BIRTH: November 28, 1955
DEATH: April 15, 1969
Dawn, 13, died at the hands of a serial killer and sexual predator. She was leaving a house near the EMU campus to go home on April 15, 1969, and was found the next day. She had been strangled with a black electrical wire and stabbed/slashed in several places and possibly raped. She was killed elsewhere, possibly in a deserted farm house where items of her clothing were found. She was an eighth-grade student, the youngest of the victims.
Even though it’s known who brutally murdered Dawn, her murder is still considered unsolved.
