    IN - Charles McGraw, 53, Beech Grove, 7 Oct 1988

    Twenty-five years ago today, on October 7, 1988, Charles McGraw was brutally murdered in by someone who he was sitting with in his car, a silver and maroon '84 Cadillac Seville on the second floor of the parking garage at the now-closed St. Francis Hospital Center on Albany Street in Beech Grove, Indiana. The murder investigation lead to a composite sketch of someone seen getting in McGraw's car with him around 4:30 PM that afternoon, however no suspect was ever identified. Mr. McGraw was later found shot dead in the car by co-workers at around 5:20 PM. At the time of the murder, Mr. McGraw was the Director of Food Services at St. Francis Hospital. He was married with four children.

    At the time the murder took place, the hospital was one of the busiest, most vibrant hospitals in the Indianapolis area. The killing took place in the parking garage, which was very busy at 4:30 PM on a Friday afternoon that was also a payday for hospital employees, but no one reported hearing shots or actually seeing the killing take place.

    Here are some links to news stories about the case:

    Welcome, Pavlovich!

    I've found only one for-free article from 1988. (There are many more pay-per-view articles.) The second one is from 2008 on the twentieth anniversary of McGraw's murder.

    A $10,000 reward is being offered by St. Francis Hospital Center at Beech Grove -- 11 Oct 1988

    Oh, dear. Gambling, extramarital affairs. Lots of possibilities for motive.
