Imagine working at a local news station and picking up the phone, only to have a man confess to a gruesome cold case from over 30 years ago. That’s what happened at a news station in Milwaukee, WI.
Carrie Ann Jopek was 13-years-old in 1982 when her mom got a telephone call from her daughter’s school saying her seventh-grader had gotten suspended for skipping class. Her mom expected her to show up from school soon thereafter, but she was never seen alive again.
A year later, a contractor was working on a porch in a home in the girl’s neighborhood when he discovered her body buried in the dirt. Finally, police were able to figure out what happened to her.
The news station received a phone call from a man who claimed to live across the street from Carrie Ann. He said they went to a party together the night she died and that she fell and broke her neck. When he realized she was dead, he said he buried her and she has been haunting him ever since.
The man, now 50, says he and some friends were with Carrie Ann when she hit her head and died, but they were scared and never told police. Instead, they grabbed a dry cleaning bag, wrapped the girl in it and dug a hole under the porch to bury her.
The news station immediately called police after the man’s call and he is now in custody on preliminary charges of homicide. Here is to justice for this poor girl after so many years of not being able to rest in peace!
