Newspaper clipping from The Boston Post. August 25, 1953: 7
“[…] That was the day I read about you.” “How do you mean?” “Oh,” Joan said, “about how the police thought you were dead and all. I’ve got a pile of clippings somewhere.” […] Joan rummaged in her open suitcase and came up with a fistful of clippings. “Here, have a look.” The first clipping showed a big, blown-up picture of a girl with black-shadowed eyes and black lips spread in a grin. I couldn’t imagine where such a tarty picture had been taken until I noticed the Bloomingdale earrings and the Bloomingdale necklace glinting out of it with bright, white highlights, like imitation stars.
SCHOLARSHIP GIRL MISSING. MOTHER WORRIED
The article under the picture told how this girl had disappeared from her home on August 17th, wearing a green skirt and a white blouse, and had left a note saying she was taking a long walk. When Miss Greenwood had not returned by midnight, it said, her mother called the town police.
