26.1965. The individual on the right looks to possibly be a woman.

The old community center at Brookside Park was a gathering place for many east side teenagers during the 1960's. Eastside High Schools such as Tech and Howe would hold school dances and other functions and events at the Community Center. During the summer months, the Indlps. Parks Dept. would also hold functions and various activities at the Community Center for the neighborhood kids as well. It's a pretty safe bet that Sylvia and Jenny probably was in this building during the summer of 1965 while staying at the Baniszewski's.

There's some interesting information in this article. One of the members on the 1985 parole board was John J. Barton. He was the Mayor of Indianapolis from 1964-68. He would've been the acting Mayor in 1965 when Sylvia was killed.

The area behind the Memorial has change since its dedication in 2001. The Fire Station next to Willard Park has since claimed some of the land behind the memorial. They installed a tall chain link fence near the memorial site. I'm not sure when the bench behind the Memorial was installed.

A interesting contrast in comparing the outcome of parole decisions concerning infamous murder cases in Indiana. Gertrude Baniszewski was paroled 20 years later after her crime. The other infamous case of a torture murder being that of 12 year old Shanda Sharer. The 2 main perpetrators of that crime are still in prison as of today.Melinda Loveless and Toni Lawrence were about 16 years old when they tortured and killed Shanda Sharer. Gertrude was 37 when she committed her crime. Go Figure

I never noticed this before, could the lady on the far left standing in front of the garage door of the funeral home be Lucille Allen? Sure looks a lot like her .I also wonder if the guy walking behind Sylvia's casket is Rev. Louis Gibson. who gave the eulogy?? Sylvia's grave plot was donated by the Stevens Family. Their son Craig was killed in 1968 during the Vietnam War. He is buried next to Sylvia on the right side of hers.

[quote="moelhugo"]Why is there a Canadian flag next to gravestone?[/quote Unfortunately, I don't know who left the little Canadian flag, or what special meaning it had. Nonetheless, it had a special sentiment by whom ever placed it there. A little footnote on this cemetery where Jenny is buried at. Remember the little girl named Anita Ayers who live in the neighborhood by 3850 and was molested by her stepdad? Anita's Mom and sister Pam are also buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. The cemetery is located just south of Indianapolis in northern Johnson County.

Yeah that is kinda odd. Maybe someone from Canada visited the grave or Jenny's husband had some sort of ties with Canada.
