Maybe they’ll find Mary Boyle…

Mary Boyle is a famous Irish missing child: she vanished in 1977 at the age of six, while walking from her uncle’s farm to a neighbor’s home. We have a pretty good idea as to what she’d look like if she were still alive today, because she has an identical twin. However, Mary is presumed dead.

Well, the police — the New York City police at that — are now saying they know know who killed Mary and they know where her body is.

Me — well, I hope they’re right but I’m not holding my breath. I’ve seen a lot of “We’ve almost solved such-and-such ancient case!” things deflate and fade from the headlines.

    You really should have a “Middle-Eastern Man or Woman” abducts a child thread, with Cliffnotes that state that they are never coming back/

      That phenomenon is not confined to the Middle East. If your kid gets taken to Japan or South Korea, you’re screwed too. And only one child has been returned from Brazil, and that was after his abducting mother died.

        David Olhson was also returned from Brazil, but his dad wasn’t Brazilian.

    This will someone make appear in a very bad light. But I’m not yet sure whom.

    Not that there aren’t a lot of breakthroughs that go nowhere, but specifically I seem to recall a handful of years ago there was a development in the missing women of Ireland case (s) including Annie Bridget McCarrick and I’ve heard nothing since. I know I watched one of two Datelines or something on it and the interviews with her father will haunt me forever. It’s not just Ireland, I just chose that as a reference, but it seems sometimes LE jumps the gun and it gets in the news and then……….nothing. I do hope any and all cold cases are solved but I get worn out trying to be optimistic sometimes…..

      I will have a look. I didn’t know you covered European cases!
