I have been writing about Anna Maciejewska for what? Over three years at this point? I was thinking about her again recently as I was watching some crime solving mystery show hosted by Paula Zahn on Discovery ID. Then I stumbled across this random You Tube by someone unknown.
There hasn’t been any media coverage since December, 2019 when 6 ABC ran this:
This report was done as Mike Noone and Tom Hogan were winding up their time in the Chester County District Attorney’s Office. I know Mike a little bit and I can tell you this case always weighed on him and Tom Hogan. People love to be hard on these offices but this investigation is also the responsibility of the Pennsylvania State Police. When is the last time we heard from them? Is the case still active or is it just gathering dust as the proverbial unsolved mystery on a shelf in a storage room somewhere?
Sorry not sorry, it bothers me. It always has. You watch news report after news report of other missing women. You see their cases worked on and resolved, why not Anna Maciejewska? Why doesn’t she matter?
I would love to ask current Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan for an update but don’t know how to do it. I also don’t want to sound like a bitch dogging law enforcement and the district attorney, but lordy people, is there any news? I know ongoing investigations mean folks in the know are tight lipped, but I think of Anna’s elderly parents and in the COVID19 world in which we live and they live many thousands of miles away. When is the last time they saw their beloved grandson? He must be so big now, right? It makes you wonder if he has any memories of his beloved mother and if his father keeps her memory alive? Allen Gould, the perpetual puzzle. Anna’s presumed widower at this point and he has never really spoken of her has he?
And then there is Dateline NBC, 48 Hours on CBS and 20/20 on ABC. Can we get ANY of these people interested?
I just think that is what it is going to take to get this moving again. National media coverage. Other missing women get it, why NOT Anna Maciejewska?
Please contact the Chester County District Attorney’s office, the Pennsylvania State Police and any media outlet you can think of especially on a national level. It is way past time to bring Anna home and provide her family with closure.
I never knew Anna. But I have three women who are friends of mine who are from Poland. Like Anna, highly educated. Like Anna, they emigrated to the US for a better life. But unlike Anna, they are still alive and I am so lucky to have them in my life.
Anna we haven’t forgotten you. Even if we never met you. We want you to come home for your family. For your memory. For your son. That little boy deserves more than a question mark next to your name as he grows up.
