I was told by a pi that years ago a little girl was tied to gas pipes behind school and rapped and beaten by 2 men not sure of the truth to this

I found it quite romantic feeling in AP when Mr. Tandy would play jazz music and light candles.

It was on a Easter Sunday she was about middle school age,her mother was a teacher at OHS .As I heard it there were several suspects. Three I believe. One was charged. 1 was child of local official and 1 was son of a doctor....the 1 boy served time. Always heard he took the entire fall and was paid off by others parents. Never heard Longfellow was haunted. Woundn't doubt it.

She was tied to the drain pipe nude on the left corner pipe at the front of the school. Yes she was beaten and raped. It was maybe 1970=1971 somewhere around there I think.

Yeah that's what I thought so it really did happen? Have always wondered if it was true. Bc this pi told me of many murders and cases he worked

There's actually several articles related to this incident available on-line though they're real generalized and give basically no detail as to what was done to the girl.'I Remember' do you recall the names of the other two boys rumored to be involved?

Yeah, I had heard that one of the boys (not the one convicted) later became a well known doctor in the community and apparently back in the 90s he committed suicide. I guess there was a rumor at the time that he had left a suicide note that said he couldn't bear the guilt of his involvement in the murder anymore, but again it was just a rumor. Does anyone know the names of the two boys who weren't convicted but suspected of being involved?

I am afraid to put the others name. But I will tell you... His father was a local surgeon and he is as well.

I don't remember if there was a picture. But several years ago Lora Wimsatt did a story on this.Not any details I don't think but they were friends. I would suppose it would be in the messenger arcives.

I would definitely like to see the Lora Wimsatt article. I've heard that supposedly the Messenger didn't cover the story at all when it happened. All of the articles available online are from the Evansville Press and they're not very detailed. Weird

I don't know if Messenger covered it or not. I just remember I saw all the police at Longfellow and of course people talking about it. My father knew the family of the boy that served time. He did say he didn't believe they would let him take all the blame for a pay off. But it sure was the hot rumor around town. I would like to see the Evansville articles myself.I have always been courious how if it was true who the guys were how the police could have not charged them .With everyone talking so heavy about it. Guess money pays.
