Details of Disappearance Gloria was last seen leaving her job at a Horsham, Pennsylvania electronics plant on March 6, 1981. She resided with her husband, William Walter Korzon, in the 2700 block of Packertown Road in Warrington, Pennsylvania.
Her brother, Ralph Kidder, stated he had last spoken to Gloria in February 1981, when he called her to tell her their mother was hospitalized for bypass surgery. After this, Gloria's father made several calls to the Korzon residence and left messages for Gloria, but he was never able to actually speak to his daughter.
Gloria's mother received a Mother's Day card signed "Gloria Korzon" in May of that year, but the signature was not in Gloria's handwriting and she never used her full name in her correspondence to family.
Kidder reported his sister's disappearance to police in July 1981. When police initially went to the Korzon residence to speak to William, he claimed she had gone to visit an aunt in Florida. Gloria did have an aunt in Florida, but the person William named was not her aunt and her real aunt had not seen her in months.
She was close to her family at the time of her disappearance and it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. All of her personal belongings were left behind, including her car, her dog, her driver's license, credit cards, and thousands of dollars in her bank account.
The Korzons married in Massachusetts in 1967, and their relationship was troubled. Less than a year into the marriage, William was arrested for threatening to kill Gloria, and spent time in a Massachusetts mental hospital. In 1968, the couple moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and in 1971 they moved to Warrington.
About a month before her disappearance, Gloria gave a sealed letter to her stepfather and told him not to open it unless something happened to her. After she went missing, he opened and read the letter. It was a three-page list of assaults Gloria claimed William had inflicted on her.
William later filed for divorce from Gloria, on grounds of desertion. The divorce was finalized in 1987. He gave many conflicting accounts as to when he had last seen her. At one point he claimed she had left him in January 1980, but returned periodically until 1982 so he could change the oil in her car. Another time he said he had given Gloria her classic 1968 Jaguar XKE, at her request, in 1987.
William claimed to have had contact with Gloria many times after her disappearance was reported, but he was never able to prove any of his accounts. In 1986, investigators dug up the yard of his home, looking for Gloria's body. They did not find it, but the corpse of her pet dog was located.
One of the witnesses who testified before the grand jury that indicted William was his former girlfriend, Barbara Gordeuk. She stated William repeatedly struck her during their relationship, and once told her, "the same thing is going to happen to you that happened to Gloria."
A photo of him at the time of his arrest is posted with this case summary. He is awaiting trial, and told reporters that he was innocent and Gloria had left him voluntarily and moved to Florida.
Gloria was declared legally dead in 1997. Kidder inherited her estate, which consisted of a $56,000 bank account. Foul play is suspected in her case due to the circumstances involved.
