The Cornfield

It was a quieter time, a quieter city then. In 1977, Greeley’s population was less than 50,000, and the Greeley streets were usually quiet at night. But on this night, Aug. 24 and into the 25th, things changed. About 3 a.m. on the morning of Aug. 25, Mary Pierce, a clerk at the downtown Greeley 7-eleven store, was discovered missing. Her body would be found two days later ...more

I remember vividly the events recapped in The Cornfield. I live in Greeley where it all happened. I drive by the cornfield twice each going to and returning from work in Loveland. I think of the victim often and often say a little prayer. No one deserves the hand she was dealt. I also have followed the author/reporter all these years as well. I recommend reading this book. It’s TRUE.

I just moved up here in the last few years and came across this book. I won't ever drive by this field again without thinking about this. True story about a girl kidnapped and murdered in the 70's and 30 years later they found who killed her. Interesting as a new friend I've met was one of the lead investigators. I like the book because it was local to where I am so made it very interesting as you can read through the crime and know exactly what everything looks like and where it is. Ican't wait ...more

I wondered why this book was titled The Cornfield and then I found out why. It's an incredible, well-researched account by Mike Peters of 22-year-old Mary Pierce's horrible ending to her promising adult life which was just beginning in 1977. And my chilling realization that the maniac came back to Greeley Colorado in 1995 for a few years exactly when my daughter was attending the University of Northern Colorado! An excellent read...

Makes me wonder every time I pass a cornfield, "what's really happened in there". It's kind of spooky!!!
