Dear Editor,

Next year will be the 60th year since the abduction and murder of Nancy Eagleson. Although Nancy’s mother passed away in the last year, Nancy’s sisters still hope that her murder can be solved and with today’s technological advances, that hope actually grows stronger.

All that is needed is DNA. Can it be obtained? Nothing is impossible. Forensic science may still triumph. It is quite possible that at least one person in the area is becoming more and more alarmed as cold cases, many decades old, are being solved and those responsible are being held accountable. Will there one day be an un-welcomed knock on his door?

Nancy’s remaining family members have decided to move the Walk to Remember Nancy from November, when the crime took place to June, which was Nancy’s birth month. Please join friends and family members on Sunday evening, June 30 at 7 p.m. at the former Paulding Theater on Perry Street. From the theater, the walk will proceed approximately five blocks to the abduction site on Flat Rock Drive. In case of rain, please dress appropriately.

It is time for answers. Please show support and help celebrate and commemorate a life cut short.

Jeanne Windsor
