Will of Woman Murdered During Vacation in Bali Filed in Cook County

WillTwo weeks ago, the body of Sheila von Wiese-Mack from Chicago was found in Bali, and her daughter and daughter’s boyfriend may be charged with her murder. Last week, a will of Wiese-Mack, signed Aug. 1, 2006, was filed in a Cook County court. However, it is still unclear who will inherit from Wiese-Mack’s estate, as the will leaves her property to a trust without naming the beneficiary in the will.
