Barry Vincent Manion, the killer of Katherine May Wilson, whom I referenced in this post, has pleaded guilty. He’s been sentenced to life in prison. He will be eligible for parole in ten years, but he is 61 years old now and perhaps he will be dead by then.
Manion made a full confession, saying he strangled Katherine after he wanted to have sex with her and she resisted and ran away. He’s lead police to a place where he says he disposed of the body, but due to inclement weather they haven’t begun searching yet. They may not find it. After thirty-eight years there may be very little left to find. But at least Manion’s going to prison, and Katherine’s family can have a little closure.
