  1. My name is Paul Scharff and I am the eldest son of Ron Scharff. Please go to the facebook group McHenry County 1981. The group is dedicated in solving the murder of my father and Patricia Freeman and asking why this was not solved 26 years earlier. As we moved forward we will be reporting to the group our progress. Also posted to the group is old newspaper clippings, pictures of my father and his killer, interviews and much more. Thank you for reading and your support.
