Parkway Murders

On June 2, 1969, the bodies of Elizabeth Perry, of Excelsior, Minnesota, and Susan Davis, of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, were found 20 feet from each other in the “secluded underbrush” off the parkway just inside the border of Egg Harbor Township, according to The Press of Atlantic City’s archives.
