Hi Deb and Pat,

This is Cathy. I thought about Diane last night
11-2-12. I was 10 when Diane passed. Deb and I hung around in grade school at St.Mary's.
It is hard to believe nothing has ever been resolved.
I have moved back home after my Dad passed in 2009 to live with my Mom.
I would very much like to go visit Diane out of respect. I just lost my brother Paul 6 months ago. He was 52 .It is such a healing process.

Deb and Pat my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sincerely
Cathy Grennier

Cathy, it is so nice to hear from you. I think of you often. So sorry to hear of your loss of your father and Paul. SO many memories I have of the wonderful times I shared with you and your family. Thank you so much for remembering Diane and your thoughts and prayers. Hugs to you and your mom. I will look you up when I come back to Wisconsin for a visit.
Friends forever,

Boy it is nice to read things from you. I too miss Diane. We were all at our house shooting pool on Judy's birthday the night before Diane died.
Remember our home phone was even tapped and I had a private officer following me to and from work for months.(Sorry to hear of the passing of Dennis).
I was going for physical therapy when I (thought) I saw him leaving the same area (I won't say more because these things are too private) but did he lose a leg? I saw a guy, looked just like him. It made me sad. Carol
Carol,
Thank you for staying in touch. Yes all of our phone lines were tapped back then. Detectives and police officers did work around he clock trying to protect the girls that lived in fear. Thank you for sharing your memories with Diane. We miss our brother Dennis so much. Hope you are doing well now and please feel free to share more memories. You can also email us at [email protected] if you want to talk privately too. God bless you Carol. My mom valued her friendship with your mother.

My two friends were murdered from Milw. Cheryl and Corky, the same time and way as Diane. Can't believe the police have not solved this. I hope the evil monster is no longer living. I think of my friends often.

Hi Lynn, So sorry for your loss. We have read so many articles about Cheryl and Corky. We even met with their families many years ago. Just finished reading an old article that was in the old paper that was suggested that Diane and Cheryl and Corky may have been killed by the same person.

My family used to talk about this death. Someone in my family thought another rapist and murderer by the name of Rick Greiner was a suspect. This person in my family always believed the mo was exactly the same. Don't know if I spelled the name of this rapist and murderer correctly. Somehow, and I'm unsure of how they knew, but many in my family knew this Rick. I suspect they graduated with or went to school with Rick and Ms. Olkwitz. I'm not even sure of whom and where this Rick perpitrated his rape and murder but I know he is serving life in prison in Wisconsin. It seemed to me my family had inside knowledge on these people. Just putting this out there. Someone might want to do a DNA check. If the story is true, this Rick's DNA would be on file, if the other guys didn't match maybe this Rick guys would. Maybe Ms. Okwitz and this Rick knew one another.
I hope this case is solved.

Look him up in the Wisconsin State Prison Directory. He's short. If you look at one of the cases you mentioned earlier the woman was dragged. This could be an indication the perp was short. Look into these cases: Mary Ellen Kaldenberg 17, Kenosha 2/1967, Stephanie Caseberg Milwaukee (Franklin) 1969, Terri L Erdmann, 6/24/1971 Little River Parkway---close to Menomonee Falls. Kleist June 10, 1972 Racine, Tina Davidson March 27 1973-last seen March 16, 1973. All these cases seem related. I wonder if the daughter of the police officer thought Rick Grennier was a suspect. I bet he was. The reason I'm putting this out here is because of a belief a close family member had about this murder. If this Rick Grennier did these murders he should never be let out of prison. It looks like by his appeals and the program he's in that is his goal. May God bring justice and peace to these families.

Thanks Tonya. I didn't realize that Herrington's wife gave birth to a little girl just a few days before he was arrested. How sad is that? Unfortunately, Herrington had a very strong alibi that proved he was not involved with Diane's murder. Thanks for sending the article... I found it very interest.
<quoted text>
Herrington was convicted of 3 murders in 1967 and has been in prison ever since. I don't know what other murders you all are discussing.
