I was in 8th grade when Patty was murdered. My daddy was in a position in the local government to view pictures taken by Randy Morgan and I happenened to walk in the room while he was showing them to my daddy. Oh my goodness, I had nightmares for years. A friend of my parents was a nurse where they took Michael and she said she thought he was was guilty as sin but they sure were going to have a hard time proving it. Just so sad for everyone. I understand the evidence was kept but the testing for DNA couldn't be done because of contamination. johnny Baldwin was a wonderful policeman and I know he did all he could do to solve it. I moved away from Greenhills over 40 years ago, but fond memories still exist of my growing up years.

I was in the 6th grade at Greenhills Junior High in the annex.
The Rebholz case was the first murder I ever remembering following in the Cincinnati Enquirer. I did not know her boyfriend was arrested in 2001. Did he go to trial?

Michael W did it.The police totally screwed up while they were processing the evidence.And the quality of policing in Greenhills has not improved any time since.

At the time,Michael W was sent away to a military style boys school.He returned to GHS 2 years later.

Patty broke up with him after meeting another boy that night at a dance in Greenhills.

Craig (Marshall) Smith likely murdered Miss Rebholz in 1963. Cops missed him, blindly focused on her boyfriend Mike Wehrung… Smith fits profile, he's an introverted sociopath,,,
And now he's coming for YOU!

Marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled. But whoremongers and adulterers, God will judge [right Jennifer?]
It is what it is, Smitty, you know? Wish you could hear me crack my gum as I chuckle about how you've ruined the perfect strangers life... Thank you

THIS CASE IS ALMOST TOO EASY;; CRAIG SMITH LIKELY MURDERED PATTY REBHOLZ W THE FENCE POST, BASHED HER BRAINS IN AFTER BEING REJECTED BY HER, JEALOUS RAGE,, SMITTY IS NOW 67, HAS ADMITTED TO BEING AT THE CRIME SCENE THATV NIGHT, AND IS A SOCIOPATH AND PSYCHPATH.... RIGHT SMITTY? ;)

Actually, Mike W didnt do it; likely that Craig Smith did; he put himself at the crime scene same time as Patty, introverted loner at the time, sociopath and psychopath later in life,,,
right, Smitty?
