Shocking and core-shaking, Little Girl Lost reveals the gruesome details of a nine-year-old child’s death. Gripping, this tale was not just an ordinary case of murder, for as the investigation unveiled, a surprising turn of events surfaced. The authorities had captured what can be considered as the most unlikely suspect in Pennsylvanian history. Written by Tammy Mal, this true-to-life story takes readers to a tear-jerking journey, bringing them to a small town, at a time when DNA matching, computers and modern forensic science were yet to be known.

When nine-year old Mae Barrett left church on the night of January 2, 1945, it was the last moment that anyone else had seen her alive. Her mutilated corpse was found the next day in an abandoned house. Her throat was slashed and her face battered beyond recognition.

Her death had brought terror and paranoia to residents in the small town of Vandling. “Who could have committed such a brutal crime against a child who was walking home from church? What kind of animal would discard a little girl like nothing more than trash?” These were just a few of the questions that had baffled the public. Sending shock waves through the small town and surrounding area, the news of the crime held residents hostage within their own homes. Unleashing a paralyzing fear, the disturbing case had stirred panic to the once-peaceful community.

As police doggedly investigated the horrific murder, one key piece of evidence pointed towards thirteen-year-old Myron Semunchick, a brilliant, good looking and extremely popular boy. With the disturbing revelations and pieces of the puzzle coming into surface, the case had been strengthened, leading to the conviction of the youngest person ever charged with first-degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment.
