The girl that was murdered in Mancelona, MI was my aunt. She was placed in a foster home and that's when she was beat by her foster dad. Her 7 year old foster brother found her in her closet a week or so after her death. But yes the foster dad basically got away with it.|

Comment by AL: I have spent a lot of time in the house where she was murdered. I myself never experienced anything, others have said that when no one was upstairs you could hear music playing but when they went to check there was no music.

After reading the story of the girl seen screaming with no noise coming out near the near the Mancelona fire station it struck me that it could be Marion (her last name I do not remember) who died in 1975 or 1976.From what I clearly remember I was in about 3rd or 4th grade and Marion was a senior in the high school that year. We knew each other well she walked with me to school every day since the Elementary and High Schools were side by side. We walk to and from school everyday until the Christmas break of that year. She was also a close friend of my step mother Joann who had graduated the year before. It was a normal cold winter about 5-6 feet of snow on the ground that had settled with a hardened shell that glistened in the moon light the night we got the news.
We lived out in the country side of Mancelona on 13 acres of land in a rented mobile home. My father was gone working on an oil rig for Halliburton so it was just me Dobie (my dog) and Joann. The wind was howling and the moon was brightly shinning. My Doberman was getting restless and woke me up. He had a deep constant warning growl as he peered out the window. When I got the chance to look I saw Marion in her white night gown walking over the shimmering snow waving with a smile. Just then the phone rang and I could hear Joann talking to someone on the phone in the kitchen then hung up. I could hear her start crying. I had turned to look towards my bedroom door where the sound was coming from.
I then looked back out the window and she was gone. Puzzled I ran to the kitchen to tell Joann to tell Marion to get out of the cold. Then she told me that Marion was dead they just found her body in her bedroom closet that evening (2nd or 3rd of Jan).She had been beaten to death with a lead pipe by her step-father during one of his drunken rages. Her body was so badly beaten that it was a close casket at her funeral. She is buried at the cemetery in town just up from the fire station and kitty corner to the old movie theater. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. She loves daises. This is most likely her from my understanding her step father pretty much got away with it.
