Default Judith Hines Case

What a bizarre case. I didn't believe she was living in Omaha, but wonder why someone would call, saying she was. They should have questioned the Hungarian abortion performer.

They've been showing some great older segments lately. Some of them were even new to me. It's amazing to catch cases occasionally that I haven't seen before, after tivoing it twice a day.

I don't know why, but everytime I watch this segment I go around for the next week saying over and over (in a weird accent), "Judy Hines is alive... and she lives in Omaha... Judy Hines is alive... and she lives in Omaha..."

Many many many years back some buddies of mine were hanging out at this guys house and one of us got the bright idea to do a couple of "prank calls" or whatever. So when the time came for me to say something on the phone I just said the first thing that came to mind which was of course...

"Judy Hymes is alive... and she lives in Omaha" - Everybody looked at me weird but hell Todd thought you'd like to know you ain't alone man. That phrase is infectious

Later.

I've taught that phrase to my 4 year old daughter. How many toddlers do you know that know who Judy Himes is? Its nice to be raising another generation of UM fans.

I think thats the one. She was pretty and wore a "flip" but no glasses. There were calls 25 years after her disappearance claiming she was alive and in Omaha (thus the classic phrase). After the original segment aired someone sent an anonymous letter saying she had died after an allergic reaction to something given to her during an illegal abortion. I believe they also said her body was thrown in the water. Police think the letter is credible.

Default There is actually

a news article from a July, 1989 edition of the Miami Herald on Hymes which apparently goes into some detail regarding her case. If someone could dig it up they would probably get some more information on the case.

Later.

The letter is probably from either the Hungarian doctor who was running the clinic and vanished, or someone helping him with that specific abortion.

The most likely scenerio in this case is that she died while having the abortion. (The letter also says she had a fatal reaction to some medicine that she was allergic to or something.) But how does that explain the blood found in her rental car? Maybe when her body was disposed of in the bay (if the letter is correct) that might have been when it happened.

Her rental car was then driven 100+ miles away by a man that I assume might have worked at the clinic. He was seen exiting her car but was never identified. I wonder why they chose that specific location - surely they had to know that the car would be found (it was parked on the lawn in a residential neighborhood for goodness sake).

By far, those famous mysterious phone calls are the most baffling in this case - (Judy Himes is alive, and she lives in Omaha. ) If they were indeed a prank, why would somebody wait a full 25 years after Judith vanished to make them? Could they possibly have come accross an old newspaper article that discussed the case and then they decided to try and screw with the police? If they were a prank, they most likely were not calling from Omaha but from the Florida area where Himes lived.

Strange case. I would also like very much to read some old articles on this mystery if they could ever be found.

I don't suppose there are any developments in this case?

I don't think the letter is legitimate. I think it is a deterent. I also believe Judith is alive and living in Omaha, but when they saw the story on UM, they sent the letter to quash any evidence of her being found. She probably went into hiding just in case people found out she had had the abortion.

As mentioned in the story, due to the fact that the statute of limitations has expired on this case, there would be no criminal charges laid.

Well if the statute of limitations had expired and whoever wrote the letter knew this, I don't think they'd intend for it to be a deterrent........

I think what happened was just a sad case of bad luck. Complications developed from the abortion which she was either unable to anticipate or unexperienced in dealing with. She died either in that squalid shack, or somewhere close by and the doctor panicked. He had someone dispose of her body in Biscayne Bay and then get rid of her car (the blood in the backseat could suggest that's where her body was sitting while in transit....)

Then at the first chance he got (after making bail), he bolted. Now why would he go and do that if Judith had survived the procedure?? Passing himself off as a doctor is bad enough.......but certainly not as bad as passing himself off as a doctor and causing the death of an innocent woman........

As far as I know, no attempt was made by the Omaha Police Department to investigate the phone calls or do any sort of investigation to dispell these rumors. *(Coincidentally, the Omaha Chief of Police at the time--James Skinner, later resigned to become the Police Chief in Coral Gables in 1997)

Now there's a twist I never would have guessed.
