Friend recalls moments before Ridulph's disappearance
SYCAMORE – A childhood friend of Maria Ridulph recalled the night of her disappearance during the second day of Jack McCullough's trial Tuesday.
Kathy Sigman-Chapman said on Dec. 3, 1957, a man who introduced himself as Johnny approached her and Ridulph as they were playing outside at the corner of Archie Place and Center Cross Street. The man asked if the girls liked dolls, then offered them a piggy back ride.
Sigman said Johnny took Ridulph on a piggy back ride down the street, but both came right back to the corner. Ridulph then ran about three doors down to her home to get a doll. Sigman waited on the corner with Johnny, where she said she observed him but could not recall any conversation.
