When a murder case solved by a childhood memory! ΝΤΕΤΕΚΤΙΒ

Updated: Aug 23

Fifty-five years after 7-year-old Maria Ridulph was taken from the streets of Sycamore, Ill., to be found choked and stabbed to death, a 72-year-old security guard, Jack McCullough, was arrested for the crime. However, it wasn’t forensic evidence that led police to re-investigate McCullough as a potential suspect, but the deathbed confession of his mother in 1994 who said she lied about his alibi, according to The Huffington Post. In 2008, McCullough’s half-sister passed on this information to the police. McCullough had been one of about 100 potential suspects, but seemed to have a rock-solid alibi at the time of the murder. His mother had backed up his whereabouts. ντετεκτιβ, γραφειο ιδιωτικων ερευνων, However, with her admission about her alibi, police re investigated McCullough, who was sentenced to life in prison in 2012 for the crime.




Jack McCullough was found guilty in 2012 of the murder of Maria Ridulph, who was kidnapped on December 3, 1957 while playing in the snow outside of her Sycamore home.


Maria and a friend had been approached by a young man who offered them piggyback rides, the friend told CBS.

“He stopped to talk to us... told us that his name, his name was Johnny,” Kathy Chapman told 48 Hours.

Maria jumped on the man’s back, went home to get a doll, returned and then Chapman left to get mittens. When Chapman came back, γραφειο ιδιωτικων ερευνων both Maria and the man were gone.

Maria’s remains were found months later in a forest.





McCullough, who lived in the community and was 18 at the time of Maria’s disappearance, was cleared as a suspect in the 1950s, but investigators again focused on him after one of his half-sisters told authorities their mother said on her deathbed that she believed he may have killed Maria, CBS wrote.

The former police officer always maintained his innocence, telling cops that he had been 40 miles away when Maria disappeared.

But evidence was kept out of McCullough’s trial that supported his alibi, officials said.

A report from DeKalb County State’s Attorney Richard Schmack said evidence, including phone records, showed McCullough had been in Rockford, about 40 miles northwest of Sycamore, to enlist in the Air Force at the time of the abduction.





It would have been impossible for McCullough to have kidnapped Maria and driven to Rockford in time to make a documented telephone call and meet with recruiters, Schmack said.
