Nine year old Shirley Jane Rose was a young girl living her childhood.
On the early evening of October 17th, she was abducted by someone just a block from her home in Springfield. A witness reported seeing a 1969-1970 blue Chevrolet car follow the elementary school girl. A search would ensue but would prove fruitless in finding her alive. Several months later on December 13th, her remains were discovered unearthed from a grave by animals near McDaniel Lake.
There were persons of interest in the case but never any arrests.
