Police Arrest Seattle Man In 1957 Murder Of Illinois Girl
(CNN) -- A 71-year-old Seattle man living under an assumed name at a retirement community in Washington has been arrested in connection with the 1957 kidnapping and murder of an Illinois girl, authorities said Friday.

Maria Ridulph, 7, disappeared while playing near her home in the town of Sycamore, west of Chicago.

Her story captured national headlines and the attention of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, according to news accounts published at the time.

1. Glad they finally got him, but
it's a shame that he was able to enjoy life for many years after murdering little Maria.

2. I was a kid when this happened, and we lived fairly
close to Sycamore, which was a small town then. It was scary for the kids. For awhile, we talked about nothing else.
