  1. I have searched endlessly, and without results, for photos of ms. quinn and her killer, john wain wilson. any suggestions? thanks!

    • just go on line & type in the address box Rosanne Quinn. There are pictures of her. Haven’t found one for John yet.

  2. I have not been able to find pictures of either one of them. If and when I do, I will post them for sure.

  3. Well I am not sure I totally understand the reasoning but I like the post a lot! Be sure to enable it thogu. it will work better for you…

    Happy new year!

  4. Roseann was an acquaintance; we sat together in grad school. She was a teacher of the deaf.

    I am in the process of publishing a book of poetry and a poem about her will be included.

    I remember there was an article about the murder in New York Magazine.

  5. Do you or anyone reading this blog know the name of the District Attorney or Assistant DA assigned to the Roesann Quinn murder case?

  6. I live in Shelbyville and I know his family. You still looking for a picture? Steve S

    • Of John? Yes, I am. There is one in an article, but it is very blurry.

    • Glad you know the family. I was stationedin germany with Gene and his family I think they had their first kids over there. Just tying to find them out. I was Baumholder Community and he was in a unit of the 2nd Brigade

  7. Knew johns brother in the army, and wondered what happened to him and the rest of the family
