She was found, alive, 19 months later.

1992 - William was 74 years old when in April, Bosnia-Herzegovina declared independence from Yugoslavia. The newly created Bosnian Serb army then began a campaign against Muslim Bosniaks and Bosnian Croats - killing, raping, torturing, beating and robbing - and resulting in the deaths of over 100,000.

1995 - In the year of William H Silcox's passing, on October 16th, the Million Man March took place on the National Mall in Washington DC.
