ON OCT. 11, Eileen Adams may finally get justice after nearly 44 years. That's when suspected sex killer Robert Bowman will be retried for the 1967 torture murder of Eileen, 14 at the time of the slaying. The creepy 75-year-old's first trial ended in a hung jury, although one juror said it was 10-2 to convict. There is a gag order on the defense and prosecution.
The grisly slaying had Satanic elements and was shocking beyond belief when it occurred. It stumped cops for years --even after Bowman's ex-wife told detectives she saw Adams hanging naked, Christ-like in her basement. It's believed Bowman kidnapped the girl, held her captive in his basement for several days using her as a sexual play thing then murdered her. Eileen's body was discovered in a Michigan field in January 1968. She had been tied up with telephone and drapery cords. A nail had been driven through her head.
