1976 Plainfield High School graduate, Mary Ann Higginbotham's body was found in a barrel in White Lick Creek in 1979. Does anyone recall any thing about this case?

I went to school with Mary Ann. She was shot point blank range, like a hit man would do. Last I heard her boyfriends body was never found. It was believed that her boyfriend had been working for that bunch back then that ran the chop shops with vehicles that were stolen. He wanted to get out of it and had told the bosses. Somehow we figured that caused the killing of Mary Ann. I have moved all over but, if there is any thing new that someone could add, I am sure it would be greatly appreciated.

I recently found a whole thread on the websleuths forum discussing Mary Ann and Tim. Very interesting.

My sister Sherry was good friends with Mary Ann in high school. We were just teenagers then. My sister has since passed away and always said that it was drug related.

I think those involved in the Higginbotham/Willoughby murder/disappearance are the same individuals responsible for the Burger Chef Murders in Speedway.

So,whatever happened to the two miscreants indicted by a grand jury in 1983 for Higginbotham's murder,Kellams and Tomasik?

Who did Tim really work for? Was there any prominent individuals involved higher up the food chain with respect to the auto-theft ring? Someone's palms were being greased in Hendricks County in those days because for decades brothels were allowed to operate with seemingly total impunity. I can't help but wonder what else was being allowed to operate within the county as well with that very same impunity.
