    CA - Janet Kovacich, 27, Auburn, 8 Sept 1982

    Sad story, but at least the police are renewing the effort.
    There's an article in the Sacbee, but I cannot link it. I've tried! Hopefully, one of ya'll computer savvy types can link it.

    "Auburn police have arrested Paul Kovacich Jr. in connection with the 1982 death of his wife, Janet.


    Kovacich was taken into custody Tuesday night in Foresthill and booked into the Placer County Jail on a no-bail warrant...."

    I am very, very interested in finding out what evidence they have agains Kovacich, since they have no body. Placer county seems to be on a kick of prosecuting without a body these days...we'll have to see how it all works out.
    Rest in peace little Marcus.

    Where is Jaycee Lee Dugard?

    That is wonderful. I'll bet every time this case was re-opened that husband held his breath. Beings he was a cop at the time he probably thought he had covered all of his bases.

    I hope that this Janet receives justice. Now if we could just get justice for our other Janet in Durham.

    I'm not far from you... I'm in Sacramento! I would love it if you could keep me up to date... I only catch what I can on the local news shows / websites. And Janet does deserve justice!

    Just wanted to put up an update... I stopped by my local library and checked that book, Nature Noir, where this case is discussed in one of the chapters! I was curious in what it has to say. Still planning on attending on oct 19th - unless that is just for jury selection - no, that court date is probably just for him to GET a court date to start his trial... hmmm... I'll have to investigate that and see. Maybe I'll just go anyway! LOL! I remember I attended a couple of the court hearings on Garcia, and in one of them, I looked up from scribbling some notes - and he was staring straight at me!! but I kept my cool... starting straight back at him until he turned away... LOL!! I met Christie's mom, dad, and sister at one of these hearings... hmm... this forum doesn't have a "hug" icon... who do I talk to about this??!!

    Cheers everyone - have a good afternoon~

    Thanks for the update Niner! It's just a sad shame Janet has had to wait all these years for justice...

    Nope, he didn't make it - house wasn't worth enough to put up the funds:

    Kovacich Jailed Again in Alleged Wife Killing

    A former Placer County sheriff's deputy was rearrested and remains held without bail in connection with the suspected murder of his wife 25 years ago, Auburn Police authorities said.

    ~snip~

    Thursday's arrest came just hours after Kovacich's latest court appearance, postponing the next step in Kovacich's trial until next month. Citing Couzens' gag order, an Auburn police spokesperson declined to discuss any circumstances surrounding the latest arrest.

    Me too, chico!! LOL! Okay - I guess the trial date, or another hearing (?) is scheduled for April 10th. I'll try & get to that one - I hope!! I DO have a laptop now... and IF the courtroom has wi-fi access - I'm good to go!! I guess I'll find out if the wi-fi works when I get to court! I wonder if they will let me keep my laptop open?? I could make a "press pass" for Websleuths - couldn't I?? An excuse for having my laptop open and typing - ??!!
    Anyway - just thought I'd bring this to the current page...
