On June 24th, 1974. fourteen year old Margaret Ellen Fox stepped onto the 8:40am bus to Mount Holly, NJ, some seven miles from her home. She'd recently been hired on as a babysitter and was eager to start her new job. However, Margaret would never return home.
When Margaret didn't arrive back home, her family began searching and soon discovered that not only did the number to her employer trace to a payphone but the man himself, John Marshall, did not exist. Several days later the Fox family received a call from the alleged abductor, demanding $10,000 and then they never heard from him again.
For the last forty-five years the mystery of Margaret's disappearance has haunted her family and Burlington, New Jersey. What became of the young woman and what is the true identity of her abductor?
