Police rule CU reporters case a murder-suicide
BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (10/30/08)--Boynton Beach police say a former credit union trade publications writer murdered her former partner and committed suicide (Palm Beach Post Oct. 29). Carol Anne Burger, 57, committed suicide Friday several hours at her home in Boynton Beach after the body of her former partner, software executive Jessica Kalish, 56, was found in her car more than two miles away (News Now Oct. 28). Police said Burger, upset about the disintegration of the couple's relationship, stabbed Kalish more than 200 times with a Phillips-head screwdriver in their garage, reported the Post. Police said she tried to conceal the killing by cleaning the garage, moving Kalish's car, and planting Kalish's keys and wallet elsewhere. Burger was a former writer for Credit Union Times and Credit Union Journal and wrote for several industry organizations. She had been reporting political news on a blog for The Huffington Post website until the deaths.
