Hi Justice4Sharon, I'm so sorry for the tragic loss of your mother.
I know you must've been quite young when she was killed, but do you have any more details? Like where was she working as a waitress? Where was she last seen before she died, and by whom? Did the police ever have any persons of interest in her case (like a boyfriend, coworker, neighbor, etc)?
Have you tried contacting newspapers and TV stations in St. Louis to see if they'll do a story on your mom to generate interest?

I was 6 months old when my mother died... I have alot of questions you like you but I am starting to believe some of what I was told is a lie I am a private person so know please every1 that this is taking alot of courage
I was told that I was taken from my mother when I was a infant (age unknown to me)....
I was told she was murdered in East St louis County Mo Feb 24 1981 She was raped stabbed.burnt and thrown into a river and was only identified through dental remains ....
NOW last week I recieved a newspaper clip from the funeral home because I want to know everything now so I can break the cycle ....
I have the pdf yet I need help loading it if some one can help ...(can only do so much on a droid lol) Email me ...
The newspaper clipping was alittle different then the story I knew ...

If it is a "cold case" and nobody is working it shouldn't you be privy to the particulars at this late stage in the case? Does that area have a "Cold Case" Division? Maybe call and see if you can make an appointment to go in and speak to either the Lead Detective that has the file or request it be reviewed by the Cold Case Team. They really have no way of knowing if it is really "you" at the other end of the line, is what I am thinking may be part of the problem. Obviously, I have no way of knowing, though.
THE PDF you have...am I understanding that you want to email it to somebody to post on your behalf? If so I can help you with that.

Should I delete... Scared me like now I should bite my tounge
Yes can u email me...
I said I would fly out there last time I called homocide said thats not necessary and gave me another voicemail

Also, did you mean to put your name up there like that? I am not so sure that is such a good idea hun. Whoever murdered your mom may still be out there.
You can "edit" and delete the post, if you like.
ETA: Thank you for removing the last name.
I see you have changed it to read that it is your fathers name and not your own. TY TY

Are you her oldest child? Who handled the affairs of her death when she passed? What I am getting at here is if you are naturally now the lead representative for your family. LE would rather deal with just one person v. multiple family members, IMO.
Another thing, I think WS likes to vett the family members posting so nobody can hijack their nic and post as if they are them etc... You need to PM a mod, I think. Let me find the right link for that...brb

Hi Justice4Sharon, welcome to Websleuths.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your Mom and for the horrible way she was found murdered.
I searched the archives of articles by google and didn't find any additional information about your Mom. That doesn't mean there aren't any---it just means they aren't available through the internet.

Justice4Sharon has a newspaper article that was printed right after the murder.
Justice4Sharon is in the process of trying to get permission to post the article in full and is also sending information to meet the vetting requirements as a family member.

Justice4Sharon: So very sorry to hear about your Mother. If she was found in East St Louis, it would be St Clair County IL. Although the Diamond Cabaret is actually in Sauget.Diamond Cabaret is near some other clubs, the clubs both strip and non are open late, and it is a "party" area, so to speak. They have their own Police, but, I don't know, it could be East St Louis PD. I hope not. That city (ESTL ) is in crisis and very recently laid off ALL clerks in the PD.
I don't live in East St Louis or Sauget, but, am local in IL and am familiar with the area. I believe the paper in the area would be the Belleville News Democrat, although it might have been in the St Louis Paper.
If there is anything I can do, let me know and I will help if I can.
All kinds of hugs!

Wow its funny u name all three towns that was my first hurdle "o mam it must be in that department or county its not our case feels like thats exactly why it wasnt solved because she was in the middle of so many countys or wateva....

Am curious what paper this was in. Also can you share more from the article you have. Do you know where your Mother was a waitress? Ironically, at about that time I did do a lot of the club seen in the Bi State (both Mo and IL) area. Group I ran with frequented a club named Pops, near Diamond Cabaret. Can't recall this murder though
Oh, and one more thing. No matter what police dept investigated, the St Clair County Coroner would have handled the details of autopsy and such. Rick Stone is current coroner and is a good man. If his office can help with anything I am sure they will. He likes to close cold cases.
All kinds of hugs!
