UNSOLVED MURDERS

On December 28th, 1957 Barbara and Patricia Grimes disappeared from a local movie theater after seeing the Elvis Presley film, Love Me Tender. Over the month following their disappearance, there were several sightings of the siblings but none were confirmed. On January 22, 1957, their naked bodies were found in Willow Springs, Illinois. Shortly after, Bennie Bedwell confessed to the murders but his confession did not align with forensic evidence and he was set free. Their murders remain unsolved.
