Cahn: Closer to closing the Lyon case
Placeholder Image
Eleven months ago, I wrote about what has long been considered a kidnapping case which has haunted me since just before my 10th birthday. More than 40 years ago, on March 25, 1975, two sisters disappeared from a mall near where I used to live in the Washington, D.C., suburbs of Montgomery County, Md. Katherine and Sheila Lyon, 10 and 12, respectively, had walked to Wheaton Plaza by themselves -- something kids like us could do back then -- ran into some friends, had some pizza, were interviewed by a man with a tape recorder ... and then disappeared.
