The two young ladies that were attacked were reported to be 16 and 17 years of age at the time of the attack and would be in their late 70’s now.

These attacks were reported to the Brown County Sheriff’s Office in the Fall of 1957.  One attack was believed to have occurred in northwest Brown County, currently near the Suamico Cemetery at Vickery Park in the Village of Suamico and the other in the area of Memorial Drive at Duck Creek in the Village of Howard.
