    One thought on “Who Killed Betsy?: Uncovering Penn State University's Most Notorious Unsolved Crime”

    1. This was an eerie read for me. I grew up in the town in which Betsy Aardsma was murdered, and am quite familiar with many of the locations mentioned. Granted, I grew up about 25 years after the fact, but I can attest that 'the haunted Pattee library stacks' urban legend was alive and well when I was a teen. I remember googling her story one afternoon, and being frustrated that the murder remained unsolved. I've never encountered any ghosts at Pattee but, as common wisdom holds, truth is often st [...]

    2. Long before Jerry Sandusky, Penn State learned well how to cover up the darkest aspects of human nature. During the Thanksgiving break, in 1969, a young student named Betsy Aardsma was murdered in the creepy stacks inside the Pattee Library. Stabbed once, through the heart. Her killer was never found. These days, reporters can’t even request the old student newspaper articles on the case. They’ve been scrubbed from the web and “misplaced” by the university.That didn’t deter Derek Sherw [...]

    3. Although the information presented was pretty meticulously gathered by very well-meaning and informed people, the actual writing in this book is quite bad and greatly takes away from the impact it would have if it had been written by a professional writer. It has a very loose, unfocused structure (which is pivotal to a crime story which purports to expose the heretofore unnamed killer) and ends rather precipitously, leaving this reader with more questions. Although they make a very good case for [...]

    4. I knew Rick Haefner personally back in the mid-1970s (I was a teenager). He took me in under his wing, and, like so many others mentioned in the book, took me to Penn State, New Paltz college, Ontario, Canada, Death Valley & Shoshone, and Key Largo, Florida. I visited his home in Lancaster many times and met his brother, George, when he lived in California. To be honest, I was quite surprised to learn the things Rick was involved in, his behavior, and even more surprised to learn that I was [...]

    5. This was an easy read. I believe the author is an alumnus of PSU. The reason I read it, was because it was written up in our local Sunday paper. There have been quite a few books written about this subject; this one being the most recent. The killer of Betsy Aardsma was never found and prosecuted. According to Mr. Sherwood's book, the most likely candidate for the murder was a Rick Hafener, who died in the early 2000's. He was questioned and let go. Sherwood questioned a lot of the people who kn [...]

    6. I wanted to know more of Betsy, but it was still an interesting read.I was creeped out for the most part. So many perverts were running amuck. Sickening. Some of the details of what the perverts were doing in the stacks were just disgusting.I also found it to be really sad that gay people couldn't express themselves freely. All the hassles they had to endure just to have an encounter.In the end, I learned that there are too many crazy people walking around. I also felt satisfied that Richard was [...]

    7. Who Killed Betsy brings to light another scandal in Penn State's history. Betsy Aardsma, a graduate student from Michigan was killed in the Penn State Library in November 1969 and the case remains unsolved. There were a few persons of interest in the case but no one has ever been charged with the murder. Derek Sherwood does an excellent job of presenting the facts from the case and uncovering information the university and the state police either rejected or swept under the rug. Who Killed Betsy [...]

    8. I found this book very boring. A lot of details were given as if to prove the authors opinion as to who the murderer is. The investigation as projected in the book seems rather haphazard at best. In today's views it seems that Penn State tried to hide or cover up evidence/information to protect the Penn State name but in order to make that determination you would have to put yourself in the mentality of people back then and not judge by today's standards

    9. When the author focused on the actual murder investigation, the book was interesting. However, I felt that he spent too much time focusing on the supposed murderer's abuse of young boys. I couldn't help but think that including this much detail amounted to nothing more than filler designed to tie in the completely unrelated Sandusky scandal at PSU.

    10. Great comprehensive viewThis is well writtenVery thorough. It covers various people that could have reason to murder. I believe the author's theory. He hit the nail on the head. But, we will never know for sure. Good readwould recommend.

    11. I could not get over the similarities of this case and the current Penn State events, as far as covering up crimes.

    12. Interesting true story. Penn State University does not want to talk about this student's dealth in the library??

    13. After dealing with the investigation, and several possible suspects, finds a suspect with motive, opportunity, and means that the police should have investigated further.
