  1. I just saw the story on investigation discovery. I was blown away at how beautiful Susan was. I feel for the family for such an intense loss and I hope the beast woloson never sees life on the outside of jail again. what a loss.

    • I am so disgusted by the sentence imposed on this predator. I lived very near the crime site at this time and was terrified that this could happen and they had no clue who did it.. I am lucky–you were not. 40 years?–how is that justified? He should have been given life at the very least–just disgusting that a human life is worth only that.
      RIP Susan–I have had you in my thoughts over these many years. I am very happy that they finally caught him –your monster killer should have been given much more than 40 years. This is the kind of killer that people want the death penalty for–and I am a tree hugging liberal.

  2. This is the kind of killer that people want the death penalty for–and I am forever amazed that Low-Life Predators get Only 40 years! I am neither for or against the “Death Penalty” but when you take a life for “KICKS” you give up the Right to YOURS!!!
    Since I can’t say anything to Susan I will say to all those Hurt by her death and Years of No Justice : At the moment Susan Died GOD took Her to Love, Protect and Keep Forever!!!!

  3. I actually went to H.S. in MI with this piece of crap. A friend of a friend. Had one or two one on one interactions and just always had a vibe that he was scum.

    At my friend’s H.S. graduation party, his parents gave him a nice Dodge Monaco. A couple years old, beautiful car. Woloson was there and he disappeared. A few hours later, my buddy John is asking where his car is? Yep, Woloson stole it and took it to CA.

    I also grew up with a beautiful girl who ran into Woloson after we all graduated. She was at a shopping mall and Woloson flattened her tire. After she came out of the mall, he shows up and acts like a good Samaritan. She gets in his car and he tries to rape her. Thankfully, she got away. It was a few years later that he ran into Ms. Schumake.

    It was a few years ago when I saw this on Cold Case files. I’m watching the show with my daughter and all of a sudden I see his face, and go “Holy Crap! I know this P.O.S!” I am so glad he got caught, only wish he would have been execute.

    I tried to write to him in the Illinois DOJ system, but they said I wasn’t allowed. Wanted him to know that I thought he was a piece of crap and glad his life is over. RIP Ms. Schumake and God bless her family

    • Seriously, you knew him from the college? Thanks for sharing. With the murder being the only exception, this man it seems was unheard of. Or nonexisting. Seeing about the case on Forensic Files – Smoking Out a Killer, it seemed the motive was just rape and he was just clearly a predator who preyed on that young lady. But also if the saying about the note he wrote before relocating is true, his uncertainty about his psychology makes it seem he was psychologically (and obviously physically in this case) unstable and could hurt or kill anybody and later have no idea ‘why’ in his words. And facing prison he would serve if convicted and he therefore decided to relocate in attempt to avoid justice. But of course he can be tracked to any address of his by his social security number. The only places he could have a roof over his head etc without ever being extradited and convicted is Russia, Taiwan, North Korea and Cuba. Unless the American-Cuban Treaty allows any American fugitives who had fled to Cuba to be extradited and face American Justice. If so, then look out Victor Manuel Gerena and ASSata Shakur!

  4. i just watched this on forensic files today. it was a shock. my families’ last name is Shumake!! Susan looks a lot like some of my cousins. our grandfather was from SE Missouri. wow
