FFfAW-Elizabeth Montgomery

The adorable Elizabeth Montgomery was kidnapped on a rainy day in August, 2005. Everyone sought diligently to find her, but her case went cold.

On July 16, 2009, the detectives received this letter:

“I have information about Elizabeth Montgomery. In exchange for a shorter sentence, I will give you this information.”

Mack Mason

Ohio State Prison

Detectives were dispatched to Mason and gleaned this statement:

“Ronnie McNeil kidnapped and raped Elizabeth Montgomery, then strangled her and buried her by the walking path.”

Elizabeth's little body was found and she finally got to go home.

Ronnie McNeil awaits his execution.

  1. This is very dark PJ. Although, I believe it mimics the truth of some real cases out there. It’s an awful and horrifying scenario. I don’t know if it’s your thing but there is a book and a movie called:The Lovely Bones, about a girl who was killed and his her family dealt with the situation, which basically destroyed them. It’s a serious read. Take care and Merry Christmas!

  2. Great job on this, Joy! I really does sound real. Maybe the parents can get a little peace now that the killer has been caught and they can finally bury their daughter. It sad also that now they have the agony of the trial and the outcome of it. There are so many unsolved cases like this in real life and the families are enduring such torture not knowing what happened to their child. They are left with the hope that their child might still being alive, but even then, they are constantly wondering what kind of life is being lead.

    • I can’t imagine how horrible it would be to lose a child in that way. It would just be devastating! Actually, it would be devastating to lose a child by any means. I hope I never find out.

  3. Hey we’re all not psycho killers in Ohio! Nicely done, seems real. It’s the normally cold weather that breeds killers and presidents in this state. It damages the brain. πŸ˜‰

  4. Tragically real-feel story as if from one of those true crime shows on television. A dark story, but there now can be some peace within her family. A sense of rest and release. So, not as “off” for this time of the year when we think of family. There is somewhere for their daughter now.
    Thank you for a year of wonderfully challenging, intriguing and fun photo prompts.
    Wishing you and your family all the best of this festive season and special time of the year.

    • Thank you so very much Phylor! Yes, my story was probably a lot like the crime shows on television as I watch them on television so much. πŸ˜€ It’s my pleasure hosting FFfAW challenge. I love reading everyone’s stories from the photo prompts I select. I wish you and your family a festive holiday season too!

  5. Oh boy. What a horrible thing to happen and the Sad part is, i’ve watched similar events on crime documentaries. It is a consolation that Elizabeth will get her much deserved Justice. Well done Pj πŸ‘

  6. Oh my, I loved Elizabeth Montgomery, this is not what I was expecting to read at all…but story wise it was captivating and that is the point after all, isn’t it?

  7. Nice story. But Oh boy! I’m almost afraid to go back to that trail… (although the one in the picture is a pretty busy one, but I must admit I once strolled on one that I may not go back to. Nothing happened, but I just didn’t like the vibe of the people I encountered there. )

I would love to read your thoughts...
