                   Stalked Victim: Abby Mariage (13) and Kaylen Hoskins (15) were riding their bikes

                   grandmother when at Kaylen’s house who called the police. Abby’s parents went out
05/29/1994    31
                   looking for the van, and when they found the van the driver turned off his lights cause he
                   knew they were watching. The van tried to escape, but he got stopped at a red light.
                   Abby’s mother called the police and gave them the license plate which the van was
                   registered Larry Hall.
                   Officer Neil Pence stopped Larry Hall after he had driven past some girls several times.
                   While searching Larry’s van, he noticed some unusual items such as a spray can of
                   starting fluid, a cotton mask, and cotton balls, a plastic tar, some knives and a length of
05/30/1994    31   rope. The officers often found newspaper articles about Tricia Reitler and a piece of
                   Indiana Wesleyan University stationary with Reitler's name printed on it. Hall was
                   arrested by police and confessed to killing Tricia Reitler. However he was later released

                   to Ashley’s’ house and her mother yelled at the man as he was driving off. Melissa
05/31/1994    31   Selleck told police after the incident that the man with the dark hair and a beard had tried
                   two other times to coax her into his van. Her father went looking for the van and found
                   the same van which was registered to Larry Hall. Police searched a barn that Hall had
                   been using to work on his vehicles. They found straps suspended in the barn that were

                  Detective Sergeant Jeff Whitmer of the Wabash City Police Department received a fax
                  from the Gary Miller at the Vermilion County Sheriff’s Department. The message stated
                  that Miller was interest in discussing two attempted abductions in Georgetown, Illinois.
                  Did Wabash police know a man named Larry Hall? Miller told Whitmer that in both
10/28/1994   31
                  attempted abductions, young girls had identified a town brown van with a license number
                  of 85B3752. When he ran the plate he found it was registered to Larry Hall. He also told

                  Detective Miller arrived in Wabash for an interview with Larry Hall. He was joined by
                  investigators that were investigating the disappearance of Tricia Reitler. Hall was soft
11/02/1994   31   spoken and quiet in his demeanor. Miller noticed that he emitted no outward signs of
                  disturbed behavior. Miller told Hall he was there because some young girls in
                  Georgetown, Illinois had reported someone in a van had harassed them. Acting confused,
                      Hall immediately denied ever being in Georgetown and he said he had not been in Illinois
                      for a long time.

                      of his rights. Hall was asked questions about the Roach abduction and showed hall a
                      picture of Jessica. After seeing the picture Larry Hall hung his head and began to cry,
                      and recounted the events of September 20th, 1993. Hall signed a confession admitting to
                      abducting and murdering Jessica Roach and other girls.

08/18/1997     34     Larry Hall’s second trial began ( four years after Jessica Roach was abducted)

09/10/1998     35     receive a fair trial. Circuit Judges Coffey, Easterbrook and Kanne found his arguments
                      unpersuasive and affirmed Larry Hall’s conviction for the kidnapping of Jessica Roach.
               Late   Indianapolis cold case officers visited Hall to question him about the Michelle Dewey
               40’s   murder and other cases. He denied ever hurting anyone.
