My high school boyfriend was murdered in January 1985 in his Wisconsin apartment by my biological father who born and raised in that town. I am also a survivor of Shaken Baby Syndrome from my biological father in 1960. My injuries included 'lesions of the mouth' which were misdiagnosed as 'malignant tumors', a broken jaw, skull fractures and subdural hematoma. I spent the entire month of March 1960 in the Madison University Hospital hanging on for dear life.
I was not removed from the house and I went on to meet a young man whom I loved dearly. In 1976, I became pregnant with his son. Michael tried to marry me but I was not allowed to do so. I was led to believe that I would be able to have my child and return to finish my junior and senior year of high school, but when the fall semester started, I was not allowed to attend. One night, my mother entered the room and told me to get up, get dressed and get into the car. She did not tell me where she was taking me but drove me to get an illegal saline abortion when I was more than six and a half months pregnant. It was a boy. The procedure was outlawed by the US Supreme Court the year before I was forced to have it.
Within weeks Michael, the father of my son, got into an auto accident and went into a coma. He came out of the coma, but was paralyzed on one side of his body and was never the same. He had to learn all of his abilities all over again. He managed to live independently, but nine years later my biological father left the house, and went to Michael's apartment and murdered him.
Four years later, my stepmother, who married an upper class-man at the same high school where Michael and I met, dated and conceived our son, went ahead and purposely planned and delivered a child born C-section on the very day Michael was murdered. She was not much older than me and purposely had the child on the very day my biological father murdered Michael.
Michael's mother stood to gain a lot – millions -- upon Michael's death, and was eager to wrap up the investigation and move out of state, which she did in the fall of 1986. She received millions of dollars because she named herself “co-plaintiff”' in the personal injury lawsuit from the auto accident Michael had just weeks after my illegal abortion.
My biological father's mother only had one sibling, who was married to a county deputy. He, the deputy, did everything he could to cover for my biological father's crimes, including murder, in the county. My paternal grandmother also covered for his crimes. My father's only uncle was through marriage. He had no other nephews, so he also went to extremes to cover for his only nephew through marriage. My biological father was/is the only child and the only grandchild and comes from lots of money. He got his way all of the time and it did not matter if what he got away with was legal or not.
I have tried several times to get Michael's mother to help me in seeking justice for Michael's murder, but she continues to ignore me. I realize she stood to gain lots of money after Michael's death and the speedy wrapping up of the bogus investigation.
She lied and said that there was a “chain on the door, but I went through the apartment for the first time in my life in 2011 and there was no indication that there had ever been a chain on the door. I took pictures. There are numerous other inconsistencies that go up as far as the county coroner who is also covering for the murder. I also think that he, the coroner, had had an intimate affair with Michael's mother at one time prior to his having been a coroner when he was a shoe salesman because of the conversation that I had with him in 2006 after he contacted me at my place of employment and told me that I could meet with him and go over Michael's medical report at his office on the following Sunday. I did not realize when I agreed to meet the coroner at his office on the following Sunday that it was Father's Day. I didn't realize this until after I hung up the phone, but had I realized this I would have not agreed to have met him on day.
I believe this day was picked out just to make a fool of me and say something to the effect of, “Yeah, we know your father did it but we don't care.” It's sort of like the good old boys club mentality in this county, which has been perpetuated by my father's only uncle.
My child was taken from me by an illegal abortion. Nine years later, my biological father murdered the father of my son and four years after that, my stepmother went on to purposely plan her pregnancy and deliver a child around the murder date and have the child via c-section on the very day my biological father murdered Michael.
I realize that cold cases are difficult, but I've archived numerous details that I've found and even took photos of the inside of Michael's apartment when I toured it, since it's under new ownership. There were details of the apartment, or the crime scene, where Michael was murdered that I've detailed in the hopes of justice someday.
I am very sure the suspicion of foul play concerning Michael's death was suspected by his mother but because of the fact that she had just lost her second husband the year before Michael's murder and the fact that she had taken care of Michael after his auto accident, I'm she sure felt entitled to the millions Michael received after his accident.
I cannot understand how she could have named herself as a co-plaintiff in the accident in the first place, since Michael was over of legal age at the time of the accident. I met him when I was 15 and he was 17. Furthermore, she was a benefits coordinator with Aetna and I'm sure took out a huge policy on Michael after his accident in 1976. This is fraud.
