Does anyone remember a child abduction and murder in Warren or there about in the 1970s? A very young girl between 9 years old and 11 was abducted ,raped and murdered.They found a young man who fit the description and he was convicted, also from Warren. He had straight long blond hair and a Gray van, There was an eyewitness ,a neighbor who saw the killer late at night and identified him in a line up.His mother swore the young man was with her at home watching TV that night.
The point is I also recall a couple of years after this incident a man with straight long blond hair was convicted and executed in Tennessee for exactly the same type of crime, A young girl had been raped and murdered just as in Michigan , and the clinger was that the Tennessee man was originally from Warren. So after all these years its been sitting in the back of my mind that a innocent person may have been convicted because of a wrongful identification .
