George W. Jayne, wealthy
horseman who escaped a 1963
bomb plot in which a young
woman died, was shot to death
Wednesday night in his luxurious
colonial style residence.
Police said the killer fired a
single shot through a basement
window as Jayne, 47, and
members of his family sat
around a table to their game
room playing cards. Jayne, who
was shuffling cards then struck
near the heart, toppled from his
chair and died within 15
The killing occurred in a subdivision
known as Inverness, an
area of wealthy home owners,
which is patrolled by Palatine
police. The Palatine Jayne home
is situated in the center of a
five-acre estate.
Jayne and his elder brother,
Silas, 61, also a well-to-do horse
trainer, were principals in &
bitter family feud which has
"brought them into the .headlines
frequently in the last 10
years. .
Robert R. Centner, Palatine
police chief, said he planned to
question Silas and the dead
man's other 12 brothers and sisters about the killing.
Centner said Jayne was seated
at the card table with his wife,
Marian; his daughter, Mrs.
Linda Wright; and Mrs.
Wright's husband.
George and Silas Jayne were
the principals in a spectacular
trial in 1986 when Silas was accused of the 195 bombing. The
brothers were owners of rival
horse stables.
The bombing incident occurred
June 14, 1965 at George
Jayne's stable. A bomb wired to
the ignition of Jayne's car exploded,
killing Miss Cherie
Rude, a 22-year-old employ. The
bomb went off as Miss Rude attempted
to start the car.
George Jayne told authorities
the bomb was intended for him
and declared Silas was
responsible. Silas was indicted
in the bombing but was acquitted.
In 1969, Silas shot and killed
an armed intruder at his home
in Kane County during a gun
fight. Police said a note found on
the dead man contained George
Jayne's name, address and
telephone number.
Silas Jayne was absolved of
the death, which was adjudged
justifiable homicide.
