“As I walked into the house, the scene I beheld was like something out of a movie. Every eye turned toward me, but no one spoke a word. ‘What’s wrong?’ As tears ran down my sister’s face, she said, with a voice filled with sobs, ‘Kathy’s dead; she’s been murdered.’
It was a cold November night in 1971 when thirteen-year-old Kathy Lynn Gloddy went missing, only to have her beaten, bruised body found the next day on the cold ground. Enter into the tragedy as Karen Beaudin vividly recounts the horrifying revelation of her younger sister’s death in A Child Is Missing—the shocking true story of a small New Hampshire town stunned by the revelation of such a brutal crime, and a family devastated by the loss of a beloved daughter and sister. As Karen and her family search for justice, their faith will be tested in the battle against the guilt, fear, and devastating grief that comes when they realize every family’s worst nightmare: A Child Is Missing.
A Child Is Missing is a painful yet vital glimpse of a murder investigation seen through the eyes of a sister who is still searching for the truth. For anyone who cares about justice beyond the courtroom, this is a must-read.
