I was at the corner of James and Oneida today and I was began to think about Helena as she was killed in the big yellow house that burned down. Did the person who did it get caught? How much time did they get???

I was just thinking about that a month ago, how weird is that? I thought her name was Shirley, however, not Helena? I can't find anything online about it...

Her name was Helena. I thought she was murdered by her boyfriend, who was caught. Was this around 1994 or 1995? I knew her; she was a very nice person.

good for the family to know we have not forgotten her. Nor have we forgotten Sandra Galligano(sp?).

Helen was killed June 19th 1994 by her father in law...he confessed a couple days later and is serving 25 to life for 2nd degree murder...He has now served 19 of those years. I think of her almost daily since she was and is my best friend and miss her very much. Her dad has been fighting cancer for last few years and may soon join the daughter he misses very much. I will let the family know she is still thought and cared for....thank you all.

Her husbands name was William Mcclusky, but her father in law was his step father, and the day I forgave him...I forgot his name and now want to remember, but can't find it any where.

I went and did a little research...the name of the man found guilty of Helen's murder is Duane Houghmaster and his parole hearing is suppose to be in February 2014 and could be out by June 2014. I can only pray that he has asked forgiveness from God for taking the life of someone that has meant so much to so many...I miss Helena every day.

Sick is the key work....my heart only aches because no one seems to know why he killed her...lust, greed, anger, no on knows...I have forgiven him for his crime and one day I will see her again, but whether he gets out this year will be up to a parole board. I miss her much, but she has watched over us all these years for that I am so very greatful

She was using him for his money , he spent alot of his award moneyfrom ss on her , they were even condoms down in the basement. It was not her father in law ,he was not married when this happen. They got married in the county jail after it happen. It does'nt really matter she gone.

I knew Helena for years. I seriously doubt she was using somebody for money.

Duane was her mother-in-laws boyfriend. Duane followed Helena home from her job at the library and sexually assaulted her before he murdered her. She was separated from her husband, William McClusky at the time of this happening! Word on the street is that William has suffered for the last twenty years since her death; he loved her! The mother-in-law lives in Fort Myers, Florida; she should rot in hell for all she has done throughout the years. Duane's motive was Helena's life insurance policy that was worth $100,000.00. That was a ton of money back in the day! How Duane was going to orchestrate being the beneficiary of her life insurance policy is a question only he can answer. Maybe the drunk mother-in-law can tell you. Maybe she had something to do with all of this; she abused her children when they were growing up. She lived in the bars with her husband and those children had to fend for themselves. She gave them alcohol instead of milk; she was a neglectful woman. If Duane Houghmaster gets out of jail for this crime; it will be an atrocity! Someone needs to go to these parole hearings so that he never, ever gets out - EVER!!
