Corey Wieneke Murder
Corey Wieneke’s death shook the community of Chicago, Illinois, to its core. At just 22 years of age, the former bartender was a young man who was often at his grandparents’ restaurant and bar, Wink’s Bar & Grill. His body was discovered in the restaurant’s basement by responding firefighters. The cause of death was blunt stress, likely a beating. According to prosecutors, Corey Wieneke died of blunt stress or blunt force trauma. His girlfriend, Annette Cahill, was able to avoid suspicion by giving the police a credible alibi.
During the Oct. 13 incident, Corey was out with Annette Hazen. She was intoxicated when she left Wink’s near closing time. Annette told police that she and Corey had an argument, but that it stemmed from jealousy. The argument did not last, and she refused to take the rap. In a subsequent interview, Annette pleaded not guilty and testified that she did not see Corey at the bar.
Initially, police ruled out a homicide until the bat was analyzed. While the bat was not found to have DNA evidence, it was ruled a murder weapon. The case was finally solved after more than four hundred witnesses were interviewed. Corey was murdered in a jealous rage, and the murder weapon was found only a mile from the home. Afterward, a reporter discovered a bat on the gravel road, which was later confirmed by a farmer.
Who is Corey Wieneke?
Despite the lack of evidence, the police suspected jealousy when a female family member was involved. Although Annette was an accountant at the bank, she was also dating Corey’s long-term girlfriend, Jody. Jody was working at a bank in Iowa City while Corey was at home. On Oct. 13, she returned home after a night shift and noticed her boyfriend was missing. She also noticed a dog unchained outside the house, as well as a screen door that had been left wide open.
After the investigation, a man named Annette Cahill was accused of killing Corey Wieneke. Cahill had been accused of murder in 1992 after a witness identified the body of Wieneke. She claimed to have eaten the victim’s blood-stained clothing and admitted to being at Cahill’s home on the day of his death, but her testimony did not prove her guilt. After her arrest, the murder case went to trial.
The murder investigation was complicated by a number of factors, including the lack of bodily evidence and an alibi for Annette. The lack of body proof, along with the alibi of another suspect, forced investigators to shut the case down for 25 years. However, a recent tip led to a reopening of the case. An anonymous tip revealed that Becker saw candles left by Annette after the murder and that she had heard her niece apologize for killing Corey.
The police found a bloody aluminum baseball bat near the house of the Wieneke couple. Although the bat contained no fingerprints or other useful DNA evidence, it was determined to be the murder weapon. A farmer who lives nearby said that the bat appeared between 9:00 a.m. and one p.m. The bat was removed from the scene of the crime. Apparently, the killer was a man known to Susan Wieneke.
