Information Reported

June 29th, 1979

Home of Dr. Jay C. Smith, convicted of the famous "Main Line Murders." In June 1979, the body of Philadelphia-area school teacher Susan Reinert was found, bound in chains in the trunk of her car in a Harrisburg-area parking lot. Reinert’s daughter and son, ages 11 and 10, had disappeared, never to be found. The married Reinert’s lover, fellow Upper Merion School District High School teacher William Bradfield, was later convicted of plotting the crime and sentenced to life in prison. Bradfield died behind bars in 1998. The man police claimed carried out the killings, the school’s former principal, Jay C. Smith, aka "The Prince of Darkness" also was convicted and sentenced to be executed. Smith was released after evidence, including information secured by former Patriot-News reporter Pete Shellem, indicated misconduct by prosecutors in Smith’s case. Smith died in 2009. In 1998, a photograph that was likely developed in 1986 was found at Smith's residence at 705 W. Valley Forge Road. The photograph shows a small statue of a hooded figure, possibly in a wooded area. Police believe this photograph may hold the key to finding the remains of Karen and Michael Reinert. Searches have been conducted, yet there have been no remains found as of yet. Police continue to take tips as to where this statue may be. If the statue could be found, it would hopefully lead to the recovery of the children’s remains. Along with the photograph, which was found among several boxes, police also found letters that appeared to be written in code. Some theorize that somewhere out in the world, another person involved in the murders exists and could tell them where the Reinert children are.
