Pa. man charged in death of wife who went missing in 1981

Pennsylvania

WARRINGTON, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania man has been charged in the death of his wife who went missing nearly 40 years ago.

Warrington police announced Thursday that William Korzon has been charged with murder, forgery and other counts in the death of Gloria Korzon. He was denied bail during an arraignment hearing, and it’s not known if he’s retained an attorney.

Korzon has maintained his innocence since his wife went missing in March 1981. As he was led out of the courthouse Thursday, he told reporters “she went to Florida” and he has no idea where her body is.

Gloria Korzon was declared deceased in 1997. The affidavit filed in Korzon’s arrest lays out a decades-long pattern of abuse and rage in a tumultuous marriage.

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.
