Richard Streicher Jr. was murdered in March 1935 - Boy whose 81-year-old murder remains unsolved gets gravestone

A ceremony was held Saturday to dedicate a new gravestone for a 7-year-old Michigan boy whose brutal killing more than 80 years ago remains unsolved.

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.

That must have been the crime of the decade in Michigan in the 30s, Detroit excepted. How much worse the USA has become!

How can anyone stab a seven year old fourteen times?

What about his parents? Why aren't their names on there?

Was he a human or a nigger?

Yeah, designing and wording it in a way that reflects sentimental glory back onto themselves, and leaving out anything about his own family. Real nice thought. Almost as bad as that rich society lady in Atlanta who built a huge tombstone for Mary Phagan (raped and murdered by Jew Leo Frank in his pencil factory) and made sure to include a big inscription noting her role in paying for it.

How i wish they could solve the Grimes sisters murder and Judith Mae Anderson too.

They had a very strong candidate for the Grimes Killer, but they just couldn't get that last bit of evidence to make a case that would hold up in court. Can't remember the guy's name but you can google it.

His parents names were not placed on the monument because it was his headstone alone and he was the sole person buried there. The parents have their own grave spaces near Detroit and Richards name would not be engraved on the parents Monument. Also the more you try to fit on the face of the monument the smaller all the wording has to be. You try to fit too much on there it looks very cluttered very quickly.
