[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.

You can't help but wonder, if the Bible Sylvia is holding in this photo, is the same one she took with her at that fatal stay at the baniszewski house? Sylvia's Bible and small jewelry box were never recovered. Where and what happened to these items??? A possibility to consider concerning this matter. Sylvia's Bible could have been hid somewhere deep inside that house at 3850 New York St. and never found. There forth, the Bible and jewelry box would have went down with the house when it was demolished in 2009. Another plausible theory to considered is this .Perhaps Sylvia didn't covertly hide them at all. Maybe Gertrude took them from her at the very end just for spite. As with many other pieces of this case, we'll probably never know for sure.

A brief moment of happiness and elation for Jenny Likens Wade. They seem to have been few and far between in her short life. "Once again", her family would get the short end of the Justice Stick. A few weeks later Gertrude was paroled. Then the woman hugging her in this photo (Thomi Elmore), would later embezzle the donations sent in to help pay for Jenny's medical bills. She had to have felt devastated and portrayed once again by yet another cruel reality set upon her. :(

This photograph gets to me every time I see it. All and all, the picture tells the story of which no words can describe. Just thinking out loud, but the man with the sunglasses on sure looks a lot like Mr. Leroy New. I'm sure at some point during this event, Mr. New and Jenny shared a moment together.

Nothing touches my heart like Jenny's relationship with Leroy New. He gave her a second home for awhile, and a new leg brace.

Leroy New was a quite a humanitarian in helping to care for Jenny after the trial. Her standard of living greatly improved. Evidently,.. she must of gotten homesick and decided to return and live with her family back in Lebanon,Ind. Her parents divorced in 1967.

surprisingly ...the showing and funeral of Sylvia Likens was a open casket funeral. She was dressed with a long sleeve blouse to hide the many bruises and cigarette burns that marked her arms. ( I'm guessing), the staff at the funeral home did the best they could in covering up the massive damage to her face and neck. :( Louis Gibson delivered the eulogy at Sylvia's funeral. She briefly attended his church on S. Tibbs Ave. with her cousins and uncle Leroy Likens.

I wonder if they're talking about selective memory in this photo?

Mayonnaise cake? That doesn't sound to good. The women during that time must have eaten well if they got to eat cake and pies. I don't think it's like that anymore in a prison cafeteria. Gertrude said her kids visited her....I wonder if all her kids would come to see her? Well not baby Den of course.

Betty's brother Wallace also had a sad ending to his life. Betty lost her father in 1966, along with enduring the pain of the trial for her daughter's murder. :(

Benny is in a section called the flats which is west of the section Sylvia's in. Rex Likens and some other Likens are also at Oak Hill cemetery. They are some Martin's buried in the same section Sylvia's in. I don't know if they're related to Sylvia's grandmother whose name I believe was( Iva Dotty Martin). The gravesite directly to the right of Sylvia's in the photo with the American flag by it, was a young man who was killed in the Vietnam war back in 1968
A quick correction from my previous post. Rex likens is buried in Lebanon, but at another cemetery. Sylvia's grandma Martin is Buried at Oak Hill Cemetery.

There's some misconception as to how Lucille Allen is related to Sylvia and Jenny. some articles and websites list her as being a great aunt. However the records indicate she was actually their 1st. cousin. Lucille Allen was the oldest daughter of Jesse likens Abbott (Lester's older sister). there is a big age disparity of 18 years between Lucille and Sylvia. because of the age difference, she probably felt more like a aunt than a cousin.
