The Enduring Mystery Of Beverly Jarosz

Jan 18, 2008 Full story: Free Times 1,024

“Monday, December 28, Bev and I got up about 8:30, 9 o'clock. We had breakfast and then washed dishes from the night before.”

Looking back, it seemed that Beverly Jarosz had sensed that Death wanted her. A vague sense of impending danger first stirred in the summer of 1964, around the time the 16 year old received an anonymous present ... via Free Times

It was 10:30 in the morning and the street was totally empty and quiet. I didn't see even one person. Creepy.

I imagine someone probably did notice me driving past the house. The whole trip took less than a minute. I turned around in one of the driveways and left as quickly as possible. I really did not want to stay there.

My grandma knows beverly. They were good friends when they were kids. My grandma said that a blue car used to past by my grandma and drive very slowly and look at her. She said the man looking was older but when i look at all that happend it seems like the whole klonowski family knew about it. The brother i think did it and barb could have been an accomplise. The whole family had to know because they wouldnt just mysteriously ship him off out of the country after her death. But when reading the comments i came across one that talked about a blue car being outside her house reported by a neighbor. Barb could have lied and said there was no car in fear of them being caught. Also people said no one was outside her house. Beverly didnt answer the door to anyone and she had to trust the person she opened the door for. I think it was barb and her brother she opened the door for. I also heard that sometime soon after the murder a blue car was blown up. I think it was barb and her brother i really do. And the whole klonoski family knew about it.

Tanner,

Please explain the connection of a man looking at your grandma and the relationship to the murder. If she is Margie then that explains it.

My grandma and beverly lived only a few blocks away from each other. They would hang out with each other often. This car following my grandma was before the murder but my grandma said she would walk to her friends house and often that blue car would pass by very slowly. My grandma eventually started to walk to places with her mom and that same car saw her mom with her one day and that car sped off. Now a neighbor did report seeing a blue car outside beverlys house but no one was outside according to the neighbor and barb said there was no car or anybody outside. Now if the neighbor said there was no one outside then i believe barb and her brother were already inside the house.I believe barb is lieing about there not being a car and was an accomplice. Her brother who i believe did the actual murder was shipped off to another country by his parents so he wouldnt get in trouble. Beverly opened that door for barb and her brother i believe. A blue car was blown up shortly after her murder. That person in the car had to be barbs brother or dad. Another scary thing that beverly told my grandma was beverly predicted she would die by a horrific death before the age of 20.

Tanner, Did your Grandma also hang around with Margie and Barb? Did she say whether or not Beverly ever talked to the person in the blue car?

Hi Tanner, just read your posts. I was wondering if Detective Horrigan knew about the blue car being blown up. I don't think I came across that in the newspapers. Do you know where the car was blown up?

Hi Mac,
Detective horrigan did know. There is a book called death ride at euclid beach which contains several stories and one is beverlys murder. The detective wrote the story on beverlys muder. It says in there that a blue car was blown up shortly after her death. It contains alot of information and i recomend it to anyone who reads this. My grandma was also interviewed for any information she knew or who she thought the killer might be but she did not know. Anyone who has questions about beverly please ask me as i am the grandchild of one of beverlys closest friends and i will ask my grandma anything you guys want to know.

I posted a while back about reading the story online about William Rehard confessing to a detective that he killed Beverly. Before the detective could obtain a written confession, Rehard killed himself in prison. He had abducted and harmed a child after the Jarosz murder. James Renner had heard that story, too, but he along with others, gave it little credence. Tanner, did Beverly ever talk about a William Rehard? He supposedly said he was rejected by Beverly and didn't want anyone else to have her if he couldn't. By the way, I had read an article about this in the Plain Dealer several years ago. I wonder if they ever compared fingerprints or DNA on evidence collected.

I remember reading about them finding a car that was set on fire but nothing ever came of it. Tanner does your grandmother know how serious roger and beverly relationship was.

Tanner - Your poor grandmother is really getting grilled, isn't she? I have a question, too. Would your grandmother recall Beverly ever talking about a college-age orderly at Marymount Hospital who might have been interested in her? I remember reading that Beverly was a candy-striper. There was a guy in our neighborhood who was an orderly, and kind of creepy. Have no reason to suspect him other than the fact that he was creepy. Still, some of us wonder.... Thanks to your grandmother for answering all these questions.

I was wondering if your Grandmother contacted Garfield when they opened the case a few years back? Sometimes years later, people recall something, and shrug it off, thinking it may not be helpful, only to find out to the contrary.
