Here’s One Way to No Longer Be a Suspect … Thomas Tomich leaped to his death from an 11-story building


Thomas Tomich was considered the prime suspect in his ex-wife, Lois Tomich’s death. Her Chalk_outlineskeletal remains were found in a 55 gallon drum in May 2006, 23 years after she was reported missing. Lois Tomich was identified through DNA. Thomas Tomich then leaped from the 11 story building where he worked as a janitor. Needless to say, there is no need to prosecute Mr. Tomich anymore as gravity provided swift justice.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Thomas Tomich jumped from the roof of the building where he worked as a janitor in Omaha, Neb., said Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker. Tomich had been scheduled to be questioned again on Thursday, he said.

Danker said Tomich was the primary suspect in the death of his ex-wife, Lois Tomich, whose remains were found in May, 23 years after she was reported missing.

Danker said investigators had questioned several people who said Tomich had implicated himself in the woman’s death over the years and had threatened to kill those he told.

Man’s suicide seen as confession

Confession? Seems that the suicide jump may have acted as judge, jury and executioner as well.

Tomich had scheduled a 4 p.m. appointment Thursday to meet with investigators, but was dead by 9 a.m. It is initially believed that he didn’t leave a suicide note, but an envelope in his truck contained contact numbers and life insurance information.

“You could hardly write a movie script stranger than this case has been,” Wilber said.
Wilber said the case is now considered closed, and has released details in a possible motive to the crime. After the divorce, Lois Tomich had been dating Tomich’s brother, Mark Dawson, who lived in Texas. (Des Moins Register)

      And a plan for OJ as well! When you’re guilty and you know it, leave us a note, make your peace and get away from the decent people of this earth.

      The suicide was only the nail in the coffin…he was a suspect initially but there wasn’t sufficient evidence to detain. 23 years later he’s made the mistake of admitting to several his crime of passion. So, when I read, “Confession? Seems that the suicide jump may have acted as judge, jury and executioner as well.” all I can tell you is there was much more to the confession than just the suicide.

      Tomich killed more than one. He is being investigated for the murder of at least two and perhaps four more murders in what police are privately calling “serial in nature.”

      I would question two other people who Tomich confessed to assisting him. This was confessed around 94 when he owned and operated The Office, a bar on E Broadway.
