Janet Tyburski Ohio


Janet Tyburski murdered her own daughter, 26 year old Rachele Tyburski, and then dumped her body in a field where she was found in March of 2015. Authorities say she suffocated Rachele in their home in Lakewood on March 13th. 

Her body was located by the landowner who called police. Police issued information on the body to the public in hopes someone could recognize her. Janet actually called the hotline to say she believed the body to be her daughters. 

Rachele's father died in 1999. Her mother was left to raise three children alone. Rachele had bipolar disorder and was often violent and destructive. Rachele's grandmother described the mother/daughter relationship as contentious. 

Janet is being held on a 2 million dollar bond. No other information is available.
