Candlelight vigil held in Franklin for murdered teen who died in 1971


FRANKLIN - Almost a half century later and the murder of 13-year-old Kathy Gloddy of Franklin is still unsolved. But that didn't stop friends and family from keeping her spirit alive on her birthday.
Facing below zero temperatures on Saturday night, Janet Gloddy and classmates of Kathy's gathered outside of Marceau Park, inviting locals to bring a can of dog or cat food to donate to the animal shelter in honor of Kathy's dream of growing up to become a veterinarian.
"I think this is going to be her year that her case is going to be solved. And with the help of Kathy's dream team, hopefully we can make it real," Janet Gloddy said about her younger sister Kathy.
Kathy's body was found 44 years ago in the woods of Franklin brutally beaten,raped and run over multiple times. Throughout the years, her case has been reopened and then closed, leaving her friends and family to nothing but unanswered questions about her murderer.
With the help of a GoFundMe page to raise money towards banners, advertisements, stickers, and posters, along with a petition to Gov. Maggie Hassan asking to take more action on Kathy's case, the residents of Franklin are not giving up.
If you have any information on the murder of Kathy Gloddy, call the NH Cold Case Unit at 603-271-3658
