. I did her on Week 12 but she is the youngest in her family so I decided to do her again. There was an articles on her death in Chicago, Illinois in April 6, 1963. Her husband killed her with a hammer to the skull and then cut her to pieces and strewn her body all over Chicago. Parts of her body were found in April and May of 1963. When she had disappeared she was working as a nurse's aide in a Chicago hospital. Her husband was an immigrant from Baghdad, Irag. He was questioned by the Illinois authorities but was released after lie detector tests proved inconclusive.
She met her husband while she was a student at University High School and he was a student at East Tennessee State University in 1959.When he killed her they had a 3 year daughter named Venus Lynn. She was sent to Baghdad to live with his parents. There was search for her that was started because of her father writing a letter to President John F. Kennedy. Her husband told the police that had last seen her on April 6, 1963 as he left Chicago to fly to New York City with the couple's three-year old daughter. He also told the police that he had not reported her missing because she had left home on two previous occasions and also they had quarreled and he thought she had left him. He said that he had written to her parents that she had left him and that he suspected that she was running around with a wealthier man than himself. That was written in July, four months after she disappeared. He also wrote in the letter "Mama, please if you ever hear from Jeanette let her know that he still loves her and if she promised that she will not leave him again. That he was ready to accept her back as an honest wife and mother to us." The letter was written to President Kennedy to appeal for help in finding his missing daughter. The letter found it way to Chicago Immigration Official who initiated the search for her through Chicago police.
The identification of the dismemberment parts of the body of her was climaxed six months of investigation by Illinois police officials. They had checked all missing persons from a wide area who might have fit the description they had drawn from the body parts they found. They had not known she was missing apparently until someone in July according to officials.
The last letter she wrote to her parents was dated March 10. In the letter she had said she had been sick most of the winter and had lost weight to 85 pounds. Her mother said her daughter had told her in a telephone call just before her disappearance that she had though she was pregnant again. She had a daughter by a previous marriage but the daughter is with the father.
