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?

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.

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

You might try email or even snail mail. Did they at least give you the name of the lead detective if it is an open case and/or did they say if they have a Cold Case Division?

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.

Take care,
Kat

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.



G'night all.

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.

Blessings!

Well, what it is, I really think that area, if she was found on the IL side of the river, near Diamond Cabaret, that is Sauget. Sauget has a few citizens, but it is basically chemical plants (built around Monsanto Chemical) and clubs. They stay open either all night or till 5 am, been a few years since I was out late, LOL. Sauget does have a police force, but, I personally think they would have called in St. Clair County (the county seat is Belleville). Or maybe the IL state police. For a number of years, the IL State Police provided patrols to East St. Louis, which meets Sauget near the Poplar Street Bridge area. The clubs are not in East St Louis.

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.

Oh and another thought. Justice4Sharon, you mention that you just received a news paper clipping from the funeral home. Was the funeral home in this area? Was your Mother buried here or brought back to Mass?

Umm.. Did you read what he/she wrote? He/she was a 6 month old baby when his/her mother(Sharon) died(murdered)... which means he/she was the only child to Sharon.

Wow I found this....

Oh and one can't forget about all the dead prostitutes that they kept finding in ditches on the east side.......Some sicko was going around killing hookers and dumping the bodies on the side of the road in ditches and stuff.....It was a few years ago......and I don't know if they proved that it was the same person or not....or if they caught the guy.......but enough deadprostitutes turned up on a semi regular basis to make it stick in a person's head.

Thanks for pointing that out. Although you may be very accurate in your assumption it would not be unreasonable to think she may have had 'older' siblings - but then...that would also be just an assumption on my part. It's why I 'asked'

Date of Birth 09/16/1961
Height/Weight 6'0" / 178
Hair/Eyes Black /Brown
Assigned Location Potosi Correctional Center
Address 11593 State Highway O, Mineral Point, MO 63660

=========
You will probably need to enter his name in the search bar again as most DOC sites do not direct link to the offender pages.

Also, unlike some other states, I do not see any listing of his priors, only the last 6 murder convictions. I am trying to definitively ascertain what years he was incarcerated previously.

Still looking...
