Justice 4 Shirley Jane Rose! The crime happened when Shirley Jane Rose was only 9 years-old. In 1975, she was not aware that drugs were a big business in her hometown. She was free to romp and play and go to school. She could walk from her grandmother’s home on West Avenue to her house a few blocks away on Scenic. A witness reported seeing someone in a 1969-1970 blue Chevrolet. The unidentified individual pulled up behind Shirley on the street. Some have said it was a 72 Ford Torino. But either have yet to be confirmed. Later, she was supposedly spotted again on the same street. And the car had left the scene. At 6:45 P.M. on October 17, the pretty grade school girl, known for her sweet disposition, was picked off the street. She was abducted just a block from her home in Springfield, Missouri.

Shirley Jane Rose’s wholesome face was a carbon copy of actress Kristy McNichol. The latter is from the popular ‘70s television show Family. Shirley Jane became well known to Springfield residents as the search for her abductor or abductors began. A few months later, a caretaker at McDaniel Lake, found the little girl’s grave. Shirley Jane’s family had provided the description of their missing child. They stressed the fact that she had been last seen wearing a favorite embroidered shirt. Animals had unearthed part of a skeleton wearing that same blouse. A vibrant young elementary student was simply folded and discarded like a milk carton in the trash. Her case remains unsolved till this day.
