Eventually i was issued a Carrick High school OVT ID and it showed I was in the Electric Wiring course which helped stop the issues but for those couple months it was a real pain. The Principle Dr. Nicklaus use to get a big laugh over the whole thing.
SO I can sympathize with a gentleman who got accused of robbing and Kidnapping a Girl I went to grade school with Denise Wisniewski who lived couple blocks from me and who was a clerk at a Fotomat kiosk in Mt Lebanon - Castle Shanon .
Fotomats where very popular kiosk to drop off your camera film to get developed when I was a young man they where everywhere.
|Fotomat similar to one Denise worked at.|
Robbed kidnapped and held overnight in a cabin in the woods till she was finally released she first Identified
Robert Dillen a Photographer as he had a striking resemblance to the true suspect Frank J. Jezeiorski
Poor Robert Dillen went thru hell till the real culprit was caught. He had to end up moving out of PA. I do not know if he ever fully recovered or was made whole after going thru $30,000 he borrowed from his parents for legal defenses.
The whole incident was so intriguing a made for TV movie was produced which I am still trying to find the name of.
This was definitely one of those It could never happen to me nightmares that Happened to Robert Dillen and a NYPD Detective who found himself in a similar situation till culprit was caught.
and recently happened to a Museum Security guard here in Pittsburgh who was jailed for almost a year till it was proved he was at class that evening. thats why i always keep track where I am working and what i am dong it is to easy to get accused and then have to prove it was not you.
