Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been intrigued by true crime stories since I read "In Cold Blood" as a teenager. My crime library now stuffs two 8-foot bookcases. The saying that "truth is stranger than fiction" is definitely factual. The peculiarity of human nature defies even the most talented mystery fiction writer. Within the past few years, I've embarked on a quest to find as many famous crime locations and graves as I can, sometimes building entire vacations around them. I now have eight large photo albums filled with crime-related sites from coast to coast. My friends and family think I'm a little nutty, and maybe I am. But, for someone like me, so harmless that I capture moths that fly in the house and set them free outside, the notion that there are human beings who can plot to kill innocent people without remorse is endlessly fascinating. I enjoy contributing to Findagrave and will continue to do so, as long as there are crimes to explore. With the way the world is, I doubt I'll ever run low of material. ** ALERT!! ** I have had a book published called, "The Crime Buff's Guide To Outlaw Pennsylvania." I've written it in conjunction with best-selling true crime author, Ron Franscell. It's available now on Amazon, B&N, and most other book-selling websites.

Please read the book "Convenient Suspect" before you believe any of this obituary. Patricia Rorrer was framed and is innocent of this crime. Look more closely at Andy Katrinak; he knows more than he's admitting to.

Not yet photo'd
Many of my close relatives -- surnames LEVY & KAUDERER mainly -- are buried at Roosevelt Cemetery on the Philly line in Trevose, PA. Very few are in findagrave. Do you live in/near Philly; can you photo some more? I was born & raised in Philly but now live in Illinois.

James Eugene Glass
Thanks for the pics. The grave of James Eugene Glass, it shows 1956-1971. But he died already in 1970. So is his one ?

Black Dahlia
Love your contributions.
Was wondering where the memorial marker for the Black Dahlia that you added to her memorial was located?
Are you working on Gacy's unidentified victims?

Baulch Brothers
I was wondering if you could find out the birthdays or at least the birth month of the Baulch brothers (Billy Gene and Michael Anthony) so I can have a memorial Mass for both of them. Thank you. Elaine
