Rebecca Ann Triska


15 year old White Female : Went Missing on 9-19-1958 from Ambridge Pennsylvania...


http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1804dfpa.html


Triska was last seen in a car with an unidentified older male at the Route 88 Drive-In Restaurant in Harmony Township just north of Ambridge Pennsylvania on 9-19-1958..


She never made it home...


Rebecca Ann Triska had gone to a teen dance in Ambridge with friends...


Becky left the dance & two boys who happened to leave the dance around the same time spoke to Becky in front of the theater. ..


Rebecca Ann Triska was alone but an older man they estimated around 35 was standing in the area & offered to give Becky a ride home...


The boys commented that the man was too old to give Becky a ride & they said he walked away...


Police arrested an Ambridge man when they learned that the car Becky was last seen in closely resembled his car...


At the time he was a parolee on a Florida morals charge...


He denied knowing Becky but refused to take a lie detector test...


He was held on suspicion of a felony while his car was sent to the Allegheny County Crime Lab...


He had an alibi...


Police learned the identity of the girl that he had a date with on the night Becky disappeared...


With no body & not enough evidence he was released...


He was never charged for Becky's murder...


In 1962 this same man was convicted & sentenced to death for the 1961 beating death of 13-year old Jane Benfield of Centralia Columbia County...


His death sentence was later commuted to life...


He died in prison of cancer in the '90s...


Rebecca Ann Triska was declared dead in 1967...


Her body has never been found...
