Carol Anne Burger is Huffington Post murder, as she killed herself last Friday, a day after the body of Jessica Kalish was found. She was stuffed in the backseat of her BMW, after being stabbed 222 times with a Phillips-head screwdriver. This seems to be a crime of passion as the two ladies were former lovers and shared a house.
Kalish and Berger had married in Massachusetts in 2005, but Kalish had met another woman and they had been separated for a year. However, due to financial reasons they remained living together in the house they purchased together.Friends say the situation was bad, Burger was depressed and refused to take anti-depressants. The women shared the house where Burger had her half of the house, and Kalish had hers, and she would spend hours in cyber dates with her new companion.
Jessica Kalish’s wallet and keys were found, and someone called their home to notify Berger, who then called police to report her missing. She claimed Kalish went for a workout and never came home. The ferocity and personal nature of the attack led detectives and crime scene investigators to this theory, which they were later able to prove:
On Wednesday night, Kalish exercised at LA Fitness at 2290 N. Congress Ave. and was home by 9:30 p.m. A confrontation ensued, and she probably was dead by midnight.
After stabbing Kalish, Burger put her in the BMW and drove her to the Congress Avenue site. She walked home, a distance of about 2 1/2 miles.
Burger cleaned up the garage and used the washing machine and bathroom sink, where traces of Kalish’s blood were later detected. She got into her Toyota Celica, drove to Gateway Boulevard and tossed out Kalish’s keys and wallet.
Before having the chance to question her, Berger went to her back yard and killed herself
