Richard Streicher Jr. was murdered in March 1935 - Boy whose 81-year-old murder remains unsolved gets gravestone
Richard Streicher Jr. was murdered in March 1935 in Ypsilanti and his grave in a town cemetery was never marked due to the notoriety of the crime, the Ann Arbor News reports. The boy never returned home after going sledding on a late winter evening. His body was found days later underneath a footbridge near his home with 14 stab wounds.
Investigators never found the killer.
The Ann Arbor News ran a story about the cold case murder in December which led to an online fundraising campaign that raised $1,500 for a headstone to mark the grave.
Engraved on the monument is a runner sled in remembrance of the boy’s last activity before his death, the paper reported.
