aka Mariann Colby

Daughter of Edwin Morgan Kautz & Ada Mary Adams. Mother of Dane Colby.

------

Mariann Colby was a Shaker Heights homemaker who had fallen in love with another man. In 1952, the 27-year-old woman obsessively took an interest in a man named John Young, even following him on a date. It got so bad that Young asked Mariann's husband, Robert Colby, to step in and put an end to this unrequited love. He did, and all seemed to be well.

Six years later, the Colby's moved to a house just down the street from the now-married John Young. The two couples' sons became buddies. Over time, the Youngs didn't want their son to spend so much time with little Dane Colby. Tension grew as Mariann wanted to remain friends.

On Aug. 24, 1965, Mariann Colby called and spoke to John Young, the man she used to love. She said she believed his son's jacket was left at her house, so he sent John Cremer Young, Jr. to go collect it.

She shot the boy in the head and hid the gun in three pounds of ground beef in her freezer.

She was found not guilty by reason on insanity on March 25, 1966; she was committed to the Lima State Hospital for the Criminally Insane before being released in 1972.
