Re: 1970s Child Murder in Pershing Field (anyone recall?)

Well, to start with, Harold's twin brother is Raymond (Ray) Kopf, not Richard. Even the Times gets it wrong sometimes. Richard is their older brother.
Harold did not go to the park; he was dumped there. The perpetrator was a "friend" of the family. I don't know if the man was arrested and was a horrible time for Ray, and he's a little hazy on some details. He does remember being told that the guy had a bad accident, and died from his injuries. Ray always believed there was more to it than just an accident, but the only person who could have told him the truth about that died years ago.
I don't have many more details, other than yes, Harold was molested and then beaten to death. Nothing about any body part being cut off, although I have to admit, they might not have shared that information with Ray...he was only 11 years old at the time. Ray really doesn't like talking about it, as you can imagine. Harold was his identical twin, and he still feels the loss. Even though he is now 54, I still won't share that bit of information with him. He doesn't need to hear anything new about the incident - proven or unproven - that would just make it worse for him. Thankfully, he's pretty much a technical troglodite, so he asks me to look things up for him online. I won't be showing him this thread, although I will let him know Harold has not been forgotten.
