Description

On November 28th, 1969, college student Betsy Aardsma was murdered inside the library at Penn State University. Betsy had spent Thanksgiving with her boyfriend at his campus but had returned because she had an assignment she needed to finish. It was that assignment that took her to the library that fateful day.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the mysterious murder of Betsy Aardsma. Because of the holiday, the library was not as crowded as it would have been on most days. But, there were still a good number of people inside the building. Betsy was killed in a library section known as "the stacks" due to the extremely narrow rows. Witnesses heard a crash, a young man yelling, and then saw him rush out of the library. Investigators worked hard to solve Betsy's murder but have yet to do so. But, there are a number of suspects that people have pointed to over the years.
