Christine Rothschild, 18Killed: She was stabbed and strangled May 26, 1968 -- her body hidden in some bushes outside UW-Madison’s Sterling Hall.
A newspaper report at the time said she was last seen July 10 “walking barefoot – with painted toenails – and wearing blue jeans, carrying a denim jacket and a brown shoulder-strap purse, on the west sidewalk of Loftsgordon Avenue heading toward Aberg Avenue.” Bennett had been in the process of moving to the Cardinal Hotel after being evicted from an apartment building at 1421 Loftsgordon Ave.
Washington Ave., where he lived as a resident employee.
An autopsy said he was strangled between 2 and a.m. Investigators found no real motive, although they speculated he may have come home and surprised a burglary in progress.
The case: Bennett’s body, found by two farm surveyors, was so badly burned and decomposed that the coroner could not determine a cause of death.
Originally from Ridgeway in Iowa County, she was identified through dental records and the record of a childhood broken collar bone.
