A lady who once offered a $25,000 reward for information about her partner’s murder is the person who killed him, researchers said Monday — 13 years after the Wisconsin pharmacist’s passing.
Cindy Schulz-Juedes, 65, of Chippewa Falls in Wisconsin, had reported discovering her husband Kenneth Juedes dead on Aug. 30, 2006, in Unity, and then posted the reward for information leading to arrest in the case a year later.
Schulz-Juedes was long thought a person of interest in the matter, reported Monday.
In 2011, she said she didn’t remember who shot her husband in their residence because she was relaxing in a camper on the property due to sinus disease, the station reported.
Juedes was 58 when he was murdered.
Prosecutors said the two blasts that murdered him came from a shotgun, the Wausau Daily Herald reported Monday.
Both shots were pointed at his chest.
His siblings and prosecutors have said they believe a $1 million life insurance policy could have been the reason behind the murder, the paper reported.
In a 2013 conference, Schulz-Juedes disproved benefitting financially from her husband’s death, according to the paper.
“I don’t feel I am a person of interest in my husband’s death,” she said then. “Most of the money went to the kids. Moneywise, my husband and I together would have earned more in two years than I ever would have gotten from his death, and I still would have had my husband.”
On the tenth ceremony of the killing in 2016, she told the paper she wasn’t engaged in commenting extra on the case.
