This article tells about three grizzle murders inside the Washington D.C. Beltway in 1970 and how all three have gone unsolved and are cold case files.

What you are about to read is the three true unsolved murder cases that happened inside The Washington D.C Metropolitan Beltway. They all happened within days of each other and they still go unsolved.

It was Sunday night around 10:00 PM Eastern Standard Time that my best friend, Debbie Poole and I were trying to get in touch with my ex boyfriend, Doug Dailey who lived in Bethesda, Maryland  at the time.

Debbie and I tried many times and Doug's telephone line was constantly busy. We did not know that he was talking to Sherry Kennedy at the time. She had gone over to The Montgomery Village Apartments to visit with a friend, Lisa Levine. She was babysitting at the time and she had told Sherry she had to stay off the telephone because the people she was babysitting for would be calling frequently to check on their children.

Lisa relayed to me that Sherry and she got into some kind of disagreement about using the phone and she decided to walk over to see Doug. They lived in two different directions.

Democracy Blvd was the dividing line between Potomac and Bethesda. The apartments that Lisa was baby sitting at was located in the subdivision of Cabin John which is a part of Potomac, Maryland.

Sherry left Lisa around 10:30 PM EST and told Doug she would be over at his house on Bellhaven Road in Bethesda, Maryland no later that 11:30 PM EST. He agreed to stay up and wait up for her.

When Sherry did not make it by 11:30 PM Debbie and I guess that Doug decided that she had either gone home or decided to remain with Lisa.

It was not until the next day, January 18, 1970, that we found out that Sherry Kennedy was murdered. They found her body not more than five miles from her home in a dried up ravine. She had not been sexually assaulted. She had been murdered by someone the Police and The FBI said by using an Ice Pick.

Several days later Sherry Kennedy was laid to rest at Lincoln National Cemetery in Washington .D.C and her mother, father, brother, moved out of the Washington D.C. Area.

Sherry's mother was expecting a new child at the time of Sherry's murder.

The other two cases I read about, however, I was not connected with them.

Here are the two URL's connected with the three cases. They all go unsolved to this very day. Lucie

Someone over at as me if Potomac, Maryland and Bethesda, Maryland was a black neighborhood No, they were predominately white neighborhoods at the time of all three of the murders. The neighborhoods in Bethesda where Doug live in 1970 was a mixture of Catholics, Jewish, and Protestants and they were segregated. There were a few Asian Americans just moving into the neighborhood. It was considered a reverently safe neighborhood to live in.

The area that Sherry Kennedy and the school teacher lived in was a new subdivision of Cabin John in Potomac, Maryland. However, no one knows what kind of monsters go around driving in their cars or trucks looking to prey upon innocent young women. In this case all three were very innocent. Lucie

I was born in Bethesda, Maryland and I knew this area well. However, by the time The Montgomery Village Apartments opened up I lived in Alexandria, Virginia.

Doug told Debbie and me he had met Sherry and Lisa at an Ice Skating Rink in Potomac, Maryland in December of 1969.

Doug would be turning 16 years old on February 24, 1970 and I would be turning 15 on June 14, 1970. I don't know when Sherry Kennedy would have turned 16.

Debbie and I got an un-busy signal from Doug's telephone around 10:30 PM EST. This is the approximate time Sherry left to go to Doug's house in Bethesda, but never made it.
