Marise Chivarella was just nine years old in March 1964 when she was abducted, raped and murdered in Hazelton, Pennsylvania. The horrific crime devastated her family and shocked the town’s residents. Investigators hoped to solve the crime as soon as possible. But it just didn’t happen. As the days turned into weeks and the weeks turned into months then years, Marise’s murder remained unsolved – but detectives never gave up hope. In 2007, new techniques enabled police to obtain a DNA profile of the suspect. But it wasn’t until 2019 that genetic DNA technology found a match to a distant relative of the suspect. And that’s when Eric Schubert, a teenage student with a great knowledge of DNA profiling, got in touch with the police to see if he could help. Read “Amateur Sleuth Solves 58-Year-Old Murder Mystery” in this issue for the full story.
