Sylvia dropped out the first time because school just wasn't for her. But the second time she enrolled with the baniszewski kids, eventually Gertrude forced her to drop out again because she was abusing her.

This little Church on the corner of 16th & Colorado St. was only I block from where the Likens family live at on 1726 Colorado St. No need to take the church bus here, since it was well within walking distance. Since Sylvia was Baptized while attending this Church, I always wondered if this is where she was given her Bible. This is a common custom among many Churches even today. The Bible of Sylvia Likens was never recovered after she died on Oct. 26th,1965.

I just want to see what they saw 50 years ago. I might sound crazy, but I just want to explore. Check out tech high school or howe high school. Smell east new york street, smell what everybody smelled in 1965. I want to take pictures at the memorial. This is what I want to do before I die


I totally understand you, ana

The Marion County Sheriff standing behind Hobbs and John B. Jr. is Deputy Dave Lewis. He had just joined the Sheriff's Dept. and this was one of his first assignments. He went on to serve 30 years as a County Sheriff before retiring. On a strange historical footnote, both the murder trials of Sylvia Likens and Dawn Stuard took place in criminal court # 2 at the city county building in Indlps. some 45 years apart.

Over the years the eastside of Indlps. has had several high profile murder cases. In general they're several factors that contribute to the high crime rate in some of these older neighborhoods. some of which are, high unemployment due to many businesses and industry closing down. Drugs and gang activity is another problem that plagues many of these older neighborhoods as well. The house where Dawn Stuard was raped and murder at was in a decent respectable blue collar neighborhood. The sick and evil bastard that raped and killed this 13 year old girl was finally caught and convicted 25 years later. If you enjoy reading true crime books, the one about this case is a pretty good read. It's called (Killers in the Family) written by Robert Snow.

The white Castle restaurant that Lester and Sylvia( most likely) went to, probably was located at Beville & E.Washington St. just east of Willard Park. That one was about 1/4 mile west of this one on Lasalle & Washington St The White Castle by Beville & Washington St. closed many years ago. White Castle hamburgers have a very distinctive smell since they are cooked on a open griddle with fine cut diced onions. The buns are placed on top of the patties during cooking process giving the a warm fresh taste. The older White Castle buildings were very small with limited seating. The newer ones built were much larger to accommodate more seating for their customers.

Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. I'd say Hobbs and Paula caught a glimpse of the photographer before he snapped this picture.

"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.
