Homicide Victim, 1975
Francis Daniel Crocetti was just 14-years-old when his body was found by a couple of kids playing down by a stream in Yale Heights early one morning in March of 1975.
“Danny,” as he was called, went to a party with friends the evening of March 24 and was last seen around 11 p.m. in the 4300 block of Allen Drive, just down the street from Our Lady of Victory School where police would respond four days later after his body was discovered in the nearby stream. Two boys playing behind their houses on Melbourne Road, 21229 made the grim discovery and reported it at 9:39 a.m. on Friday morning, March 28, 1975.
Anyone with information regarding this case may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
