Vikki Lynn Vukelich
Missing since February 23, 1991, from Glenwood, Cook County, Illinois.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Vukelich was last seen on February 23, 1991 in her home in Glenwood, Illinois.
A witness saw figures in a car at the Vukelich house on the night of her disappearance and heard a woman's voice screaming, 'Help me, please help me.' The car took off, and Vukelich was reported missing the next day.
Vukelich and her husband were going through a rocky marriage, with Vukelich winning an order of protection against him in 1988 after she told police he tried to strangle her and threatened to kill her. She filed for divorce, then attempted to reconcile with her husband, but he allegedly continued to beat her through late 1989.
Then her husband began accusing Vukelich of attacking him. He accused her of throwing a cup of hot coffee at him in August 1990. And she was arrested in November 1990 when her husband called the police complaining that she hit and bit him. A police officer accused Vukelich of resisting arrest. An arrest warrant was issued for her after she disappeared.
A new garage floor was built, new carpeting installed and the house sold shortly after Vukelich disappeared.
