One of the small children who was locked in a closet as her mother was stabbed 70 times and strangled has been in contact with the Pekin Police Department in an effort to move along the investigation into her motherís death, said VonRohr. Maynor, 23, was found dead at 715 N. Fourth St., Pekin, on May 31, 1974. Her two daughters, ages 2 and 3 at the time, were locked in the closet by the murderer, according to Pekin Times archives. Police developed two suspects in the murder, but they have long since left town. There was not enough evidence to charge them at the time.

There has been no new information in the case for many years, but the department does have some people whom they are seeking in the hope of solving the case, said VonRohr.

Police are asking that anyone with information regarding either murder to call the department or Crime Stoppers. Crime Stoppers offers a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and indictment of the perpetrators.

The house on 5th street is the childer house. Jimmy Childers supposedly murdered his mom, step dad and little brother Warren. Jimmy didn't kill himself he is serving life in prison. IM not to sure he killed them the whole case was shoddy police work. There wasn't one piece of physical evidence Linking him to the crime. The police took a 17 year old kid to an interrogation room and terrorized him for hours until they got a confession out of him. There is another tread on pekin topix title unsolved murders in pekin there are some Interesting facts on there about this case. I was young when this happened and always grew up thinking Jimmy Childers was high on drugs and flipped out and murdered his family. After reading that tread I have serious doubts his guilt.

I've lived here all my life I haven't seen, heard or known about ANYTHING that is haunted or seen any ghosts. Halloween makes everything more exciting.

I believe judge Green house I believe is the white stucco house on the corner of 5th and willow, by willow park with the round front porch. Its either judge green or judge Reardon I can't remember for sure but I do know for sure its one of the two.

He didn't kill himself but did murder his mom, stepdad and his brother, Actually MY brother just dropped him off from softball practice right before he did this . It was back in 1982 I believe. His last name is Childs.
