Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 11, 1964, USA
Death: May 8, 2001
Cinnaminson
Burlington County
New Jersey, USA

Murdered by her estranged husband. Kimberly Szumski was married to Thomas Szumski and was an aerobics instructor and waitress. The couple married in 1990 and subsequently had two children, named Olivia and Luke. Their relationship began to crumble, and Kimberly filed for divorce in March, 2001, contending in court papers that her husband, who had served time in prison in the 1980s for an armed robbery, had threatened to kill her. The couple argued in their Cinnaminson, NJ home on May 8, 2001, and Kimberly was never seen alive again. Thomas Szumski was a contractor who had worked on a job in nearby Philadelphia, PA. A few months after Kimberly's disappearance, police detectives received a tip from a man who had worked with Thomas Szumski in the contracting business. The tipster led police to a house at 538 Lombard Street in Philadelphia. A police bloodhound smelled the presence of a corpse behind a newly constructed wall. Investigators found the body of Kimberly Szumski wrapped in canvas and plastic after they ripped their way through cinderblock, cement, and steel rods. Thomas Szumski had strangled his wife to death in their New Jersey home, transported her body to the construction site, and entombed her inside a hollow wall. The police did not have to take Thomas Szumski into custody, because he had died of a heroin overdose on July 4, 2001, two months after Kimberly's disappearance and about a month before her remains were discovered.
