Abstract:

"In 1956, three days after Christmas, two Chicago girls, Barbara Grimes, fifteen, and her thirteen-year-old sister Patricia, left home to see Love Me Tender, the first movie starring the heartthrob of the day, Elvis Presley. They never made it home, intercepted somewhere between the Brighton Theater and their house on South Damen Avenue. Twenty-six days later, following a series of bizarre reports of sightings far and wide, they were found dead on a road southwest of the city, their bodies frozen and marked by rodents. While Chicago residents reeled with shock and parents tightened reins on their children, a full -scale investigation ensued, but a fresh snowfall at the deathsite and disputes over jurisdictional authority marred its progress from the start. In the end no one was ever brough tto trial."--Back cover.
