  • Details of Disappearance
    Margaret was last seen getting off a bus on June 24, 1974. Fox, who had just graduated from St. Paul School, took a bus from her Burlington City home to Mount Holly to meet a "John Marshall," who offered her a baby-sitting job by phone. She was last seen getting off the bus in Mount Holly and walking toward the downtown area near Mill and High streets. She was to meet with the man there.

    After Fox disappeared, her family did receive a phone call and two letters demanding a ransom. The second letter indicated she had been killed. Periodic calls have been received, but the leads never amounted to anything.
