Greg Ballard is still the current Mayor of Indianapolis. He was a young teenager when Sylvia died in 1965. He grew up in the Brightwood neighborhood of Indlps. He's a very friendly and engaging person to have a conversation with. The Mayor is very active in community oriented events.

Ricky had a good life, why take advantage of it? Someone who has the time to hurt and damage a young girl, is absolutely disgusting to be honest. Sylvia was a girl growing up, talking about boys, and enjoying her life, then this happend.

The Church the girls attended on Easter back in 1965 was a Pentecostal church. Some of the other churches they went to in Indianapolis were 1) The Christian church on E. 16th St. 2) The Charity Tabernacle on S. Tibbs ( where here uncle Leroy attended) 3) Grace Memorial Baptist Church on N. Alabama St. This photo was used in the 1966 trial.

Congrats to the Arsenal Tech Titans for winning the 2014 Indiana State High School Basketball Championship. Their first state title in their 102 year history of being a local High School. I didn't attend Tech, but had many friends that did.

After this engaging incident, I wonder if Dave Brady showed up at the women's prison when Paula was released?

Wished we knew what year this was taken? A educated guess might be 1960. A interesting year on that timeline of addresses,

Dianna would be the girl third row from the right, fourth photo. Someone sent this to Abbi awhile back, maybe two years ago, and I forgot I had it. We don't know who sent it, and I can't verify 100 percent that it's her, but Doug and Abbi agree it is a very strong possibility that is is Dianna, and that she resembles Sylvia.

Nelson Price who wrote this article is also a local author who has written some of his own books. Nelson was at the book signing back in October which also included Forrest Bowman, Dick Cady, Robert Snow and Gary Ledbettter. After briefly talking to Forrest Bowman about his new book, Nelson commented about his work assignments to the Women's Prison in Indlps. of which this article is about. Nelson did not initially recognize who Gertrude was when he first arrived to interview these inmates. He stated that Gertrude's first comment was, " You don't know who I am do you". All the authors at the book signing were very personable and engaging when talking about their writings and careers.

Aw...Look at Paula using big words in the wrong context, you can't be complacent without being smug so there was no reason to say "smug complacency" smart one, and just to think we have looney tunes like this teaching our children.

A small footnote about Addison Cleaners. further research indicates that sometime towards the end of 1964, this business moved down the street to a new location. Addison Cleaners relocated at 2119 W. Washington St. near Belmont Ave. Lester and Betty Likens were still listed as the business proprietors. Not sure why they moved their business to this new location. A few months later they moved to California. There is no listing for Addison Cleaners the following year.

The records show that both Betty and Lester worked at (or possibly owned) this small Cleaners located at 2542 west Washington St. Indlps. in 1964. Addison Cleaners is on the NW corner of Addison and W. Washington St. This would've been their last place of employment before moving to California in Feb. of 1965. Lester Likens work at a least 4 different dry cleaners/laundry businesses prior to 1965. Lux Laundry, Gregg Cleaners,Lawrence Cleaners, and Addison Cleaners. This location is only a few streets away from where the likens previously lived at on S. Harris St. in the 1950's.Addison Cleaners went out of business in 1965.
