    From your link, Bessie:

    Diana Ault's husband has an affair with a postal worker.
    Sarah DeLeon's boyfriend has an affair with the same postal worker.

    Am I getting this right?

    And both these women end up getting killed?

    This sounds like a hit. They were looking for something specific in the house. It would be something they thought the Aults had (whether they did or not). It would be something that did not really fit with their lifestyle. But, they honestly may not have owned any such thing.

    But, they shot her without hesitation and then just left.

    speculation and moo

    Investigators recently announced that they are close to solving the murder of Sarah DeLeon. They suspect the perpetrator is also responsible for the murder of Diana Ault.

    It is great there seems to be a big development after so many years it gives me hope for other cases that appear ice cold at the moment.

    Not really much of an update, except that there are still no arrests in either case. Ugh.

    "The Kansas City, Kansas Police Department (KCKPD) believes a 26-year-old cold case murder is connected to another unsolved murder just across the border in Missouri. They say that the link is a romantic rival and they are focused on a female suspect.And yet, since the police department made that extraordinary announcement at a press conference this past May, there has not been an arrest in either case."

    Whoever it is sounds extremely dangerous and needs to be taken off the streets.

    There has been an arrest in the more-than-likely related case of Sarah Jo DeLeon.

    I do not know how to share a link, but many also mention DianaAult's murder, so they believe they are connected

    Judge Dismisses Murder Charge in 1989 Cold Case

    "On Friday, a Wyandotte County judge dismissed the murder case against 48-year-old Carolyn J. Heckert of Smithville, Missouri.

    Heckert was arrested last October and charged with 1st degree murder for the death of 18-year-old Sarah De Leon. She pleaded not guilty.

    At the time, authorities said they believed that Ms. Heckert was responsible for the death of Ms. De Leon and linked to the death of another woman -- motivated by romantic rivalry. They also said they believed that Ms. Heckert was involved in multiple instances involving the harassment and intimidation of romantic rivals.

    Ms. De Leon's body was found near train tracks in Kansas City, Kansas on December 29, 1989. She had been stabbed 22 times, mostly in the back, neck, and chest. Her car was found abandoned several miles away...

    Judge Roberts said while there was no doubt that there was reasonable suspicion implicating Ms. Heckert for the death of Ms. De Leon, there was nothing linking her beyond motive evidence and behavior evidence. He noted the evidence was "replete of [Ms. Heckert's] deplorable behavior", but did not believe there was enough probable cause to move forward with a trial...

    Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Tatum presented witnesses who testified about Ms. Heckert's increasingly violent and harassing behavior towards her romantic rivals, women that included Ms. De Leon and Diana Ault, a young mother-of-two who was killed in her Independence, Missouri home in 1994. Ms. Heckert, Ms. Tatum said during the hearing, was the common link between the two dead women and investigated as a person of interest in both cases..."

    An in-depth look at the murders of Diana Ault & Sarah DeLeon. It gives more information about the investigation efforts that seemed to really pick up a few years ago. According to the author, the expectation was that charges were going to be brought first in Diana's case.
