Born into Fear - The Crime of Neonaticide
By Linda Canada, For The Paper Store, Inc., June,
Two weeks before Thanksgiving of 1996, Amy
Grossberg checked into a Comfort Inn not far from her dormitory room
at the University of Delaware, where she was a freshman majoring in
art. She was joined by her boyfriend, Brian Peterson, who attended
freshman classes at Gettysburg College in neighboring Pennsylvania
(Petersen, 1996; p. B1). The two had been high school sweethearts at
New Jersey's Ramapo High School before graduation and the beginning
of fall classes at different universities had separated the two
eighteen-year-olds (Hanley, 1998). A typical scenario, one would
assume, of two separated sweethearts seeking off-campus privacy for
a reunion rendezvous.
A typical scenario that became not so typical
when the body of the couple's newborn son was found following the
rendezvous, wrapped in a trash bag and deposited in the dumpster
located behind the motel (Hoffman, 1996).
Seven months later, eighteen-year-old Melissa
Drexler donned her recently purchased prom gown and, like
Cinderella, was off to the ball. Melissa arrived at the Garden
Manor, the chosen site for the Lacey Township High School prom
festivities, around seven p.m. along with her classmates, the New
Jersey senior soon excused herself and headed for the ladies'
restroom (Cooper, 1997). After an interval of some thirty minutes,
Melissa returned to the dance, alternately chatting with classmates
and dancing with her boyfriend, John Lewis (Fields-Meyer, Arias,
Wang & Eftimiades, 1997). Like Cinderella, Melissa carried a
secret with her to the ball, a secret that was discovered before the
clock struck midnight. A secret that she had wrapped in garbage bags
and left in the large wastebasket located in the ladies' room of the
Garden Manor (Cooper, 1997).
