This week’s story comes from Garfield Heights, a suburb of Cleveland Ohio. There wasn’t anything unusual about December 28, 1964. Beverly and Carol Jarosz watched their parents leave and go to work. The sisters had plans to walk to their grandmother’s house and have lunch with her.
Around 1 p.m., Beverly told her grandmother she needed to return home and meet up with her friends Barbara and Margie. An 18-year-old neighbor of Beverly’s grandmother gave Beverly a ride home. Beverly was going to meet with her friend Barbara and then spend the afternoon with another friend. Barbara arrived at 1:25 p.m. She knocked on the door and then heard a thump coming from upstairs. It sounded as if someone was moving furniture.
After no one responded, Barbara returned home. She spoke to her friend Margie and told her Beverly never answered the door. The three girls originally planned on spending the day together. Margie called Beverly’s grandmother and told her Beverly didn’t answer the door to Barbara.
The grandmother called Beverly’s dad Ted Jarosz and shared her concern. Ted left work to check on his daughter. He arrived home loud music playing. He went upstairs to check on his daughter. He found Beverly lying face down. Someone had murdered his beloved daughter.
Nearly six decades have passed since Beverly was murdered at 10921 Thornton Avenue in Garfield Heights, Ohio. Today, the case remains cold. For this episode I spoke to Carol Bartos and retired Detective Carl Biegacki about the unsolved murder of Beverly Jarosz.
