"That don't mean I wanted to die, though"
What a selfish bitch. And no, I didn't say that to get attention. It's my opinion. I would do anything for my brother. For me she's as guilty as the murderers of Sylvia.
It's always been my personal opinion that Hubbard was more culpable for Sylvia's death than either Hobbs or John B. The major head trauma that was the primary cause of death to Sylvia Likens, was mostly carried out by Gertrude and Hubbard in the last 24 hours of her short life. So much more had to have happened on the last night before she died. For what its worth, at least Bowman got this point right by saying," the evidence presented at the trial didn't match the damage done to the body of Sylvia Likens". That statement was made at his 3rd book signing at the library back in November.
They were several petitions signings and protest gatherings a crossed the street during Gertrude's parole hearings. It was reported that a local man threw a dirty mattress up against the fence of the women's prison in protest of Gertrude possibly being released.
I wonder if Jenny and Mr. New stayed in touch over the years? He was present the day when her sister's Memorial was dedicated back in 2001.
The apartment building where Benny Likens was found( 2 weeks after he died), is only about 11/2 miles from his sister's memorial at Willard Park. Sylvia,Benny,and Betty Likens Matheson died in buildings/houses within a 2 mile radius of another.
Some of the News outlets didn't get this story completely right. Paula was only a Teachers Aide, which I believe doesn't require a college degree. She was terminated for Lying on her application as being the official cause for dismissal. Nonetheless, her past caught up with her.
Just another bizarre coincidence, the house at 3850 E. New York St. and Gertrude Baniszewski came into the world in the year 1928. Both will be forever linked to one of the darkest chapters in Indianapolis History.
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.
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.
