Janice And Brandon Beidleman


On Sept. 13, 1981, Janice Beidleman and her 18-month old son, Brandon, left the home of a relative in the area of Myrtle Avenue and Marcia Drive on the north side.

Janice Beidleman told several of her relatives that she was going to stop at a grocery store on the way home to her residence on Beechwold Drive.

She was last seen driving away from her relative's home in her 1974 Chevrolet Vega with her son Brandon in the back seat.

The following afternoon, Janice Beidleman's car was found beneath the Agler Road bridge just west of Sunbury Road.   Janice Beidleman's body and Brandon Beidleman's body were both found floating nearby in Alum Creek.

Janice Beidleman had been beaten and strangled. Brandon Beidleman had been suffocated, investigators said.

Anyone with information about the slayings is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 614-461-8477.
