McCullough seeks new murder trial
SYCAMORE – The man found guilty last month of kidnapping and killing Maria Ridulph more than 50 years ago wants a new trial or a not guilty verdict.
Jack D. McCullough, 72, is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of murder, kidnapping and abduction of an infant. Prosecutors say that on Dec. 3, 1957, he abducted 7-year-old Ridulph, who was last seen near her home at the corner of Center Cross Street and Archie Place, and killed her.
Ridulph’s remains were found five months later in rural Jo Daviess County. During the trial, a forensic anthropologist testified that marks on bones of her throat and chest areas looked to be those left by a knife.
