The Enduring Mystery Of Beverly Jarosz

Cleveland \Cuyahoga authorities used DNA to solve a 23 year old rape case in GA. Perhaps the DNA collected from the crime scene will finally identify Beverly’s killer. I suppose the condition and quantity of the DNA collected at the crime scene, as well as any samples taken from those interrogated, would be a primary factor in the identification process.  (Jul 24, 2009 | post #106)

The Enduring Mystery Of Beverly Jarosz

Someone did see something and talked about what he saw to the police. Remember the man at the window, Mr. Krawczyk, who told police he saw a young man walking down the driveway, cross the street, and drive-away. He also made no mention of seeing a young girl, or anyone for that matter, hanging around the Jarosz’s front steps. Mr. Krawczyk was quick to recant his eye witness account, however. And as RNS noted earlier, someone needs to check Mr. Krawczyk’s bank account, in anticipation of a hefty deposit into the account of the “striking” White Motors employee. Horrigan might have suspected the Klonowski’s, but new he could not go public with his suspicions due to their influence. Until the day someone comes forward with first-hand knowledge of what actually happened, all we can do is speculate. Lots of questions looking for some answers.  (Feb 14, 2009 | post #63)

I thought about posting on Websleuth’s Website, but they don’t accept public email addresses. Your right though, Websleuth’s would probably have broader appeal. Conversely, I do believe all the answers to all the questions concerning Beverly’s murder can be discovered locally. I would not be surprised if the murderer or someone with intimate knowledge of the murder has read our posts. In an anonymous forum as this, I would think this is a perfect outlet for those with unexpressed details, thoughts, opinions, and questions about the murder, to express them and get things “off their chest.” I know in the last 2 months, my knowledge of the murder increased greatly from this forum. I kind of feel we hit the wall now. However, I will keep checking this forum for new posts and if I have any new information or questions I will certainly post them here. I just hope this forum stays open.  (Jan 17, 2009 | post #59)

Yep, that works. I wonder why Renner and Bellamy, et. all, never tried to interview Barb and Paul? If the authors’ tried and failed, why not at least mention that fact in their books. Maybe fear of a lawsuit? I’m sure Barb, Paul, and the rest of the Klonowski’s have the best representation their millions can buy. There is probably no way anyone could make them, legally, give-up their DNA or fingerprints. And their publicly available records, whatever they are, have probably all been sealed. Maybe Barb was in the wrong place at the wrong time? Was Paul aware of his sister’s date with Beverly and decide to use his sister’s visit as a way to justify to Beverly his presence at the house that day? Imagine Barb’s shock, if she saw Paul coming out that backdoor? If it was Paul, he couldn’t have run all the way to Oakpark, so how did he escape the area? Did he park on E 112 and drive away? Still would like to hear Gary Grayson’s account of picking up Barb and driving her home. Was she just wondering around? I’ll bet theirs a few Psychiatrists out there with the whole story.  (Jan 3, 2009 | post #48)

BAM. Terrific post. Incredible sleuthing. When you said you were going to ask around, your weren’t kidding. I think you hit the nail on the head. 80M each and trust funds for the kids to boot you say. I wondered about The Bank of Cleveland. I found out that banks, and savings and loan associations, were the most prominent and important business enterprises in the history of Cleveland's Polish communities. The Bank of Cleveland was the city's first Polish bank. It was started around 1913 in the Warszawa area, by Stanley Klonowski (Barbs g g grandfather I think.) Stanley had aligned himself with Michael Kniola, a very highly respected businessman with many of the residents of Warszawa, and whose familiarity with personalities in the city's banking and exchange circles, made him a respected leader in the Polish community until his death in the 1940's. So yes, I would say the Klonowski’s influence, monetary and political, in the community was very deep and very significant. You know, Beverly’s grandmothers’ last name was Vanek. I wonder if her family was related to Charles A.Vanik, (different spelling though,) the late Ohio Senator and U.S. Representative? And from “Oakpark neighbor,” Paul was the prime suspect of the Cleveland Detectives. In an earlier post, Henry Oleksiak, told of a boy running down E112 in his shorts. I thought he was kidding me in response to my post. When I ask for clarification, he didn’t respond. Have you every heard that story before? If true, maybe that boy was Paul? Or maybe “Henry” was referring to Krawczyk’s made-up story? It might be a stretch, literally, to see the backdoor from the side-door. I have seen the side-door, but not the backdoor. If Barb saw her brother coming out that backdoor, or someone else for that matter, I’m surprised the family didn’t ship her off to Europe for her own good also. Imagine living with that knowledge. I had read that Barb had a rough time because of the accusations directed against her. This puzzles me, according to a 10-26-08 PD Staff article, Grandma Vanek told police she was on the phone with Beverly at 1:15pm when Beverly said she had to hangup to open the door for her friend. Who was at the side-door, Paul, Barb, or both? And this friend Gary Grayson allegedly saw Barb walking home from Beverly’s and drove her the rest of the way home. I wonder what Grayson had to say about that? I found a police report from 1996 filed against a Paul L. Klonowski for possession of fireworks. It showed he was living on Oakpark, so I guess he’s around. I believe he has since moved from Oakpark.  (Jan 3, 2009 | post #46)

Happy New Year. May you all have a healthly and prosperous New Year, and hopefully this will be the year we find out Beverly's murderer.  (Dec 31, 2008 | post #41)

Marilyn, you probably did take piano lessons from Barb Klonowski at Andrews. Several posts suggest she worked their. I don’t think she works their now, however. A lot of the posts I’ve read suggest a cover-up, initiated by the money and influence of Barbs’ father and grandfather. I also have a problem with Barb’s account of her behavior outside the Jarosz home. Beverly did volunteer at the local hospital, Marymount I guess, and studied Latin, as all Catholic high school students did, so a clerical, priestly, association could have formed. But I don’t think a priest would send her gifts and I feel the anonymous gifts were from her killer. And you right about the damage done by the killer, certainly beyond the capability of a girl. And I also really wonder about Beverly’s sudden preoccupation with death. What was she afraid of, or who was she afraid of? Carol, her sister, could probably answer those questions for us. That caller, Stackowicz, could have disguised his voice to keep from being identified. And strands of Bev’s bloody hair were found in the backyard bushes suggesting the way the killer exited. One of the suspects lived a couple houses away so it would have been an easy exit strategy for him to use. The mailman, now that’s a real possibility. I haven’t heard that mentioned before. I believe the GH detectives working on the case have submitted some evidence for DNA testing. Good ideas looking for good answers.  (Dec 29, 2008 | post #36)

I know your right on both counts. All it will take is for someone in the community to give up that one little piece of information they have been holding on to for the last 44 years. I think everyone knows’ that key is out their. I don’t know how someone could live with that knowledge, let alone live with it for 44 years. It would be nice if the murderer is named before Beverly’s family pass-away. The mom and dad must be around 80. And the suspects are still alive. I would like to know how Beverly’s parents feel about the indifference of the community, the police, their neighbors and friends, to bring the murderer of their daughter to justice.  (Dec 28, 2008 | post #29)

Both her parents and her sister are still alive. As are the suspects. Her father still lives in the house.  (Dec 27, 2008 | post #27)

I think you mean the police had Barb down their. And yes, other posts suggest Barb is teaching music at Andrews. According to additional accounts, the Klonowski’s actions surrounding Beverly’s murder seem very suspicious, especially concerning Paul. Barb might know more than she appears. It’s amazing all the little pieces of information people have about the murder.  (Dec 25, 2008 | post #25)

To rather not say; Thanks for the reply. In a few days it will be 44 years to that day. Amazing the truth about the murder has yet to come out. You know, its' strange the POLICE called Stan, huh?  (Dec 25, 2008 | post #23)

Henry, Do you mean Dubaniewicz? Which way was the boy running on 112, towards McCracken or towards Wallingford? Did anyone find his pants?  (Dec 23, 2008 | post #21)

To Oakpark Neighbor; how do you know Paul was their prime suspect? And why did the Cleveland Detectives and not the Garfield Hts. PD\Detectives feel Paul was the one? Do you know if anything is being done now about Paul? What’s Barb doing today? To Neighbor in 1965; when you said Paul was sent to Europe, “right after the murder,” do you mean, the next day, the second day, 3 days, 5 days? To rather not say; your description of Mr. K’s actions on 12-28-64 and after, definitely portray a man who has something to be concerned about. Do you think the call came from Mrs. K? Do you know if Mr. K received the call before or after Beverly’s murder was discovered? With the available liquidity at the bank and the time-off, Mr. K could have easily financed a quick getaway. You say, Bank of Cleveland? Which Bank of Cleveland, Central National, Society, National City? What location did Mr. K work at? John Paliyan, suspect, spoke of a cover-up. What do you think? My problem is with Barb. According to Barb’s story, her account puts her there at the time of the murder. A PD Staff article dated 10-26-08, reveals Beverly’s grandmother (Vanek) told police she was on the phone with Beverly when the teen cut the conversation short at 1:15 p.m. saying said she had to open the door for her friend. The Cuyahoga County coroner said Beverly died 25 minutes later. Who did Beverly open the door for? Barb, or who? Where was Barb from 12:30 pm to 1:20 pm? Did anyone see Barb at Beverly’s house besides Barb’s mother? Barb said that after she left Beverly’s, Gary Grayson drove her the rest of the way home after she had walked a bit. What does Grayson have to say about the ride home? What’s Barb’s status today? It’s hard to believe the Webers, or the Zumgulises, or anyone on Thornton Ave., didn’t see something  (Dec 19, 2008 | post #19)
