La Porte Homicide Autopsy Results Released

Share this post

La Porte County Coroner John Sullivan says it was one of the “most disturbing scenes” he has ever seen in many years as coroner as he reported today on autopsy results regarding the death of 48-year-old Kathy Jemiolo, whose body was found inside her home on “E” Street in La Porte early Tuesday.  Sullivan said the cause of death was multiple blunt force and sharp force trauma-type injuries.  Sullivan said the blunt force injuries to the head were from a baseball bat and sharp force injuries were inflicted by a knife. The autopsy was conducted by a forensic scientist at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka.   La Porte Police announced the woman's husband, 60-year-old Joseph Jemiolo was taken into custody early Tuesday on a preliminary charge of murder. Authorities say Jemiolo served prison time on a manslaughter-related conviction several years ago in connection with the shooting death of his then-wife Nancy Jemiolo in 1978 on the southeast side of La Porte.
