Kawinkidink Alert: Could the murders of Betsy Aardsma and Pauline Storment be connected?


Kawinkidink Alert! 🕵️‍♂️

Okay, let's get serious.

There's a curious connection between two unsolved cases – one happened in the Library at Penn State University on 1969 and the other sometime after leaving the Library at the University of Arkansas in 1971. Now, the first case refrences the Betsy Aardsma and the second is the murder of Pauline Storment. Now, I know, it might seem like a far stretch, but hang on, gang! These two cases have more in common than you might think, and it's got my my inner Scooby Doo - Mystery Machine brain thinking.
Betsy's story kicks off in 1969 when she met a tragic end right in Penn State's library – stabbed without a sound. 😱 And guess what? Two years later, in 1971, Pauline faced a similar fate, not in the library but it could have been when considering Pauline roommate Alice Pat Murphy stated that for Pauline to have been murdered around 9:45 PM at night something prompted her to leave the library early. Was it an uneasy feeling of being stalked? Then there the mention from Joe Clifton who was one of the first to respond to Pauline's screams that night when he stated at first it didn't seem all to serious more of a girl "having a good time." Some how I don't she was calling the hogs.

Here's where it gets extra spooky – both killers wore glasses, not uncommon I suppose but interesting nonetheless.

Also according a Andrea Cavallier in an article publish on Nov. 28, 2021, 5:53 PM CST, by NBCnews titled Unsolved murder of Penn State student Betsy Aardsma haunts community 52 years after she was stabbed in library stacks.

"Some believe she was murdered by serial killer Ted Bundy, as it was discovered he was at Temple University around the time of the incident. Law enforcement, however, did not see a correlation between her stabbing and the Bundy murders, Simmers told Dateline." Nor does David DeKok author of Murder in the Stacks: Penn State, Betsy Aardsma, and the Killer Who Got Away. Tiny note, Ted Bundy was also known to have family in Arkansas and come through from time to time.
What's even more mind-boggling is the irony of their composite sketches. I mean, it's a sketch, faulty memories and all, but the two sketches share some similarities.

The Pauline Storment Story!

Meet Pauline Storment, a quintessential All-American girl whose life was tragically cut short. Born to parents Paul Storment and Lillian Elam on April 3, 1944, in Ozark, Arkansas, she embodied the ideals of her time. Interestingly, Pauline's lineage also included a connection to former Monterey County, California Sheriff's Deputy Benjamin W. Storment, her grandfather.   During her time at Ozark High School, Pauline's leadership skills shone through as she took on the role of President of the Freshman Class, a detail captured in the accompanying photograph. Those closest to her remember Pauline as a kind and gentle soul, known for her dedication to studies and her aversion to frivolity. Following two years at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, her path led her to marry Charles Joseph Pate in June of 1965 in Booneville, Arkansas.

Seeking the Devil Within the Details: The Pauline Storment Murder!

"Myths and legends don't just materialize out of thin air; nothing does, nor can it. There's always a kernel of truth beneath, no matter how distorted it might become." - Isaac Asimov A little over fifty years ago, on a warm April Monday night, precisely the 12th of 1971, my cousin Pauline Storment had her life tragically taken at 9:45. For most of my life, I knew little about the case, except that she was a University of Arkansas student who was murdered while walking home from college. The perpetrator was another student, shielded from prosecution, possibly connected to university officials.  So, how does an Isaac Asimov quote relate to this case? The essential truths lie within the details, where the devil hides. But how am I related to Pauline Storment? She's my twice-removed first cousin, but that doesn't tell the whole story. This connection traces back to my maternal grandfather, AJ "Buddy" Stacks, Pauline's first cousin. Papa Buddy was th
