the committee to free chester weger was at mr wegers perole hearing last month and was saprised to hear the board talk about 6 murders when mr weger was sent to prison for only 1 murder 47 years ago. the board had 6 murders on there mind that day- and the press got the message and they reported about 3 murders in the papers.the board said mr weger had almost a perfect conduct record the last 47 years even they seem to be confused about that.the board said mr weger had always maintaind his innosence, and I think the board beleaves him.this is a complex case said carlos dias, there is new evadence here if the board care,s to look at it. some members on the board said that chester might be wrongly convicted and that the family should get an attny and try to clear his name.we think that we should look at this case 12 months from now this case is very much alive the board said.the new committee to free chester weger has 12 board memers on it.if you know anything about the starved rock murders you may contact the committee on line.we have a witness to the murders he has come forword and the murders happend on tuesday afternoon.

the starved rock murders cover up began the day prosocuters said their was only one killer when MRS OETTING HAS 18 STRANS OF HER HILLERS HAIR IN HER HAND [ NOT CHESTERS ] AND MRS LINDQUIST HAS 14 STRAINS OF BLACK WOMANS HAIR IN HER HAND [ NOT CHESTERS ] AND MRS MURPHY HAS HAIR IN HER HAND OF A 25 YEAR OLD MAN [ NOT CHESTERS ] and the finger prints from the womans clothing did not match MR WEGERS and they sold us a story about one young married man being the killer and we bought it. poeple are running around in fear that MR WEGER might get out some day. chester is the kindest purson you will ever meet. the woman were murdered on tuesday at the olg gorman house it was snowing it was 2;15pm in the afternoon not monday afternoon. again the women ate breakfest tuesday the day after the murders, BIG PROBLEM how could they eat breakfest the day after the died. you figure it out my friends? were is all the stollen police reports at whose got them. so run ariund and scream at the top of your loungs poeple about weger being guilty, but you know wtat their is a lot of evadence in this case and none of it points to him. they dident even get the day the women were murdered right.

the 3 women were murdered by a knife, crime-scene pitures show knif cuts to their faces. mrs murphy may have been hit in the head with a hatchet, there is a very deep cut to her skull. mrs oetting has a cut to her shoulder that also is very deep,it could have come from a machedy?. its time to find out who the foot prints are that go from the murder site to the inian house [ sam sine ] we know that their were foot-prints that went from the canyon to george spiro house, bloody frints at that? were we realy trying to find the killers? come on. and why did stanley tucker move to geogia after the murders to live the rest of his life. strang? the cops even escorted him to the county-line telling him not to return ever again or he would be tryied for the starved rock murders. tucker moved to geogia and spiros kills himself- whats up with that.

The committee to free chester weger beleaves the truth in the starved rock murders has never been told yet? we must find the knife petre says and then we will be moveing in the right direction. find the knif that the women were cut up with. also the clothing was cut with a knif? you can not cut the clothing with a log. Diane oetting in my openion can contenu to not want the truth in the starved rock murders to come out. but to me that just means she is just like everybody else that has barried their head in the sand so they dont have to see the truth. and the truth is the women did not die on monday as they want us to beleave? but tuesday. the prroll board knows weger is innocent, they as much as admitted that at the last hearing. they told the family to get an atterny and get this case back in court because cheste weger might be innocent. 48 years later they say hay maybe he is innocent. HELLO? END OF STORY.

questions linger, but still no one cares for justice. why no justice in the starved rock murders. 2 ladys killers were never found? never? the one they say they found didn,t do it we all know that now. the 3rd lady she is mrs lillian oetting she gave her life fighting her attacker, she has his hair in her hand so we would know who her killer was. she has his finger prints on her clowthing, she has his skin under her finger nails. and all we can to is say it can not be looked at. because we already have somebody locked up for her murder.odd aint it. strang to say the least.if she were my mom I would be calling for DNA on everything?. i WANT TO KNOW WHOSE hair she has so that he doesent get away FREE... and all the world would truely know who this person truely is. if she were my mom I would want real ansures to the killers idenity- DNA gives you that? finger frints give you that? skin gives you that?. we all know rich people get away with murder... we all know?.

when are we going to look at sam sine,s involvment in the starved rock murders, WHEN? dont you think its time to know what he did. we know about george spiros and stanley tucker, but what about sam..... and do not forget this one point their is one girl involved with the starved rock murders. she also had black hair and was 18 to 20 years of age. mrs lindguist had 14 strains of the girls black hair in her hand. does it not make you wonder sometimes how in the world did we ever get down to one person involved in the starved rock murders, plus lets not forget about the dog hairs that was found on the womens clothing.strange how all we can say is one person did these muders. this is unbeleavable? and yet we never found the knif? we never found the knif? the knif must be found because it has at least one killers DNA ON IT. oh thats right we dont want to DNA the evadence in this case? strange, this is a strang case of a log cutting the women under pants off with a log?

why no freedom for chester weger? should not the justice system be just. why was chester given perole hearings after 12 years in prison? why? because he was given a 20 year sentence which means he gets perole hearings in 12 years and out in 20 years. chester weger has no reason to be going to a perole board for anything his time was up 28 years ago. the perole board is playing games with this man. chester is locked up elegally. chester has no history of any other conviction on his record none. he never rapt anybody you can look it up. go to the court house and see for your self, no record of any convictions on anything. he has a perfect record. under what law are they keeping chester weger lock-up. it looks like the law breakers here is the perole board.chester keeps going to court to gain his freedom [ perole boart court?]but the problem is the perole board is the judge and the judge has him loched up elegally.chester has no busness having a hearing on his freedom, he went to court and was given one 20 year sentence[ life ] at the time if you didn,t have any other fellony convictios.he never did. so whats the game all about, let him out....

John Zielenski came forword to Bob Petre and told me and another member of the committi to free chester weger that He beleaved chester was innocent of the starved rock murders, he did not beleave he killed those women because he heard them being murdered on tuesday afternoon at 2;15pm west of ST Luise canyon, it had just started snowing tuesday afternoon and it was tuesday at 2;15pm I remember because I was running a little late for work when I was driveing west of the ST Louis canyon by the old Gorman house there? and I hurd the alfull scream that I will never forget He said,I can remember it like it was yesterday, you dont forget that ever.I wanted to go into the woods to see who was hurting someone like that, but I did not have my gun and I was running late for work so I went on. but I NEVER GORGOT IT HE SAID. it was like the sound of an animal suffering in pain, like a pig screaming? i WILL NEVER FORGET THAT DAY. ASK WHY HE DID NOT TELL SOMEONE AND HE SAID, I didn,t even tell my wife. you didn,t know who you could trust, if I would have come forword and told someone that I beleaved I heard the women being murderd on tuesday afternoon I beleave I would have been like chester lock up the rest of my life. I just could not take that risk. Im older know and I wanted to tell somebody about what I know, then the local paper had something in it about the committi to free chester weger in it, so I contacted them and told them what I know.they then had me tell the local lasalle news paper with the news.

why do not the familys in the starved rock murders not want to see who killed their love ones. Mrs Murphy and Mrs Lindquist killers were never found. everybody knows by know that there was hair samples of 3 poeple and one dog taken off the bodys that was not the hair of the victoms. if it was my mom or my grandma I would want to know who are these poeple.D N A is the solution.

MR WEGER has a public hearing in springfild Dec - 17 at 9am. new evadence will be looked over, every year there is new evadence to give to the perole board, but sence the board was under orders not to let him out the committee to free him decided to send at least one new slice of info every year. last year we proved that there were no bodys in the canyon the day after the murders. this years evadence will be out soon. my personal openion is last year he had as much chance of getting out as MR HEARINS did. we see poeple get out of prison all the time for murders. they usually do 10 - 15 years and go. BUT how you can tell that they are innocent is after years of imprisonment they still clam innocents and they surved 2 to 3 times or moer than the usual 10 - 15 something seems to be a miss -- chester has surved just a few months shy of 50 years NOW. WOW WHY.....HE IS INNOCENT.

what really needs to happen in this case is to find the knife which was used to kill these three lady,s. then we need to ask who owned the knife. its all about the real story in the starved rock murders. what kind of knife was it... how big was it... pretty big... one unarmed man did not kill these lady,s. Harold Wrona said he did it... Stanley Tucker [ ace ] said he did it too... stanly said Georg Spiros did it also... what we really know is that MR Weger is innocent . let chester go.

Your ignorance is appalling. Who's to say good 'ol Chester Cheeto didn't plant false evidence in order to not incriminate himself. That worked out real well for him.

H D R you can tell us [ the committee ] by letting us and everyone on the web sight know at the same time WHAT YOU KNOW because we want the public to know everything that is discovered as time go,s by. I mean if John Zylinski can come foreword and tell everybody he heard the women west of the canyon being murdered. that,s pretty heavy. if Dedra Fox can come foreword and say she seen Wayn Hess CRY OVER CHESTER,S innocents that,s pretty heavy. and know if Bill Danley can tell the word in his book that he got a tip from deputy sheriff at 5am said Weger was being taken from the court house and rushed to starved rock were 12 police cars were and police men thats heavy stuff.because we never knew Weger spent the night at the court house.

why is the murder of MRS Frances Munphy not solved, nobody was arrested and tried for her murder 50 years ago. also why is the murder of MRS robert Linquist not solved. their killers are still out there somewhere. what we do know is that nobody is going to solve those crimes, why, because it was over 50 years ago know. that is a long time ago. but I must say it would be alsome to solve those crime today. their murders to this very day are still a mystery. and then there is mrs oetting it is so wrong what happened to her. so wrong. I hope and pray that someday all three cases will be solved.
