The Unresolved Murder of Susan Poupart [Unresolved Murder]

Susan “Suzy” Poupart was a Native American mother of two, who lived in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. Described as beautiful and strong-willed, Susan wasn’t afraid to speak her mind or go out and have a good time.
The Crime
Susan attended a party on Makwa Trail, despite her mother begging her not to go out as she had a bad feeling. She left the party on May 20th, 1990 at 04:00 AM. Several witnesses saw her leave in a car with two men, one person claimed the men forced her into the car. This was the last time anyone would see Susan who was 29-years old at the time. After failing to return home, her mother and sister reported her missing.
Six months later on November 22nd, 1990, two hunters were walking in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. They came across a purse that contained Susan’s tribal ID as well as a jacket underneath a log. When they pulled the jacket out, they found a human jaw. Other partial remains were subsequently found and were all identified as Susan’s. She had been sexually assaulted, killed and left naked. Duct tape and plastic found in the area suggests the perpetrator(s) tried to conceal the corpse. Susan’s death was officially ruled as a homicide, but no exact cause has been given, this is likely due to the lack of remains.
Joe Cobb and Robert Elm were the two men last seen with Susan. They told investigators they planned on taking Susan home but got into an argument, so they dropped her off at the Lac du Flambeau Elementary School (which is now a casino). A man named Francis “Fritz” Schuman became a third suspect in the case after he was mentioned in multiple interviews. All three men were local to the area.
An open investigation was held in the hopes of the public coming forward with information. Al Moustakis, a Vilas Country district attorney at the time, attempted to question the men. Francis Schuman opted to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights, while Robert Elm refused to testify without an attorney present and Joe Cobb didn’t attend.
Moustakis asked Schuman about a rumour that he allegedly told another inmate while in Vilas County Jail that he and others took her to the woods to have sex and then beat her to death. He also asked Schuman if he returned to the party with blood on his clothes. Schuman exercised his constitutional right not to incriminate himself on both questions.
In 2014, evidence was tested for DNA after advances with technology, but it didn’t unearth any new clues. A billboard was created along Highway 47 with details of the case. Joe Fath, the Vilas County Sheriff at the time, hoped this would help receive tips. “It keeps it in the community’s eyes, so they remember that somebody out there is responsible for Suzy’s death”, he said. “It hasn't been as successful as I would have hoped. We do have people come forward with little tidbits, even as much as last year, [with] things that they should have come forward with sooner, but they didn't. That's the kind of information that will probably eventually solve this case when somebody decides to come forward with something that's relevant, that they know first-hand."
Suspicions have circulated through the local area about those who may be responsible for the murder, but most individuals have withheld their knowledge out of fear. Susan’s cousin, Bill, is positive he knows who did it. “If you say anything about anything, they’re gonna affect you”, he said. “They’re gonna take away your job, they’re gonna take away your house, they’re gonna take away your kids or they’re gonna take away your health.”
Susan’s children, Alexandria and Jared, are now adults who are desperate for answers. They both still live in the area. Based on rumours and information from locals, Jared has pieced together what seems to be Susan’s last moments. After she was taken away from the party, she was the victim of an attempted sexual assault and was beaten when she resisted. She was then gang-raped and shot and killed with the pump part of a tire jack.
No one has been charged with a crime related to her disappearance or death.

Poker Players Alliance fights for legal poker in Wisconsin

Several US states have legalized online gambling in general and poker in particular, or are working towards passing similar laws. Delaware, New Jersey and Nevada are at the forefront of this offensive, but there are other states willing to follow their example. More recently, the Poker Players Alliance took the initiative in Wisconsin, a state that so far opposed the idea of legalizing the popular game. A trend has emerged but until the critical mass is created, there are little chances for poker player to be allowed to play their game over the internet. What could happen in Wisconsin is for the sovereign Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians to set up an online gaming ring. The first step is to make sure that poker is not illegal in the state, something easier said than done, since the laws are not exactly clear. Poker professionals and amateurs alike have already jumped on the bandwagon and are supporting the initiative of PPA. Their intention is to hire a lawyer to represent them in court and pursue a declaratory judgment regarding the legality of live poker. For those who would hope that the Poker Players Alliance would focus directly on the online version of the game, these baby steps might seem underwhelming. PPA representatives on the other hand, urge players to stay calm and be patient, as everything starts with a single step and this is the best plan to follow. The laws are not clearly stating whether poker is gaming or not and everything seems to be left to interpretation, which is not in the best interest of players. The Poker Players Alliance has hired a former Assistant Attorney General and will work closely with its PPA legal team in Washington, D.C. Nothing will change overnight and as always, there is a good chance for this effort to fall flat, but those committed to restoring poker are not willing to give up. Players themselves are asked to contribute to the cause and so far there were many willing to lend a helping hand. At the time of writing, less than $4000 were raised but with more charity tournaments scheduled for the upcoming month, more funds should be collected. Legalizing poker in Wisconsin would be a big victory for the entire poker community in the US
