Theories abounded about what had happened to the little girl. Gypsies had carried Catherine away, some townsfolk claimed. A dark-coated stranger abducted her as she walked along Broad Street selling papers of needles, some suggested. Others speculated that Catherine had been trapped after falling into a nearby gravel pit, her body washed away in muddy floodwaters that crippled much of the midwest for weeks to come.
In her book, Haunted Henry County, lifelong New Castle resident Charlene Zornes Perry recounts detail by detail the true events of the last day Catherine was seen, setting to rest which of the theories were most plausible and why. Perry's work reflects more than two decades of intense research on the still-open case, which was eventually labeled a murder by New Castle authorities.
Simply by presenting the nearly century-old story in her own matter-of-fact and straightforward manner, Perry sets the record straight about strange, and perhaps more relevant, facts surrounding the girl's disappearance---in the end, considering a lesser-known theory, one only furtively whispered in hushed tones behind closed Henry County doors.
Perry utilizes this same carefully-researched sense of the telling detail to extract the most compelling truths surrounding more than 30 legends that grew from this central Indiana county that sits midway between Indianapolis and Richmond on Interstate 70, and the counties surrounding it.Read more ›
