This website is created as a living and public record of the case — a way to organize the known facts surrounding the disappearance and murder of Julie Monson, and a way to separate fact from fiction. The goal is to create an exhaustive study of the case, but doing so will take time, effort and the public’s help.

All accounts on this site come from published accounts and first-person interviews conducted by the author. All works are copyrighted by their respective owners. The author wishes to credit The Citizen, the Post-Standard, Finger Lakes Times, and Robert Schillagi for researching and archiving works related to the case throughout the past 30 years.
