The online archive of the Record is home to all sorts of interesting articles.

On Oct. 7, 1976, Cynthia “Rocky” Krizack, a senior at Mt. Greylock Regional High School, had plans to use Sawyer Library for research and then visit a friend at the College. She left her home on Southworth Street at 8 p.m. that Thursday night and never returned. At 12:30 a.m., her concerned parents contacted the Williamstown Police Department (WPD), who immediately organized a search of the campus.

The case remained in limbo for more than three weeks, when on Halloween, Krizack’s body was found by a creek in Windsor, 15 miles from Williamstown. David Bowman, a trapper, contacted the police after locating her body while setting his traps.

An autopsy revealed that Krizack had been struck on the head but that the cause of death was strangulation. She was buried on Nov. 3.

Krizack’s murder and the (unrelated?) disappearence of another young women in 1982 were never solved. I can’t imagine the hell that their fathers went through.

Condolences to all.
