Senseless Killing of 7 Year Old Still Haunts 50 Years Later
March 8, 1966, downtown Elizabeth. Seven year old Wendy Wolin was outside the apartment where they lived at Irvington Avenue and Prince Street. IT was 4pm when a stocky white male wearing a dark corduroy coat and a blue or gray fedora approached the young girl. He was described as having white hair and being in his forties. He was around six feet tall and may have weighed around two hundred plus pounds. Witnesses reported that he crouched down and punched the girl in abdomen. Wolin supposedly let out a cry as the mystery killer wandered off. When people went over to help her, they realized that she was in fact stabbed. Hours later, she would die at the hospital. Around the time of her murder, two other schoolgirls were assaulted minutes earlier within a mile of the Wolin crime scene. Hundreds of people were interviewed and questioned.

Who Wanted an Entire New Jersey Family Dead?
It was sometime before 8:35 a.m. on February. 25th, 1982, that someone left an explosive device, disguised as a package, near the front door of a home at 182 First Street in Middlesex Township. The package was addressed to the owner of the house, Andrew Puskas. He lived there with his wife and three young sons.
The package aroused suspicion as the family took it inside and called police. The two foot long package had some blue glass canisters inside but Andrew thought the delivery was a bad joke. The bomb would go off instantly killing Andrew and his wife Patricia. Fortunately the three children were sent outside because Andrew was getting ready to drive the older two to school. The house was engulfed in fire and destroyed.
Both Andrew Puskas and his wife were 1964 New Brunswick High School graduates. He worked as a salesman out of Newark and also was a lay minister.
