At 4:30 on Monday, Nov. 13, 1961, Sylvia Fink, 7, left her home in London, Ontario to run an errand. Her mother sent her to the corner store a block away to fetch an evening newspaper. The little girl didn't return. Her parents organized a search party, and at 8 p.m., three friends of the family found Fink's body hanging by a belt in the attic of an abandoned building that was used by neighbourhood children as a play area.
