|Birth: ||Nov. 9, 1976|
May 15, 1985
Rima was a third-grade student at St. Helen's Elementary School. She loved school, especially art class. On the afternoon of May 15, 1985, she was walking home from school, when she stopped to proudly show a neighbor an art project she'd made. She then continued walking the two blocks towards her family's residence, but she never arrived. A massive search was launched with few leads. Finally, in 1996, Joseph Kondro, a close friend of Rima's family, was arrested when another child was abducted and killed. He then confessed to murdering Rima in a deal to avoid the death penalty, and was sentenced to a 55-year prison term instead. He told authorities the area where Rima's body could be found, but she was never located. Until she is, this website remains as a respectful place of remembrance.
Many thanks to Valenciaღ Angel of Mine ƸӜƷ for her kindness in sponsoring Rima's memorial page. She is a very special lady.
