PRESS RELEASE


Cold Case Tuesday: State Police continue to investigate the 1967 homicide of two Onondaga County teens.

On August 12, 1967, the bodies of 14-year-old Mary Ann Marzullo and 13-year-old Jacqueline Saunders were located after they were reported missing.

The New York State Police continue to investigate the 1967 homicide of 14-year-old Mary Ann Marzullo, North Syracuse, New York and 13-year-old Jacqueline Saunders, of Mattydale, New York.

On August 11, 1967, at approximately 8:00 pm, Marzullo and Saunders left the Marzullo home in North Syracuse and walked to the Mattydale Field Days.

Witnesses did see the girls at the event, with the last sightings of the girls between 10:45 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., walking northbound on Brewerton Road in Mattydale.

When the girls did not return to the home at the agreed upon time, family went searching for the teens, then reported them missing to law enforcement.

On August 12, the bodies of both teens were found in a field on Oxbow Road, in the town of Cicero.

An autopsy revealed they had been strangled.

Many leads were followed up on during that time period and the case has remained open. Several interviews of potential suspects have been completed throughout the years, however, this homicide has never been solved, and no charges were filed. 
 
Anyone with information on his disappearance is asked to call Troop D Headquarters at (315) 366-6000.

All calls can be kept anonymous.
