The Murder of Henry Cordle

On Monday, 22 August 1977, Henry B. Cordle, 74, was found murdered in his room at the YMCA in Toledo, Ohio. The newspaper said he had been stabbed 15-20 times. The number was actually 37.

On Sunday, 11 September 1977, police officers came to the YMCA room of Michael W. Ustaszewski, 18, and arrested him for the murder of Henry Cordle.

Michael A. Morris, another resident of the YMCA, had been arrested for the murder of Henry Cordle the day before.

Both Ustaszewski and Morris were convicted of aggravated murder and sentenced to life. Michael Ustaszewski would be eligible for parole after serving 15 years. He would then be 33 years old.
