Janet Tyburski Killed her Daughter with Help of Younger Daughter in Ohio

Janet
Janet Tyburski, 45, of Lakewood, Ohio, strangled her 26-year-old daughter Rachele to death in March of 2015. Police said Janet suffocated Rachele at Janet’s Lakewood home. She then dumped Rachele's body in a field off of Victory Lane in North Ridgeville in the early-morning hours of March 15. The remains were found later that day. When her body was found, police ran pictures of the her tattoos in the hopes that someone would identify the body. Janet called the police and said she recognized the tattoos as those of her missing daughter.
Rachele

Hannah Tyburski, Rachele’s sister, was booked into the Lorain County jail on charges of tampering with evidence, obstructing, and abuse of a corpse. She was released on a $7,000 bond. Police say she helped her mother dispose of her sisters body. They used a door to get the body into a car. For the entire first year of the trial police released no motive for the murder.

Tom Fialko, Janet's boyfriend and father of her son, came forward in June of 2015 to say she had tried to blame the murder of her daughter on him. He claimed she had called him the weekend before police found the body and tried to implicate him saying Rachele had went to his house to spend the weekend with him.

Hannah
Janet was once married but her husband died years ago. Strangely enough, his mother, Danusia Tyburski, has come forward in support of Janet. She told her local news station that Janet, her son and their three daughters were happy when he was alive but after his death things turned sour. Rachele developed mental health issues when her father died. Janet struggled to take care of the kids but lost her job. she offered no excuse or otive other than Janet just lost it in the struggle to care for her children and a mentally strained adult daughter. Janet told her mother-in-law that she smothered her daughter with a pillow. No one has yet to offer an explanation for why Hannah helped her mother.


Janet plead guilty last Wednesday to murder, tampering with evidence, and abuse of a corpse. A charge of aggravated murder was dismissed. She was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison with eligibility of parole after 19 years.
