~ And Make An Arrest! ~

 

  

 

TELL THEM

WHAT YOU THINK!

WHO WANTS IT?

      The Lancaster County Commissioners have scheduled two public meetings tonight and tomorrow to discuss the proposed hotel/convention center and the hotel tax.

      The first meeting is tonight at the Ephrata Public Library, 550 South Reading Road (Route 272) in Ephrata.  The phone number is 717-738-9291.  The doors will open to the public at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.

      The second meeting is tomorrow at the East Hempfield Municipal Building, 1700 Nissley Road (off Harrisburg Pike at Amos Herr Park) in Landisville.  The phone number is 717-898-3100.  Again, the doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting will start at 7:00 p.m.

YELLOW BANANAS

    Well, it’s been a week since the Vidocq Society met and reviewed the case of Lindy Biechler, who was brutally murdered at the age of nineteen in Millersville in 1975. 

    As noted here previously, the New Era article regarding the meeting, “Probers to killer:  We’re getting closer,” quoted Richard Walter, a forensic psychologist, as saying to the killer, “Don’t buy any green bananas.”

    The article also states that FBI profiler James Fitzgerald said of the killer, “He knew Biechler.”  The article also says this, “Detective Geesey [Lancaster County Detective Joseph Geesey] said investigators think they know the motive for the murder, which he declined to disclose.”

    Enough is enough. You’ve had 30 years to arrest someone she knew and you have the motive.  Arrest him already!   Her family deserves answers and an arrest.  They deserved it 30 years ago. 

    As promised, I will let my bananas sit in a dark corner for one more week before saying more.  Let’s make an arrest, Mr. Geesey.

A DANGEROUS REPORTER

    Coming tomorrow – Brett Lovelace is a very dangerous reporter.  Who is watching him at the Intell?  Somebody better start!

LANCASTER LYNCHING

     I will be coming back to the Lancaster Lynching story on this website shortly.  Also coming will be more on an amazing night at the Philadelphia Tribune, from the “Tribune Days” series, which starts below.

~ A Brutal Beating ~

TRIBUNE DAYS

 

    It was early on a quiet Friday night at the Philadelphia Tribune.  I was there as a correspondent and part-time reporter.  Jim Davis, the city editor, asked all the male reporters to go to dinner.  “What about Gwen?” I asked.  She was the lone and brilliant female reporter on their staff.  They invited her, asked me if I’d be okay with the phones, and off they went.

     The phone rang seconds later.  It was a very upset, confused and angry man.  He said the police had just beaten a black man severely and he had witnessed it.  He said a lot of people had.

     I asked where he was.  It was less than two blocks away.  I told him a reporter would be there within minutes.  I asked him how to find him.  I asked him to please stay where he was until a reporter got there.

     I walked into Jim Cassell’s office, the editor of the Tribune.  I told him about the call.  I said I would go but there was no one else to answer the phones.  He said, “I’ll go.”

    “What?” I asked. 

    “I used to be a reporter,” he said.  “How do you think I got this job?”

    “Oh,” was all I said. 

    He came out of the office pulling on his coat and asking for directions and how to find the man who had called.

    “Be careful,” I said as he was leaving.

    “Why?” he asked.  “There will be police everywhere.”

    “I know,” I said.  “That’s why I said, ‘Be careful.’”

    “You’re learning a lot here, aren’t you young lady?” he asked.

    "Yes," I said.

    Within a minute of his leaving, the phone began to ring off the hook.   It would be one of the most remarkable nights of my life…
