This is a sad story I’m sorry to say. But, it will, in the spirit of love, make you cherish your little ones.
on October 18, 1949 a wife and mother was kidnapped from her home.
Dorothy Forstein and her husband had a happy marriage. Dorothy was one of the most liked residents in their neighborhood. Her husband had a child, a daughter, from a previous marriage and then they conceived a daughter of their own.
Late one night their daughter was woken by a noise. She went in to her mother’s room where she ly unconscious on the floor. She saw a man she didn’t recognize pick her mother up and sling her over his shoulders and carry her down the stairs.
Now let’s remember this is a child totally dependent on her mother as her father is still at work, having called them earlier to let them know. The trauma this little girl must have been through!
Dorothy’s daughter asks this man, “What are you doing?” He pats her on the head and says, “Go back to bed little one, your mom is fine.” He then leaves the house with her mother still unconscious and locks the door behind him.
Can you possibly imagine?!
Her father returns home only fifteen minutes after and finds both girls huddled in a bedroom crying, “Mommy’s gone!”
The police doubting the little girls story of the man call in a psychologist who determines that she indeed is telling the truth.
The police conduct a routine investigation. They can only figure that it is some sort of grudge against the husband, him being a man of importance. They ask around at hospitals, hotels, and morgues for any unidentied women. They find nothing.
Now five years earlier Dorothy had gone through a home invasion where she was beaten pretty severe and left unconscious in this instance too.
In both instances of what happened to Dorothy there were no fingerprints,nothing was taken from their home, and there was no sign of forced entry.
With no clues as to where Dorothy was or even if she was still alive or dead, on October 18,1956, seven years after Dorothy vanished, and just months after Dorothy’s husband died of heart disease, their daughter filed a petition with the court and Dorothy Forstein was officially declared deceased.
My thoughts are, “Why would someone target this woman?”
“Was it someone with a grudge against her husband?”
I want you to discuss your thoughts and on this day, all about love, hug those you love dear.
