Wilma knew it was time to end thinks with Tishko, and he did not take it well at all, according to those close to her.
Despite that, she made a few trips to his apartment in order to get the things she had left there.
On November 14th, 2019, Wilma made another trip over to Tishko’s, but that was the last day she would ever be seen alive.
Wilma vanished after going to his place, and in the days that followed her disappearance, hundreds of people came together to search for her in what became the largest search to ever take place in the country.
Wilma’s mom knew she was last at Tishko’s, so she stopped by several times, ringing the doorbell. He repeatedly told her that he got into a fight with Wilma that day and she ran off.
He insisted that was the last time he had seen her, while neighbors mentioned to authorities they were pretty positive they heard screaming coming from inside his apartment on the day Wilma disappeared.

On November 28th, police searched Tishko’s apartment and made a horrific discovery in one of his closets.
Wilma’s severed head had been wrapped up in tape and tin foil, then placed inside of a suitcase, and set in one of Tishko’s closets.
Wilma’s bag and coat were hanging up in another of Tishko’s closets, so when he insisted he had nothing to do with her death, authorities didn’t buy it.
A knife with Wilma and his DNA on it was also found, and Tishko’s fingerprints were also found on the tape her head had been wrapped in.

Tishko told authorities, “You forget that this is a girl that I have loved and that I have lived my life perfectly. If I had murdered my girl, I would not have saved her head.”
The rest of Wilma’s body has not been recovered.
“The suspect has retained a body part for an unknown reason and got rid of the rest of the body,” the chief of police stated.
Last week, Tishko was officially charged with Wilma’s murder.
Tishko says he is innocent, and he is currently behind bars awaiting his trial, which starts on May 26th.
