Susan Maxwell was an 11 year old girl who went missing in July 1982 from Coldstream, Scotland. She lived on the English side of the border and had gone to play tennis with a friend.
Susan's body was found in the Midlands, miles away from her home. She had been sexually assaulted and killed.
Robert Black is now serving life for her murder and the murders of Caroline Hogg and Sarah Harper.
I remember this awful story so well back in 1982. So sad, RIP Susan xx
Little Suzie Maxwell. That's who you are to me. That's who you will always be to me. You can't ever grow up, or age, like most of us. That was taken from you.
The summer of 1982 was a good one. Great weather & the world cup was on. I was 13 & already a grown-up....or so I thought. I was still very innocent. Your disappearance & murder shattered that innocence.
I didn't know you personally but you have remained in my thoughts all these years. Especially when other such tragedies have taken place. I just hope you know what happened to you didn't end 30 years ago. You would most likely have been a mother & possibly a grandmother by now. That was taken from you & your family as well. Life can be brutally cruel at times. You will be in my thoughts till the day I die. Rest in peace little Suzie Maxwell. xx
I knew Susan through my aunty Peggie (she was the brownie leader in Coldstream and Commissioner I believe). Summer holidays I would come up from the south coast of England to visit. I can remember Susan very clearly, I must of been only about 8 myself. There were celebrations going on in the town, fancy dress competitions etc. I was paired up with Susan to do a treasure hunt around Coldstream. We had to find a picture of Prince Charles, I remember that most clearly! Susan was lovely to me, did not bat an eye about doing the treasure hunt with me, when she could have been with her friends, Obviously a caring, kind individual whose life was taken away too quickly. Maybe one day, when its my turn, we can do a treasure hunt 'up there'! Sweet dreams and God Bless, Maggie
I will always remember you as my very first best friend. Bumping our heads together which made me cry...so you cried too..then we laughed. Your twin pram was so cool! Love those childhood memories of you and will keep them forever. The horror of you going missing..then even worse when they found you. I knew you for such a short time...what a special girl to leave such brilliant memories. All my love, think of you often..your first best mate, Melanie xxxx
MERRY CHRISTMAS ANGEL
With love as always xxxxx
you would have been my age now all that time has passed you are still in my thoughts i remember when you went missing my mum prayed for your safe return so sad there is so many evil people walking this earth
Gone but not forgotten
I was a child when you went missing pet. I remember the news and even though I was about 9 years old at the time, I knew that something bad had happened. When it came on the news that you had been found I was very sad and I cried. I don't know why but you have always been in my memories and I am so sorry that you never made it hope pet. I am a father of 4 beautiful children and I went on to become a police officer. Although the ba**ard was eventually caught, it is no consolation to your family. I truly hope that there is a heaven and that you are amongst friends. God Bless x
I remember so well that summer you disapeared. You and I were at school together and we all felt the pain for you and your lovely family. As I have grown up, got married and had my children who are now past the age that we were when you were taken, I have thought so often of you and what you had gone through. My eldest child was a baby when the police arrested your murderer. I was so overwhelmed with emotion when he was caught. Thank God he was.
You are never far from my thoughts - or my children's either. Your family have been so brave and gracious, I'm sure you are as proud of them as they are of you.
Susan I remember when you went missing when I lived in England so long ago and praying oh so hard that this beautiful little girl would be found alive. I'm so sorry you did not get to go home to the family that love you oh so much, but I know now you are resting in the arms of angels. God bless little one.
rest in peace
