    Disappearance Remains Mystery After 7 Years

    By Christine M. Johnson
    POSTED: March 06, 1988

    It was just an hour shy of quitting time when Gloria Korzon told her boss in a shaky voice that she was leaving work early.

    Korzon, a quiet, attractive woman who worked as a wire assembler at Bridgeport Control in Horsham, seemed agitated, saying only that she "just had to leave," her former supervisor recalled in an interview last week.

    Seven years ago today, Korzon disappeared. She left without taking her car, wallet, clothing or even a toothbrush from her home in Warrington Township, Bucks County. Her family, co-workers and friends have not seen her since.

    Korzon, 38, had been working steadily for three years. Each week, she faithfully called her parents in Massachusetts - until March 6, 1981.

    Those familiar with Korzon - including investigators, co-workers and her stepfather - say they now believe she is dead.

    At least one person disagrees: Korzon's ex-husband, William, who after a three-year court battle was granted a divorce last year on grounds of desertion. William Korzon is the only person to claim he has seen Gloria Korzon since March 1981. In an interview in 1986, he said he had talked to her by phone several times since 1981, and in court papers, he said he had seen her as recently as last November.

    "There's no question that Gloria Korzon is missing under the most suspicious of circumstances," Bucks County District Attorney Alan M. Rubenstein said in an interview last week.

    "While it is possible that Mrs. Korzon may have disappeared innocently, it's unlikely given the nature of her background and her ties to the community," Rubenstein said. Others familiar with the case say they have "no doubt" she's dead.

    Rubenstein and other investigators refuse to say whether William Korzon is a murder suspect.

    In 1986, Warrington police obtained a search warrant that allowed them twice to dig up his back yard to look for Gloria Korzon's body, court records show. The warrant indicated that police thought Gloria Korzon and her dog, Max, were buried there.

    Using a backhoe, police found only the dog's remains buried about six feet behind the Korzons' modest stone ranch home secluded by evergreens.

    In July and August of 1986 after the backhoes came, William Korzon spoke extensively about the case in interviews with The Inquirer. He talked freely about his life, his wife and her disappearance. He described a turbulent, 20- year marriage filled with allegations that he often beat her and threatened her life.

    Since the divorce, William Korzon, 45, has refused to discuss the matter, saying police are "twisting everything everybody says." He said the divorce proceedings and the investigation not only ruined his yard, but also destroyed his work and his life.

    And his troubles aren't over. The divorce settlement is being contested in Bucks County Court by an attorney for Gloria Korzon's estate who argues that William Korzon lied about the couple's possessions when he testified in previous court hearings. John S. Thome Jr. will ask the court to reopen the divorce case during a hearing set for March 15.

    But William Korzon first must find another attorney to represent him. Last month his attorney, William Goldman Sr., withdrew from the case, citing "a breakdown in (their) attorney-client relationship." William Korzon believes Goldman no longer is sympathetic to his case, court records show.

    *

    Gloria Korzon left a series of notes and court documents stretching back into the late 1970s that tell a story of a stormy marriage and life.

    When she met William Korzon in the early 1960s, Gloria Kidder was working as a bookkeeper at F.W. Sickle in Massachusetts, William Korzon said.

    He loved her reddish-brown hair and her hazel eyes, and said she had "a neat pair of legs," Korzon recalled in the 1986 interviews. They married Jan. 28, 1967, and settled in western Massachusetts - two 24-year-olds who were ''very ambitious and striving to get ahead."

    Within nine months, William Korzon was arrested by Springfield City police and charged with threatening to murder his wife, the 1986 search warrant showed. The disposition of that charge was unavailable.

    Things seemed to quiet down when the couple moved to Warrington in 1970, said William Korzon, a mechanical engineer with a passion for speedboats and bass fishing.

    Then trouble began anew. For at least three years before Gloria Korzon disappeared, the couple fought bitterly. Their fights often drew police to the Warrington home. Gloria Korzon filed - but never followed through on - two court petitions requesting protection in 1978 and 1980.

    The first petition alleged that her husband regularly beat her "until she was bloody," according to the search warrant. Several times in April 1978, the petition alleged, William Korzon "threatened to kill" his wife and her German shepherd, Max.

    continued

    In 1978, she wrote that her husband threatened: "You'll be lucky if you're still alive . . . talking . . . breathing . . . walking." She also said: "He has threatened to break my arms and legs, head, back and knock my teeth out."

    In one of the couple's last known fights, Gloria suffered a broken arm on June 15, 1980. During an interview with police at the couple's home, William Korzon "admitted to pushing his wife and breaking her arm," the warrant said.

    When she went to work with her arm in a sling, Gloria Korzon told co-worker Kevin Gardner that she had fallen at a construction site while looking at new houses, Gardner said in an interview last week.

    Recalling the fights in the 1986 interviews, William Korzon said that his wife broke her collarbone after she slipped and fell when he "blocked one of her punches."

    He said his wife often started the fights after she had been drinking alcohol. Once she slashed his shoulder with a broken beer bottle, William Korzon said. He rolled up his sleeve to show a jagged scar.

    Another time, "she came out totally nude and chased me around the back yard with a knife," he said.

    "We haven't had the most pleasant relationship," he said.

    "My name has taken the brunt of this attack. Justice seemed to shut its eyes, turn away and I'm getting beat on," William Korzon said.

    He later launched a letter-writing crusade in the township, urging officials to take action against Police Chief John D. Bonargo Sr.

    "I guess he (Bonargo) wants to close the case out and I'm the most likely

    suspect," Korzon said in the 1986 interviews. "He wants to close it out on my head. . . . I supposedly shot my wife and shot my dog and buried them in a common grave."

    Bonargo declined to talk about William Korzon or the case, nor would other officers with the department comment.

    Goldman, William Korzon's former attorney, said last month that he thought investigators were overreaching when they dug up the yard. "There's no foundation, no basis for their suspicions and allegations," Goldman said in a telephone interview. He declined further comment.

    William Korzon said he and his wife were separated off and on in 1980 and 1981. At a meeting in a bank parking lot in Warrington in 1982, he gave his wife her share of the income tax returns, he said. He said she has called him periodically over the years and he believes she is either in Florida or South Carolina, or somewhere in New England.

    According to court records, William Korzon said Gloria called him last November, saying she wanted her 1968 Jaguar - one of her possessions under dispute in the estate case. He contended that he gave it to her. But he invoked his Fifth Amendment right during a hearing on the matter on Dec. 24 when questions about the car arose. In January, William Korzon spent several hours in Bucks County Prison after being found in civil contempt of court

    because he refused to cooperate in the divorce proceeding. The Jaguar was eventually found at a Bucks County car dealership.

    Gloria Korzon's parents, Raymond and Pearl Kidder, never accepted that their daughter simply disappeared.

    From the day of her disappearance until July 1981, Ray Kidder said he tried to contact his stepdaughter about 40 times. He left messages on an answering machine or talked to William Korzon, who said his wife was "unable to come to the phone." William Korzon promised to relay the messages, but there was still no word from their daughter.

    In July, Ray Kidder shared his worries in a call to Bonargo - telling the police chief of a strange Mother's Day card his wife received, purportedly

    from his stepdaughter. The card was signed by "Gloria Korzon," but the signature did not resemble their daughter's handwriting and Gloria Korzon never signed her last name in correspondence to her parents, according to the search warrant.

    Kidder said Gloria had sent a certified letter to her parents in late February 1978. Before mailing the letter, Gloria warned her father in a phone call not to open it unless "something happened to her."

    The letter, opened months later, described repeated beatings and threats against her life, according to the warrant.

    Raymond Kidder, 71, said in a Philadelphia Daily News story in January that he believes his stepdaughter is dead. In a telephone interview from his home in Chicopee, Mass., on Monday, Kidder said his daughter's disappearance was ''too heart-wrenching" to talk about anymore. His wife, Pearl, died of cancer last July.

    Six days after Gloria Korzon's disappearance, William Korzon went to see her boss, Joseph Weber, and said that his wife was resigning, Weber said.

    "He said she had medical problems and it would be better (for her) to be home with her parents," Weber recalled in a telephone interview last week. ''She was a good worker. We were sorry to lose her."

    Weber said he never learned why Gloria Korzon was so anxious to leave work that day seven years ago. "She was upset about something. She was upset, then she was out the door," Weber said.

    The case is "like something out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie," he said.

    "It just doesn't seem right," said another former supervisor, James Mulherin. "You tend to believe foul play."

    Bucks Judge Declares Warrington Woman Officially Dead Gloria Korzon Has Not Been Seen Or Heard From For 16 Years. Her Body Never Turned Up. No One Has Been Charged In Her Suspicious Disappearance In 1981.

    By Erin Einhorn, INQUIRER CORRESPONDENT
    POSTED: September 11, 1997

    She never had a memorial service.

    No funeral. No interment. No obituary.

    But sixteen years after the last time anyone claims to have seen or heard from Gloria Korzon, the Warrington woman who disappeared under suspicious circumstances in 1981 has been declared dead by a Bucks County judge.

    ``I really would have rather not had to face it all,'' said her brother Ralph Kidder, who traveled from his Massachusetts home this week to finally close the book on his sister's life. ``But she hasn't been seen, hasn't been heard from. There's been no Social Security activity, no tax activity in 16 years. I would think any person coming to those facts would think, yes, she probably is deceased.''

    Korzon was last seen on March 6, 1981, when, at age 38, she left early from her job as an assembly-line worker at a Horsham electronics firm called Bridgeport Control.

    According to court documents, none of her personal belongings turned up missing. If she left on her own, she took no money, no pocketbook, no clothes, no car.

    ``It was the belief of the Warrington Township Police Department that she met with foul play,'' District Attorney Alan Rubenstein said yesterday.

    But no body ever turned up, and no one was charged with murder.

    In 1986, police twice dug up the backyard of William Korzon, her husband, to look for a body. Also, court documents revealed a history of abuse in the couple's relationship.

    Kidder has heard about the murder investigation, he said, and he is familiar with the odd details that surfaced in subsequent years, about how William Korzon, who claimed to have had regular contact with his wife, later admitted that he had lied, according to his court testimony in 1988.

    But at this time, Kidder said, he draws no conclusions.

    ``I don't want anything in the paper that indicates I am pointing guilt at any party involved in this case because I just don't know,'' Kidder said.

    ``I really would like to see the police have another look at things, though. Maybe somebody remembers something that they didn't think too much about at the time,'' he said. ``Maybe with different methods of examining evidence, they might turn up something overlooked 16 years ago.''

    The statute of limitations never expires on murder, Rubenstein said. But he would not say whether the Korzon investigation is still active.

    Kidder petitioned the court for the death declaration, he said, so that he could process her $55,945 estate.

    That money has been in an escrow account in Kidder's name since William Korzon formally divorced his missing wife in 1986. Kidder's accountant advised him to dissolve that account to simplify his finances, he said.

    William Korzon was present at yesterday's brief hearing in Bucks County Orphans Court, said attorney David Heckler, who was representing Kidder.

    Korzon had no formal interest in the hearing, Heckler said, but came to inquire about a missing title on a 1968 Jaguar, which was a matter of dispute in the divorce proceedings.

    Husband Admits Lie In Divorce, Disappearance

    By Christine M. Johnson, Special to The Inquirer
    POSTED: March 25, 1988

    William Korzon had consistently scoffed at suggestions that his ex-wife, Gloria, was dead. He said he had seen her periodically since her disappearance in 1981.

    At a five-hour hearing in Bucks County Court in Doylestown yesterday, Korzon admitted, though, that he had lied in November when he said he saw her that month. He also admitted having made several misrepresentations at the couple's divorce hearings in 1986.

    Police and Gloria Korzon's family and friends have said they believe that her husband was actually trying to divorce a dead woman.

    In 1987, after three court hearings the previous year, William Korzon was granted a divorce on the ground that his wife had deserted him.

    At yesterday's hearing on reopening the divorce case and its settlement of assets, the attorney for her estate, John S. Thome Jr., contended that William Korzon had "lied" and "played games" throughout the proceeding leading to the divorce.

    Korzon's attorney, Robert Naragon, argued yesterday that although his client's earlier testimony may have been perjury, it did not constitute ''extrinsic fraud," one of the factors under consideration if the divorce case is reopened.

    "There is no doubt in my mind there has been deception, and a lot of it," said Judge Leonard B. Sokolove, who asked attorneys to submit briefs.

    Gloria Korzon has been missing under suspicious circumstances since March 6, 1981, according to law enforcement authorities. The woman, then 38, was last seen that day when she left early from her job as an assembly-line worker at a Horsham electronics firm, Bridgeport Control. For at least three years before that, William Korzon beat her and threatened to kill her, according to court records.

    Bucks County District Attorney Alan M. Rubenstein and other investigators have refused to say that William Korzon is a murder suspect, but in 1986, Warrington police obtained a search warrant that allowed them twice to dig up his back yard looking for Gloria Korzon's body, according to court records. They found only the remains of her German shepherd, Max.

    Although others believe she is dead, William Korzon, 45, testified yesterday that he had seen her on several occasions after March 6, 1981.

    About every five months in 1981 and 1982, he testified, "she would call and ask if I would change the oil in her car," adding that she would drive over and he would do her the favor. "I didn't know where she was living. She kept that a big secret," he said.

    Warrington Police Lt. Thomas Krysick testified yesterday that Korzon told police in 1981 that he had not recently been in touch with his wife.

    Thome asked Korzon whether other people's interest in her whereabouts had ever led him to ask Gloria in 1982: "Everybody thinks you're dead. Come over to the police station and show them you're alive."

    "No one had posed the question that she wasn't alive," Korzon said.

    Korzon testified that in June 1982, Gloria Korzon sold her 1971 Opel to him at their home on Pickertown Road in Warrington. He admitted, however, that he lied last November about having seen her then.

    As part of the divorce distribution hearing, he was scheduled to have her 1968 Jaguar appraised Nov. 7, but he had to be out of state. He told a former attorney that she had already come to his house and retrieved it, making reappraisal unnecessary.

    "I was only concerned about finishing the job in Massachusetts, and I couldn't be in two places at one time," said Korzon, who is a mechanical engineer. "It's a fabrication; it's a lie."

    Korzon also testified that he inflated a bill for carpentry work done on his house at a time when the estate was being divided.

    "I think that it's clear that Mr. Korzon, whenever he can, lies about things under oath," Thome argued. He called the 1986 divorce hearings "a complete travesty."

    On the question of his ignorance that others suspected his wife had disappeared, however, Korzon was supported by a former girlfriend, Barbara Gordeuk.

    Gordeuk testified that Korzon had not been aware that he was the subject of a police investigation until they dug up the back yard.

    "Some of the people that knew her said that, knowing her personality, she could be hiding and watching it all . . . sitting back laughing," Gordeuk testified.

    Gloria S Korzon
    Missing March 6, 1981 from Warrington, Bucks County

    Vital Statistics
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 37 - about a month shy of her 38th birthday
    Date of Birth: April 21, 1943
    Height: 5"3" to 5'5"
    Weight: 115 - 120 lbs
    Hair Color: Dark Brown
    Eye Color: Hazel
    Race: White
    Dentals: Xrays & dental records available
    Other: all personal effects; car, cash, credit cards, etc. were left behind.

    Case Details
    The last time Gloria was seen alive was on Friday, March 9, 1981 as she left her job in Horsham, Montgomery County, just a short 6 miles or so from her home. She has not been seen since.

    Gloria's brother had last spoken to her in early 1981, when he called her from his home in Massachusetts to say that their mother had undergone heart bypass surgery and was in the hospital. In the following weeks, her family made dozens of calls, being told that she either wasn't there or wouldn't come to the phone. They left numerous messages, but never heard back from Gloria.

    In April 1981 Gloria's mother received a Mother's Day card, ostensibly from Gloria. It was signed not with the familiar "Love, Gloria" but the more formal "Gloria Korzon". And it wasn't in her handwriting. That is when her family contacted the police. When the then-police chief went to the Korzon residence, Gloria's husband said that she had gone to visit an aunt in Florida. Gloria had an aunt in Florida, but she had not heard from Gloria in months.

    Gloria was married to William Korzon, known in the neighborhood as a gun collector and wife beater. About a month before Gloria disappeared, she sent a letter to her stepfather, instructing him not to open it unless something happened to her. The letter was a 3-page list of beatings that Gloria claimed to had suffered at the hands of her husband. The Korzons were not unknown to local police, who had responded to at least eight domestic incidents at their home between 1976 and 1980. Gloria filed for protection from abuse orders against William, but would always withdraw her complaints before the court hearings.

    William Korzon was, and still is, the prime suspect in the disappearance and probable death of his wife. Police obtained a search warrant in 1986 to dig up his back yard. The first search turned up nothing, but the second search a week later yielded the body of Gloria's pet dog.

    William Korzon divorced Gloria in 1987. She was declared dead in 1997 - sixteen years after she disappeared. Her mother died in July 1987, her step-father died in December 1989. Her brother, her only sibling, became sole beneficiary of her estate.

    Gloria's husband has never been charged with her murder and her body has never been found.

Her her car, wallet, clothing were all left behind at her home.

      Korzon had been working steadily for three years. Each week, she called her parents in Massachusetts, until March 6, 1981. Her family, co-workers and friends have not seen her since. Six days after Gloria Korzon's disappearance, William Korzon went to see her boss and said that his wife was resigning because of medical problems.

      Gloria Korzon's parents, Raymond and Pearl Kidder, never accepted that their daughter simply disappeared. From the day of her disappearance until July 1981, Ray Kidder said he tried to contact his stepdaughter about 40 times. He left messages on an answering machine or talked to William Korzon, who said his wife was "unable to come to the phone." William Korzon promised to relay the messages, but there was still no word from their daughter.

      Korzon had been married since 1967, and there was a history of domestic abuse. Gloria Korzon filed - but never followed through on - two court petitions requesting protection in 1978 and 1980. The first petition alleged that her husband regularly beat her "until she was bloody," according to the search warrant. Several times in April 1978, the petition alleged, William Korzon "threatened to kill" his wife and her German shepherd, Max. Gloria suffered a broken arm on June 15, 1980. During an interview with police at the couple's home, William Korzon "admitted to pushing his wife and breaking her arm," the warrant said.

      In 1986, Warrington police obtained a search warrant that allowed them twice to dig up her husband's back yard to look for Gloria Korzon's body, court records show. The warrant indicated that police thought Gloria Korzon and her dog, Max, were buried there. Using a backhoe, police found only the dog's remains buried about six feet behind the Korzons' modest stone ranch home.

      According to her husband Gloria called him periodically over the years and he believes she is either in Florida or South Carolina, or somewhere in New England.

      Foul play is suspected.

    Circumstances
    Gloria was last seen on Friday, March 9, 1981 as she left her job in Horsham, Montgomery County.
    Gloria's brother had last spoken to her in early 1981, when he called her from his home in Massachusetts to say that their mother had undergone heart bypass surgery and was in the hospital. In the following weeks, her family made dozens of calls, being told that she either wasn't there or wouldn't come to the phone. They left numerous messages, but never heard back from Gloria.
    In April 1981 Gloria's mother received a Mother's Day card, ostensibly from Gloria. It was signed not with the familiar "Love, Gloria" but the more formal "Gloria Korzon". And it wasn't in her handwriting. That is when her family contacted the police. When the police chief went to the Korzon residence, Gloria's husband said that she had gone to visit an aunt in Florida. Gloria had an aunt in Florida, but she had not heard from Gloria in months.
    About a month before Gloria disappeared, she sent a letter to her stepfather, instructing him not to open it unless something happened to her. The letter was a 3-page list of beatings that Gloria claimed to had suffered at the hands of her husband. The Korzons were not unknown to local police, who had responded to at least eight domestic incidents at their home between 1976 and 1980. Gloria filed for protection from abuse orders, but would always withdraw her complaints before the court hearings.
    Gloria was declared dead in 1997, sixteen years after she disappeared. Foul play is suspected.

    These cases where we pretty much know who did it and they don't have enough information to find the victims just drive me nuts!

    I just want to throw his butt in the klink until he tells us what he did with her! Since her dog was buried, we can guess Gloria is probably under the ground somewhere.

    I agree completely.

    I wonder if she suddenly left work because he called her to say that he had killed her beloved dog. He made a mockery of law enforcement with all of the lies he told. This is one sick person.
