1947~Feb. 25, 1955
8 yrs. old
Judy Carter, 8, spent a couple of hours after school playing with two boys from her class. They cavorted for a while in the schoolyard of Winchester Public School before the boys invited Carter over to their house on Rose Ave. to look at comic books. At 6 p.m. Judy left for home, and the last time her playmates saw Judy Carter alive, she was heading east on Winchester St. towards Parliament St., in the direction of her home on Metcalfe St., just two blocks away. She never arrived home. On Saturday, Apr. 9th, two boys fishing along the Rouge River in a rural area northwest of Unionville found a body and ran to a nearby farm for help. The body was that of Judy Carter. She had died of strangulation, her own scarf having been knotted tightly around her neck.
