    IN-Lorraine Kirkley Valparaiso nurse died in 1999

    Authorities said they may have recovered the body of a Valparaiso nurse who died in 1999.

    Indiana investigators said have found a bag similar to the one in which Malinski said he put Kirkley's body. The contents of that bag will be sent to a crime lab for identification.

    Earlier on Friday, Malinski accompanied authorities to a rural field in Jasper County. A forensic expert from Indianapolis was also on hand, NBC5's Anita Padilla reported. A backhoe and cadaver dogs were also brought in to aid in the search.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Killer buries news story with body

    The July 23, 1999, Post-Tribune told the story:

    “Robert Kirkley came home from work and found the lights on, the garage door open and his wife and her sport utility vehicle missing.”

    “Porter County police Chief Deputy David Lain is requesting the public’s help in finding Lorraine Kirkley and her emerald green 1994 Ford Explorer with Indiana license number 64B7174.”

    The story meant something to David Malinski — enough to bury that day’s edition of the Post-Tribune with his victim’s body.

    That was more than six years ago.

    After hours of searching with probes and shovels Friday morning, investigators found the precise site of Lorraine Kirkley's body by spotting a rusty can of Deep Woods Off insect spray.

    Malinski found religion in prison and in a letter to the media, he makes "an appeal to other offenders who are holding secrets to unresolved crimes" to seek out God and turn their lives around.

    It's unfortunate that it took him 6 years....

    Forensic experts will gather Monday for a detailed examination of human remains believed to be those of an Indiana woman missing and presumed dead since 1999.
    The unearthed human remains, which were wrapped in a tarp, will be examined at the Jasper County Hospital morgue by a team led by Lake County forensic pathologist Dr. John Cavanaugh.
    A forensic anthropologist from the University of Indianapolis and an entomologist will also participate in the autopsy, along with Jasper County Coroner Dr. Gordon Klockow.
    "The identity hasn't been confirmed, but the preliminary investigation indicates it is Lorraine Kirkley," Klockow told The Times of Munster for a story published Sunday.
    Identifying the remains using dental records, photographs and descriptions of clothing Lorraine Kirkley was wearing when she vanished will be the easy part.
    More difficult will be determining the cause and manner of death, said Klockow and Porter County Sheriff Department Chief Deputy David Lain.
    "It will be problematic," said Lain, unless the cause is obvious.
    Klockow said a routine autopsy takes about two hours to complete, but it is difficult to predict how long Monday's examination will take.
    Officials said Malinski volunteered the information because he wanted to join a prison church, but he was told he first had to come clean about his crime.

    Unhappy

    Autopsy finds missing nurse was strangled

    RENSSELAER, Ind. (AP) - Officials say a body found on a northern

    Indiana farm is that of a Valparaiso woman who vanished in 1999.

    An autopsy today determined that 34-year-old Lorraine Kirkley

    was strangled -- and that she fought her attacker.

    Jasper County Coroner Dr. Gordon Klockow says the body was

    identified using dental records.

    The body was unearthed Friday after David Malinski, who was

    convicted in 2000 of murdering Kirkley, told authorities he buried

    her body on property owned at the time by his father.

    Malinski and Kirkley had both worked at Porter Memorial Hospital

    before she disappeared in July of 1999.

    Investigators believe he took Kirkley to his Chesterton home,

    where he sexually tortured her and killed her.

    I wonder how they determined that she fought her attacker?

    Her family waited a long time to finally find some peace. I'm glad that the killer finally came forward and told LE where he buried her. I wish other killers who sincerely have given their lives to Christ would follow this guy's lead and let LE know where their victims are. It's just to bad that this killer didn't turn his life around before he murdered this lady. Wonder why he was already in prison...another murder? Did they ever say if they found her vehicle?

    I am pretty familiar with this case because I lived in the area at the time the crime occurred and it was a big news story.

    Malinski had no prior criminal record at all, was a former high school football star with a nice house and a pretty wife. He and Mrs. Kirkley were co-workers, she a registered nurse, and he some sort of exercise therapist. I knew someone who went to their facility for therapy after a heart attack; Malinski was his therapist and he said he was a nice, soft spoken guy.

    Apparently Malinski had some fixation on Lorraine Kirkley, he had burglarized her house in the past, and his wife was aware of this. The wife (who was also a nurse, I think) was out of town the weekend Kirkley disappeared, and when she returned she apparently suspected something, because she went to the police and Malinski was questioned and later arrested. I really don't think they ever would have linked him to the crime if his wife hadn't come forward.

    His despicable lawyers took advantage of the fact that there was no body found and actually tried to get the jury to believe that Kirkley and Malinski were lovers and that she had run away on her own. Unfortunately for the murdering SOB, he had taken some polaroid pictures during the commission of the crime, and told a jailhouse snitch about them. The pictures apparently made it quite clear that Lorraine Kirkley was indeed dead.

    Malinski appealed the case a few years back and his conviction was upheld, so I guess he had nothing to lose at this point. I suppose he deserves a shred of credit for finally coming clean and revealing the location of the body. A very small shred.

    Oh, and yes they did find her vehicle burned out in some field in the next county, a few days after she was reported missing. It was nowhere near the area where her body was found. Still can't believe he buried her on his father's property..ironically his father was found dead in a pond there a few years ago, ruled accidental. The property now belongs to Malinski's brother.

    I pray her husband and family finally have some closure although I know they never really will.

    An autopsy Monday on the remains of a woman missing since 1999 determined she was strangled, officials said.
    Officials used dental records to identify the body found on a northern Indiana farm as Lorraine Kirkley, 34, Jasper County Coroner Dr. Gordon Klockow said.

    Klockow described the killing as "a nasty homicide."
    "I'm very saddened by the brutality that one person can do to another," he said.
    Examiners found Kirkley's killer had strangled her with his hands, and there were signs that she had been handcuffed, officials said. She also clearly had fought her attacker.

    Examiners found Kirkley's killer had strangled her with his hands, and there were signs that she had been handcuffed, officials said. She also clearly had fought her attacker.
    "She suffered a lot of defensive wounds, a lot of contusions," Klockow said during a news conference Monday night at Jasper County Hospital. "It was very obvious there was a struggle."

    Examiners determined that the woman was dead before her partially clothed body was buried in plastic bags bound with black duct tape. There were also signs that she had been handcuffed.
    Jasper County Sheriff Orville Perry said the woman was buried with a copy of a local newspaper dated July 23, 1999 -- two days after her abduction -- and items bearing her name.

    A funeral for a woman slain in 1999 will be held Saturday, two weeks after the man who confessed to her killing helped police find her body.
    Hundreds of people, including family members, acquaintances and police officers who investigated her murder, are expected to attend services for Lorraine Kirkley at Fulton Baptist Temple Church, 50 miles south of South Bend.

    Questions I have

    Although I got the impression that L.E. is glad to close the books on this one I think they ought to seriously reexamin the father's 'accidental drowning'. And I wonder: Just how 'clean' did the perp come to the L.E. anyway? I mean he had a secret torture room in his house set up? And we are to believe he only used it on one person?

    Is more known on this perps past? Was he a budding serial killer or a ripe one with other crimes under his belt that need to be discovered?

    Excellent questions doc. I thought that it was something he had set up when he planned her kidnapping. But you make a good point.
    Are there other missing women in that area?
    Is there any printed info on the father's drowning available?

    Slain nurse is finally home

    After 6 years, Lorraine Kirkley's body found; funeral is called a homecoming

    The detectives never forgot Lorraine Kirkley. They arrested her killer, David Malinski, and watched a jury sentence him to 155 years in prison. But investigators never found the body of the young nurse who disappeared from northern Indiana in 1999. The missing woman with the short red hair, high cheekbones and sweet smile continued to haunt them.
