  • Carolyn Loretta Wasilewski (12 giugno 1940 - 8 novembre 1954) era una ragazza di 14 anni il cui omicidio irrisolto conquistò le prime pagine dei giornali statunitensi durante intensive ricerche per il suo assassino a Baltimora, nel Maryland. I suoi resti furono trovati presso un cantiere ferroviario da un ingegnere la mattina del 9 novembre 1954. Non lontano dalla sua casa, la polizia trovò macchie di sangue ed oggetti personali appartenenti alla Wasilewski. "Molto prima che venisse identificata la polizia aveva concluso che l'omicidio era accaduto altrove e che fosse stata gettata da un ponte o lanciata addosso a dei binari," riportò il The Baltimore Sun nel 1954. Scritto sulla coscia destra con un rossetto o merbromina c'era il nome Paul. Il primo novembre, una settimana prima, aveva testimoniato in un caso di violenza carnale riguardante una delle sue amiche. Una colonna pubblicata sul Baltimore Sun nel marzo del 2000 si collegava all'omicidio, senza fare menzione del nome della Wasilewski. Un'altra colonna sul Sun, scritta da Frederick N. Rasmussen, descriveva nel dettaglio la scoperta del corpo e delle indagini, insieme alla folla che partecipò ai funerali, insieme a una dichiarazione di un investigatore di Baltimora che disse che l'interesse nel caso vecchio mezzo secolo era ancora presente e che "riceviamo spesso telefonate nel periodo dell'anniversario dell'omicidio." Il colonnista del Sun Jacques Kelly dichiarò che il caso è divenuto una sorta di "leggenda di Baltimora," perché è rimasto irrisolto. L'omicidio e la sua notorietà a Baltimora ispirò "liberamente" il film di John Waters Cry-Baby. Secondo Waters la copertura che i media diedero al caso influì negativamente sulla sottocultura giovanile "drape" di Baltimora.
  • Carolyn Loretta Wasilewski (June 12, 1940 - November 8, 1954) was the 14-year-old victim of an unsolved murder that made national headlines during an intensive search for suspects near her home in Baltimore, Maryland. Her remains were discovered in a rail yard by an engineer on a Pennsy express train bound to Baltimore from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on the morning of November 9, 1954. Not far from her family's home, police found bloodstains and personal items belonging to Wasilewski. "Long before she was identified police had concluded that the murder had occurred elsewhere and she had been thrown from the bridge or dragged down a bank to the tracks," reported The Baltimore Sun in 1954. Written on her right thigh in lipstick or Mercurochrome was the name Paul. Seven days earlier on November 1, she had testified in a carnal knowledge case involving one of her girl friends. A column published in the Baltimore Sun in March, 2000 referred to the murder, without mentioning Wasilewski by name. It provoked a column, also in the Sun, by Frederick N. Rasmussen in which he describes the discovery of the body and investigation in some detail, along with the crowds that gathered for the funeral, and quotes a Baltimore homicide detective who said that interest in the half-century-old murder was still surfacing, "We still get calls generally around the anniversary of the murder." Baltimore Sun columnist Jacques Kelly speculated that the case became a "Baltimore legend," precisely because it was unsolved. The murder and its period of notoriety in Baltimore "loosely" inspired the John Waters' film Cry-Baby. Waters recalls the media's framing of the case in the context of the negative aspects of Baltimore's "drape" youth subculture.
