The people in that neighborhood seem to use this parking lot as much as the church does. Parts of the basement are still beneath your feet where you're standing.

Interesting! I never knew that. Thanks for your information!

This is probably my favorite picture that someone has done of Sylvia. It's so beautiful, and I love the bird. That's a great touch!

John Hammond was Gertrude's attorney during her 1963 divorce with John Baniszewski Sr. A different lawyer represented Gertrude in her previous divorce in 1955-56 from Baniszewski. Gertrude was the one who filed in both divorces.

This must be the picture where John Dean insists Hobbs and Gertrude are or look like a couple. Personally, I don't see it, I see at spaced out, somewhat shocked 15 year old and the patented Gertrude "poor pitiful me" look. But I'm sure this is the picture he was referring to in the emails he exchanged with Denise Noe where he insists they look like a couple. He made some other off the wall comments, so whatever...

Amazing how Gertrude practically had a patent on the "poor pitiful me" look. I wonder if she looked this sad when she was rubbing a dirty diaper in Sylvia's face.

I remember this. Poor Shanda! I hope she's resting in peace now. No one else can hurt her anymore, either.

Everyone keeps saying Stephanie was the attractive one of the Ban family, but I just don't see it.

The donuts that Gertrude tried to make Sylvia eat probably were bought at this bakery by Bradly & New York st. Shirley's birthday cake from early July of 1965 was most likely purchased here as well. The bakery in 1965 was called Boyden's Bakery.

I think I remember reading somewhere that Sylvia liked to eat at White Castle. I sure did. I'm from Indiana, and I enjoyed White Castles very much! :D

During the early and mid 1960's many IPS schools (including IPS. 62) had skating parties at Rollerland. Both Sylvia and Jenny attended IPS. 62 on 10th & Wallace in the early 1960's. I always wondered if they ever were able to attend one of their school's skating parties while in the 7th & 8th grade.

The house to the left of 1726 was the neighbor and friend of Lester Likens. Delmar Burton lived at 1724 Colorado Ave. Evidently Lester and Delmar stayed in touch with one another in 1965. He knew the exact location where Sylvia's parents were staying in Jacksonville Florida on October 26th 1965. Delmar Burton made the dreaded phone call to Lester Likens, informing him that his daughter had been murdered.
