Seattle court appearance in 1957 slaying



SEATTLE (AP) — A former police officer arrested in the 1957 killing of an Illinois girl is scheduled to appear Wednesday in a Seattle courtroom.

Jack Daniel McCullough is being charged with being a fugitive from justice, a charge expected to keep him in custody pending his return to Illinois.

He’s accused in the 1957 abduction-slaying of seven-year-old Maria Ridulph (RIHD’-uhlf) of Sycamore. McCullough lived near the girl and went by a different name at the time of her disappearance.
