Press Release: 49th Anniversary of WVU Coed Abduction

Morgantown, WV - January 18, 2019 marked the 49th anniversary of the disappearance of Mared Malarik and Karen Ferrell, an unresolved crime that still haunts north central West Virginia. The WVU coeds, heading to their dorm on a cold Sunday night, hitched a ride – common in 1970s Morgantown. In an unknown car, with a person unknown, the pair passed friends waiting for a bus and have never been seen alive again. At least not by anyone but their murderer(s).
