In September of 1985, I received a newspaper clipping from my mother along with this handwritten note:
    “Hey Beck, isn’t this interesting!!! This has to be the man you and I went to see in School Lane Hills. Why the request for info now, do you suppose?”
    The clipping was the following, small boxed article from the Lancaster New Era published on September 12, 1985 and titled, “Police Seek Info On Kidnapping:”
    City police are seeking information about a kidnapping and assault in September 1981 when an 81-year-old man was abducted from a downtown parking garage.
    The man was found beaten and cut, lying along Chiques Hill Road in West Hempfield Township, more than three hours after he had been abducted from the Prince Street garage on Sept. 11, 1981.
    City police ask anyone with information about this crime to contact Detective Sgt. James Walsh or call the We Tip hotline, 1-800-73-CRIME.
    “They didn’t attempt to keep a low profile. Numerous people saw them but no one could identify them by name.”

Lancaster Captain of Detectives Luther Henry quoted in the New Era on September 17, 1981 regarding the three men who tried to murder Daniel Rhoads.
