Description

This weekly newspaper investigated "the oldest missing teens case in the United States." Bonnie Bickwit,15, and Mitchel Weiser, 16, vanished in 1973. The two teens from Brooklyn disappeared on their way home after a large outdoor rock event held in Watkins Glen. The newspaper revealed an eyewitness account that the teenagers "drowned accidentally on July 28, 1973, in an upstate New York river..." The investigation exposed "decades of deception, negligence and incompetence by the New York City Police Department and the upstate New York Sullivan County Sheriff's Department." The reporter found that "both law enforcement agencies had lost the original case files, and failed to conduct the most basic interviews 27 years ago...They had been lying to the families of both teens for decades."
