    THE DETAILS:
    25-year-old murder mystery re-emerges

    Who killed Tillie Schilling in her Bethel Park home?

    Monday, September 22, 2008
    By Milan Simonich, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Twenty-five years ago someone beat and choked Tillie Schilling to death in her Bethel Park living room.Twenty-five years after somebody beat and choked Tillie Schilling to death in her Bethel Park living room, three things are certain.

    Her husband, Leo, was in Florida when the killing happened, keeping company with another woman.

    Nothing was stolen from Mrs. Schilling's home and it appeared unlikely that the killer broke in. Her attacker left behind jewelry and other valuables that were in plain view.

    Finally, the assailant was merciless. He attacked Mrs. Schilling, a small, slim woman of 73, with savage ferocity. Six of her ribs were broken, but the fatal wounds were to her neck. The killer fractured her larynx, her left thyroid cartilage and her hyoid, the horseshoe-shaped bone at the base of the mouth.

    Mrs. Schilling's death remains a murder mystery, as the investigation was dormant for nearly 20 years. But now the case has been reopened because of the persistence of Eileen Hudson-Hruby, her niece.

    I wonder if there's any evidence she had a local beau. If she allowed her husband to see other men, there's a good chance she had a boyfriend.

    It seems like she had an open marriage. But who can say for sure; since the victim is dead.
    a beau seems like as good thought to pursue. but how??
