COLD CASE: THE MURDER OF KRISTIN O’CONNELL

COLD CASE: The Murder of Kristin O’Connell

The murder of Kristin O’Connell occurred in Ovid, New York on or about August 14, 1985. This case is actively being investigated by the New York State Police, private investigators, mother of the victim Phyllis O’Connell and friends of the O’Connell family. There have been many theories as to what happened. There are also suspects in this case actively being investigated.

We know from the underlying investigation that Kristin, age 20 arrived safely in Ovid, NY on Monday August 12, 1985 in the mid-evening hours. Kristin’s purpose in coming to Ovid was to visit with a young man she had met in Florida while vacationing. She felt that there was a romantic spark there. He had invited her to Ovid to visit him. There wasn’t a whole lot that went on the first night of Kristin’s stay. She was tired from the trip.

However, during the intervening days she met several other friends of the young man she went there to visit and actually spent more time with them, than with the person she came to visit. Shortly after her arrival she started to feel that the potential chance of a romantic interest seemed distant. During her stay she stayed in a mobile home adjacent the Golden Buck Restaurant inhabited by the young man. He had recently moved to that location. After spending the day with friends of the young man and visiting the Golden Buck on August 14, 1985, a group of young people retreated to the mobile home. A suggestion was made for some of the kids to smoke marijuana which they reportedly did. Kristin was not a pot smoker or drinker and this we are sure made her feel very uncomfortable. At this point it is reported Kristin got up off the couch and then walked out of the trailer. At approximately 11:30 P.M. Kristin was seen by eye witnesses walking on the road for approximately one hour.

After Kristin had been out on the road for a while two people in the trailer decided to go and look for her. The two kids who had been in the trailer claim they heard a scream but could not determine where it came from. They took no further action to look for Kristin and reportedly went home. Several days later her lifeless body was found in a corn field not far from where she was last seen. She had been stabbed and brutally beaten.

Kristin O’Connell was a beautiful and devoted college co-ed from the mid-west, simply visiting a young man she had a romantic interest in. She had hurt no one, nor caused anyone problems. She had simply made a visit to a small town in the beautiful Finger Lake region of upstate New York to visit a boy. A journey similar to that made by thousands of young people all over.

Beware of Imposters, Fakes and Frauds

Here’s an important question most people in the market for a new mate might want to ask themselves. Is this person really who they say they are? Too often today the answer to that question is either “no”. That often charming person who is lavishing you with gifts or who reportedly has his wealth momentarily tied up can be an imposter bent on fleecing you. The problem is that if they are not, it could be a very expensive lesson trying to extricate you from that person’s life. History is filled with great imposters, almost all of them surrounding money and finances. Bernie Madoff, Frank Abagnale, David Hampton and Christian Gerhartsreiter (Clark Rockefeller) are just to name a few. Prudence tells us that it is better to spend a little extra time and resources up front and get to know the person you are dealing with. Low cost background checks can yield information that can alert you to problem areas. Have they lived where they said, do they have multiple dates of births or have they been married previously? It’s best to know up front. Don’t be fooled, check them out now. In the end it will be worth it.
