Does anyone remember a little girl dying in the mid 70's at Roses trailer park? I moved away from the area in the early 80's at the age of 13, but when I was 7 we lived in the park and I played with the little girl across the street- her name was Jackie (SP?). I remember one day police coming to her trailer, and being told she died by some other kids...something about a babysitter somehow being responsible...murder or negligence? I was little and don't remember. My family didn't tell me much other than her passing away. I also remember seeing her mom out a few times after that when I rode my bike, but they soon moved away.

This has haunted me for about 36 years. I would love to have some closure on this because she was my friend- even though she was younger than I was. She was around 3-4?? The street we lived on then was called Taft Way....we lived at 31. It's the main road into the park.

If anyone knows anything about this, please let me know. Thanks !!

I found a brief article about a little girl named Jackie Schenkel, but the article is too small to read the age. She lived on Taft Way and died January 31st at her home.
