Open wounds: Mysterious killings of teen girls in New Jersey remain unsolved after 50 years
We need your support. Subscribe to syracuse. By Chris Libonati clibonati syracuse.On a summer night 50 years ago, Jackie Harp trooped home after a rousing practice session of the Imperial Knights, her school's all-girl drum and bugle corps in Midland Park, N. Harp, a year-old with a pageboy haircut, was seen 30 minutes later walking just five blocks from her Birch St.
She was still clutching the leather sling she used to carry her band flag. But when midnight arrived with no sign of the girl — the youngest of Leroy Harp's five daughters — her mother phoned police. A citizen found Jackie's body the next morning in a wooded sliver along Goffle Creek, just 25 paces from a house on dead-end Morrow Road.
The eighth-grader had been punched in the face and strangled with her flag sling. Police said the attack was sexually motivated, although she was not raped. The teen, last seen the previous night in Hackensack, had been garroted, but had not been raped. And on July 14,three days before the grim Harp anniversary, another Bergen teenager turned up missing. Denise Falasca, 15, left her Closter home that evening to meet a friend.
Her body was found the next day outside a Saddle Brook cemetery, a mile from where Blase was found. Falasca had been strangled with her crucifix chain and dumped from a car, wearing only bellbottom jeans and a pink bra.
The Harp, Blase and Falasca homicides were among a terrifying sequence of attacks on teens and young women that prompted panic in the northern New Jersey suburbs about sexual predators. Other victims included Alys Eberhardt, 18, raped and stabbed more than 50 times in her Fair Lawn home on Sept. In an era when eight out of 10 homicides in the United States were cleared by arrest, Bergen authorities failed to find the killer in all these cases. And that abysmal record is intact a half-century later, to the exasperation of the victims' loved ones, many of whom remain deeply engaged in the search for justice.
Some want fresh forensic work to attempt to match evidence with the latest DNA technology, even if that means exhumations. Bergen cops insist they are hampered by haphazard records and long-lost evidence. The investigative files are a rat's nest — "like opening a steamer trunk," as one cop told a reporter. Informer county prosecutor Larry McClure all but dismissed the possibility of a serial predator, despite what Michael Gross told The News in Trust me: They've been referenced and cross-referenced.
Some cops are convinced that the killer of one or more of the teens was locked up long ago for other crimes. Among the possibilities is Robert Reldan of Tenafly, convicted in the strangulation sex murders of two Bergen women, Susan Reynes, 26, of Haworth, and Susan Reeve, 22, of Demarest. Reldan, who did prison time for rape in the late '60s, has been implicated in other murders.

Now 77, he is a lifer in New Jersey. DNA linked him to the sex murders of two other Monmouth teenagers in the s, but he died in prison before he could face charges. Authorities have also scrutinized Raymond Alves, a convicted Bergen rapist suspected of other such crimes in the s. History suggests resolution is unlikely without a confession, but that hasn't deterred new amateur sleuthing.
A Midland Park schoolmate of Jackie Harp has invested many hours in re-examining that case and others. He and Karen Miller, Falasca's sister, declined to talk publicly about what they have discovered.
But they told the Justice Story they are still hopeful of new developments. Skip to content. Robert Zarinsky r.

The autopsy, conducted Wednesday, did not reveal a precise time of death, but Holl said further investigation leads police to believe he was killed sometime after Marilyn Flax dropped off a ransom in marked bills at a diner about a half mile away from where the car was eventually found.
