This week’s Flashback Friday case is Ann Marie Burr, missing from Tacoma, Washington since August 31, 1961, when she was eight years old. She was apparently abducted in the night, either lured out of or just plain taken from her house. Whatever happened, happened without waking Ann’s younger sister who shared a room with her.
Ann’s case is quite famous because of its possible connection with Ted Bundy. He lived in the area and knew her, and in spite of his youth (he was only fourteen when she disappeared) many Bundy scholars believe she was his first victim. The “did he or didn’t he?” is a pretty big topic for debate among Bundy hobbyists.
I think it’s unlikely we’ll ever know what happened. But in the unlikely event that she is still alive, Ann Marie would be 62 today.
