Thomas Collard, who was married to June Collard who went missing in 1980, has been charged with second-degree murder in her case. At the time, Thomas said June had run off with another man. Earlier this week he finally confessed to causing her death. He said he hit June during an argument and she fell, struck her head on something and died. Apparently a lot of people have suspected something like this. The Collards’
oldest middle daughter, Tammy, said she repeatedly confronted her father and demanded that he tell the truth, but he always denied everything.
Kudos to the New York police for their persistence in investigating this very old case and bringing closure to June’s children and the rest of her family.
