This time it’s Louisa May Merrifield, hanged in 1953 for killing the old woman she was supposed to be taking care of.

      heads-up: the website Jose linked to tries to infect your computer with a virus

    i just wanted to say meagan that one of your updates from the 18th i think, Greta Laura Riles…i found an unidentified female found in tulsa that’s somewhat similar to greta. over at doe network, the case file # is 775UFOK.

    the timing may be too close to call, but the silimarities were enough that i shot am email over to someone at the medical examiners office last night.. since greta wasn’t reported missing until years later it would have been tough to ID greta wherever she is.

    if i hear anything i’ll let you know.

    i’ve been pouring over unidentified/missing websites for years now and it sure would be nice to finally give an unknown person their name back. this one probably isn’t a match (my luck isn’t that good)
    but hey, it’s friday and i’m feeling frisky!

      Indeed it would be nice, especially for Greta’s family.

    Would make Meaghan and company happy, and their jobs much easier, if tabloids could solve the world. My elderly Grandpa used to read these things every week, three or four of them, and so did I cause they were there. Fascinating, but very odd.
