55 years after her death, 7 year old Maria Ridulph's
killer has been found guilty. An emotionless jack McCullough sat still in his
chair as the judge read the verdict, guilty on all charges.
Upon hearing the verdict, Ridulph's family erupted into cheers of joy and had to be warned by judge James Hallock to quiet down or be removed from the court. At a press conference later, members of the Ridulph family expressed feelings of relief after 55 years of waiting for little Maria's killer to be brought to justice.
