The coal bin access door can be seen in this photo by the end back porch. It was in the far right corner of the basement. If only,... What If ??

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday. I always wondered who took this photograph.

The police never recovered the Bible and Jewelry Box of Sylvia Likens. After hearing the testimony of her sister, I always wondered if Leroy New sent detectives back to the house for one last look. Did Sylvia hide her few personal items she owned and they were never found?, or perhaps Gertrude took them away towards the very end. Either way, her parents were robbed of not even having any physical possessions to remember their daughter by.

A very emotional moment at her sister's gravesite. Gloria Alred and Dianna's daughter are standing beside her at this ceremony. Dianna Likens Knutson told her sister Sylvia this." I still miss you Siss, I miss you so much,... and I know I will see you again one day in Heaven, along with my husband Paul".

The William Reeves mentioned in this article, also attended the 50th Sylvia Likens Memorial gathering in Lebanon. He still helps maintain Sylvia's gravesite in Lebanon.

(Just a observation), none of the windows have curtains, only the old style pull down window shades. The shades are drawn up on the living room and bedroom where Sylvia died. However they are closed in the window of the bedroom on the right upstairs.

Leroy New lost only 2 murder cases in his long stellar career as a Marion County prosecutor. The one living defense attorney that represented that defendant was present at Bowman's 3rd book signing in the Irvington library. Bowman pointed him out in the audience. The elderly man with a distinguished looking bowtie, simply acknowledged Bowman's statement by nodding his head. Certain members of the audience that evening were more informative about the case than the guest speaker was.

Maybe it's the sun glaring on her face, but Sylvia's hair looks a lot darker in this photo. The poofy and fluffed up hair styles were popular in the 1960's.

This would've been the duplex house Sylvia Likens and her family lived at when she celebrated her last Birthday on January 3,1965. I can't help but wonder what her last Birthday present was?? The following month in February ,the Likens family packed up and moved to Long Beach California.

Yes, Al does the Irvington Histoical/ghost tours every Friday and Saturdays during the month of October. All proceeds from the tours go to local food banks and needy families at Christmas. They're well worth going on and are fun as well.
