State police solicit help on old case

FOUNTAIN CITY, Ind.-- Indiana State Police officials are seeking the public's help as they reopen the case of a Wayne County woman found dead nearly 14 years ago.

On Oct. 30, 1995, state police were called to the Willow Grove Cemetery on the southeast edge of Fountain City at about 12:30 p.m.

A Williamsburg resident, Wilma Cheek, 48, had been found dead inside her gray 1989 Pontiac that was parked in the cemetery. An autopsy determined Cheek had been shot to death in her vehicle.

There was an undisclosed amount of money missing from the victim that has remained unaccounted for. The time of her death was estimated to be between 10:30 and 11:15 a.m. that day.

I knew the family very well. Wilma was also my Sunday school teacher. When Wilma was murdered and other things came out such as her husbands long list of affairs including one with his daughter in-law...It forever changed Victory Tabernacle and others who knew the family. Wilma was a good person who loved her church God and her family. I just can't believe that her own husband and kids (excluding Kristal she was very young when this happend) would not help police during the investigation. If that was my Mom I wouldn't rest until the person responsible was put away for ever. It doesn't make them look very good. No doubt Wilma is shouting on the streets of heaven. We Love and miss you Wilma. Justice will be served. I believe that.

That was done right after the murder and when everthing had came out about Mr. Cheek. His name shouldn't be on there.. Wilma doesn't deserve a scum bag like him laying next to her...

Are you saying a family member doesn't like Mr Cheek?
Then there must be a pretty good idea of who killed her then. I don't know the family, but I am very sorry about her death, it's a shame.

Rumor has it the Lawson family did it after he got remarried. Mr. Cheek is not a bad person. If a marriage is good, it's because both people work at it; if it's bad, both are to blame. Just because they had marriage problems doesn't make them bad people.

To Indiana resident: For your information her oldest daughter did help the detectives any way she could and is still in contact with the detectives. I know this for a fact. Consider the situtions with all the rumors and garbage that came out. Could you walk a mile in Wilma's childrens shoes? Please don't say things that you reallt don't know!
