The October 24, 1961 disappearance of Joan Risch from her Bedford Road home located in Lincoln, Massachusetts has made media headlines for the past sixty years. The unexplained disappearance and questionable crime scene left behind has been the origin point for many conspiracy theories. The new updated book “Masquerade — Joan Carolyn Risch Case: #6162” has cleared up many of the misleading facts found on online sources and podcasts. This the only book based on the actual 5,127-page police case file. The book includes never disclosed information, interviews, and photographs never before released to the public. The question has still yet to be answered, was Joan Risch the mother of two a victim of a violent crime or was the crime scene elaborately staged to hide a concealed plot so Joan could assume another life?
