Ewing crime scene

Fifty years ago, the scene on Ewing near Vestal was not so lovely, as Larry Harnisch -- formerly of the magnificent 1947project -- reports in the Daily Mirror. Discovery: The body of a young woman, a mother, with track marks on her arms and a tattoo that read "spider" in Spanish (sans tilde).

This is her. On her back, with her shoes under her arm. Here's the tire prints. Somebody pulled up, lifted her out of the car and dragged her next to a hedge near 1812 Ewing St. She was flashy, all dressed up in red. Red pedal pushers and a red bolero top. Maybe nobody ever told her not to to wear white shoes after Labor Day.
