I knew John Tessier. He was the first boy who ever wanted to go out with me. He asked my father who said no because I was too young. I remember him as being tall, blonde and good looking. He and I were at a dance and danced almost every dance together. I had a wonderful time and was quite smitten with him. When Maria disappeared and months later was found dead, it was devastating beyond words. Things like that just didn't happen in our small town. Her sister was a classmate and a friend of mine. Her kidnapping and murder affected me the rest of my life...it affected the way I raised my daughters. Eventually the police determined that a truck driver passing through had taken Maria, but because he was alredy deceased that seemed to put an unofficial end to the case. Now all these years later to find ut it was one of our own...someone I knew and liked was devaststing beyond words. I just hope he will stand before the judge and plead guilty just to keep the pain from spreading again.
