Robbery was ruled out as a motive because a considerable amount of money was found both in the cash register and on Mr. Mustric.
We have been looking for info on this case for over a year now. Getting the exact date tracked down was the hardest part. We were told it was 1965, 1968, 1977, 1981, etc. This year, at the Columbiana County Fair, we were given a tip that Mr. Mustric was buried at Grandview Cemetery. When we went there to ask about him, the currater said he was in Hope Cemetery. So, now we have the case and the story. Is this case unsolved? That is what we are now looking for. As far as we know it is not. However, there are a lot of years to look into to find this answer. If anyone knows for sure, please let us know. We asked The Salem Police Department about this case last year, but they are short staffed and can not take the time to look this information up for us. Belinda is checking her contacts to see what they can find out. In the mean time, if anyone out there knows anything about this double murder, please let us know.
If you have any information on this case that might help to solve it if it is in fact, unsolved, please contact the Salem Police Department.
