Murder charges in 1970 disappearance

This is the first I’ve heard of this: a man has been charged with murder in the 1970 disappearance of twelve-year-old Katherine May Wilson from Ontario. She’s not a Charley case of course, being Canadian, but she’s on the Doe Network. Apparently they expect the suspect to plead guilty. He was Katherine’s second cousin.

Many people still don’t believe you can prove murder without a body, but bodyless homicides are coming to court on practically a weekly basis nowadays. I have a whole list of them on Charley. I hope the suspect can lead police to Katherine’s body.

    It’s a lot easier to do it now, in the time of DNA and constant advances in forensic technology…wonder if that’s what finally brought him down, or if he confessed without it?
