DAVIDSVILLE, P.A. (AP/ WTAJ)— As a Richland Township Police Department criminal investigator, retired Capt. Tony Palm spent much of his career handling tragic cases that brought criminals to justice.
But for many years, his mind often shifted nearly 50 years into reverse to a case with a small-town, storybook ending, he said. It was the day he reunited a Bedford County family with a 3-year-old girl who was left inside Gee Bee store on Scalp Avenue – a moment captured by a Tribune-Democrat photographer’s lens in 1972.
As it turns out, that “little girl” – Bernadette Imgrund – hadn’t forgotten the day either.
