Seeking info: Tradin' Times

Today, I spoke to a woman who used to work at the Tradin' Times with Amy's mother and it reminded me of how little we know about Margaret Mihaljevic and the environment she was working in at the time of her daughter's abduction. It's always seemed like a blind spot in the investigation.

So if you or anyone you know of worked at the Tradin Times in 1989, please contact me.

I did find out that Margaret actually worked reception there and was the first person anyone talked to when they walked in.

James, you are inspirational. Plain and simple. I certainly hope you don't let people's negativity get to you in anyway! The fact that they're talking means that they're reading and Amy's story and your dedication to her justice are spreading. Your work does not fall on blind eyes or deaf ears.

Much love to you and your work, keep your head up!

I have 2 questions:

Did Margaret have a picture of Amy on her desk in the reception area?

Are there extant copies of the newspaper? Are there any classified ads that may have been placed by any of the suspects?

James, you are doing great!

Yep, what anonymous said.

James, will you let your readers know when the special about Amy's abduction will air?

A name in the Las Vegas paper a few years back took my eye. It was the. Obituary of Margaret Mihaljevic. I am formerly from Ohio and lived on State Rte 224 . Lived west of Nova,west of where Amy was found. I was taking my oldest daughter back and forth to Akron Barbizon when this happened. I remember the fear I instilled in my four daughters about talking to strangers. Now I live outside of Vegas and when I saw Amy's mothers obituary I felt sadness that this case was never solved. No mother should ever have to go through this. Margaret moved out here to be near her mother.

My memory was that the police at the time did
check-out Amy's Mom's workplace and social hangouts. A longtime Bay resident told me he and others in the community always felt the killer was
someone who knew Amy's Mom from one of the local
bars she hung out at. And that's how the killer found out about Amy.

You would think that since the killers said he knew her Mom from work, that would be one of the first places
they looked at was Trade in Times workers and advertisers who dealt with Amy's Mom.

James, hang in there. I'm from Amherst and this story has always had a place in my heart. Amy went missing on my birthday and her body was found while I was in the hospital with the birth of my child. It is heartbreaking that the murderer's identity has not been discovered. I also had an 8 year old at the time, that I was afraid to let out of my sight. I pray for a breakthrough in this case.
