we were known as the "Bogdan Sisters". Born 11 months aparts, Iren(the older one)and I were very close. We shared EVERYTHING.On July 1rst of last year, she just disapeared off the face of this Earth. I thought she had cleaned up her act, got Sober, fell in Luv, Anything--and would come for her other half(ME) when she was ready. On Mother's Day, I get the news from Detective Harris & his partner that they found her body up in a field, in Lake County. I LAST saw Iren in Chicago, on North Ave. & Ashland. I remember her calling me just 2 tell me she loves me :{. She is my only sister, my best friend and my other half. Ihave no family here. Just me, my sister, mommy, & grandma. Her death has not sunk in yet. Mommy doesn;t even want to believe whe've lost her, untill we can get closure(WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO HER????????), IT MIGHT B 2much 4 her2 handle. It's a TRAGEDY ;(. Any information, and any support could really help me deal w/ this cold case left painfully opened. What happened to my Sister, Iren?

Maggie, this is Apu. Thanks for the contact. I am going to give you an e-mail address in a few days, but it is ONLY Andrea i want to contact. I want ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with Lioara, so you have to promise, that ONLY Andrea will be involved. I am worried about her, with good reason.

Have the police closed this case? Do they know what/who was responsible for Iren's tragic death?

You are right, Gemini, WHO and Why,that is the question.There is somebody "out there", a "sad loser" (Iren's words!), who knows the answer. If it was only an accident, I hope he will come out with the truth and be in peace. If it was more than that, a vicious crime, my message is that sooner or later he'll get his share of evil dreams, in this world or the next, he too will "despair and die"..

Hi Andrea,

I don't know if you remember me but my little sister Tracey and I were friends of yours and Iren when we were little (Dana and Tracey Yelen). I saw the report about your sisters death on the news and I was shocked. I am really sorry about her death and I was wondering if there has been any update on what happened? My email address is [email protected] Email me if you would like. Tracey and me have thought a lot about you and your family.

To whom it may concern:
Today is Monday December 1st, 2008. I just learned of Iren's passing this past Saturday!! Both Iren and Andrea were like sisters to me. We may have lost touch but I thought about them and worried about them everyday.... I am distraut. How could this happen to my Iren?? Why are there so many questions left unanswered??? How could something so horrible happen to such a beautiful person who impacted my life in such an unspeakable way?? My heart goes out to Andrea, Apu and the rest of the people in this world that genuinly cared about Iren!!Not the ones who used her, and hurt her and took advantage of her.... Whoever is responsible for this, will burn in hell if I have to see to it myself!!!!!!!!!! I pray that Andrea can make it, change herslef for the better and live up to her potential... She is a smart, beautiful, caring person and she deserves nothing but the best!!!
Iren: You will always be remembered, loved and missed. I am glad you are home safe now!!! God bless you baby cakes and rest in peace my angel... I love you!!! ;-(

Greetings Scorpio, this is Golem:
You wrote from the depth of your heart and it touched me. Your wound is fresh, its cry reaches the sky. We know the feeling. Now, on this side of the Ocean is just sadness. And mounting, seething anger.
This forum is slowly gaining momentum. It is good, that following the long silence,--the silence of that abandoned field--people are coming out and want to know what happened to Iren. And want her to know, that they cared for her.
I might know some of your unanswered questions. Not all of them,--yet.
Be assured, that The One Who Did It will burn. And not only in the "other" Hell.We know that he reads these lines. He thinks, that he is safe. But he is wrong.We have long arms. Iren, eventually will talk. And tell us her tale about the night of July 21, 2006. Tell us about the white car and the trip up North. And about her final voyage to the lonely wood across Waukegan airport.
I would like to contact you, but not on this open forum. Think about it.

You guys are all freaking me out. It appears that someone here knows something, so why don't you just go to the authorities and stop being so weird.

Ah, yes--the authorities...
But of course they know everything we do, and a lot more. Obviously this is not enough. They need fresh leads, more evidence.
So, help them! Come out and talk to them.
Don't let this tragic case die..

Right. Give us some time to work it out. We need to tread carefully. Until then your contact on this pages will be Kerberos. Look for his messages.
Meanwhile we share your grief. Iren received your farewell words and they offer some peace for her soul.
