Yesterday, I get a report that someone who said she was Buddy Schumacher’s younger sister entered a bookstore in central Wisconsin last weekend looking for a copy of “Murder in Wauwatosa.” It has been reported to me that the lady said the book was all about her family and was “talking about it all like it happened yesterday.” She said she was born after Buddy died.
I know there are several Schumachers in the Wausau area, and there are relatives of his around the state of Wisconsin. But Buddy only had one sister … an older sister named Jeanette who is no longer alive. I have no idea who this lady might be (she very well could be related to the family), but she is definitely not Buddy’s sister.
I even double checked with members of the family, just to make sure.
