The bodies of 20-year-old Sharon Pope Dejesus and her younger sister, 18-year-old Lillian Pope, were found at a sewer lift station in Lake Station, Indiana. They had both been shot at close range in the head with a shotgun. 47 years later, the case remains cold.

2020.07.02 03:38 TheBonesOfAutumn The bodies of 20-year-old Sharon Pope Dejesus and her younger sister, 18-year-old Lillian Pope, were found at a sewer lift station in Lake Station, Indiana. They had both been shot at close range in the head with a shotgun. 47 years later, the case remains cold.

20-year-old Sharon Pope Dejesus and her younger sister, 18-year-old Lillian Pope, were last seen alive on the evening of December 13th, 1973.
Sharon lived in Gary, Indiana and Lillian lived in nearby Portage, but their places of employment were very near each other, and often times they would wait for one another after work.
On the night of the 13th, Lillian met Sharon after Sharon finished her shift at Calvin's Grill, a drive-in restaurant, located at 4701 E. Dunes Highway in Gary, Indiana.
Coworkers of Sharons reported to police that the two sisters left the restaurant to go to 12-20 Bowl, which was within walking distance of the restaurant.
They were last seen walking down Dunes Highway towards the bowling alley.
The following morning, a highway worker in Lake Station, Indiana doing routine checks on a sewage lift station, discovered the sisters laying side by side near the gravel road that led to the secluded area. The area was wooded, and a common place for people to illegally dump their trash.
Sharon was found lying in the fetal position, while Lillian was found face down on the ground just inches from Sharon. Police believe they were killed elsewhere and later dumped in the location they were found.
Both Sharon and Lillian had been shot at close range with a shotgun in the back of the head. Both of the women were beaten in the head and face, but Sharon had been beaten “beyond recognition.”
The girls were found fully clothed, wearing matching red hoodies, black boots, and stocking caps. They were not sexually assaulted. Sharon’s purse was found next to her body containing cash, so neither robbery nor sexual assault appeared to be a motive.
Perhaps the most disturbing of all, both of the sisters were pregnant. Lillian was due to have her first child in less than a month. Attempts were made to save the baby who was at full term, but to no avail. Sharon was 6 months pregnant with her third child.
Sharons two children lived part time with her estranged husband, Douglas de Jesus, until she was murdered. Police questioned him, but never named him as a suspect. A short time later, he abandoned his two children and moved away. Sadly, in 1998 Sharon’s oldest son was shot in the neck and died. Her older son eventually moved away.
There were a total of 14 siblings in the Pope family, including Sharon and Lillian. From what I understand, their mother and father, Marilynn and Donald, were extremely abusive, and most of them ended up spread across the United States as they were given up for adoption, sent to foster care, or were taken in by other family members.
Most of the siblings were unaware of the existence of their other siblings. In some cases they had a vague recollection of their brothers and sisters, but were either too young to remember their siblings names, or had no way to contact them.
One of those siblings, Martha Hoag, had been sent to live with her Aunt in Florida. One evening, she overheard a conversation her Aunt was having about the murders.
Martha was a teenager at this point, but she didn’t know anything about Sharon and Lillian, let alone that they had been murdered. Martha said when she began to cry, her aunt “laughed in her face,” and told her “you didn’t even know them, why are you crying?”
When another one of the siblings, Larry Pope, turned 18, his caseworker decided it was time to tell him about his sisters Sharon and Lillian. She presented Larry with an envelope containing newspaper clippings from 1973 about the girls murder. Like Martha, this was the first time Larry learned about his sisters.
Later in life, Martha and Larry reconnected with each other. They raised the money to buy Sharon and Lillian a proper gravestone, and made every attempt to bring the case back into the public’s eye. In 2018, the case was featured on Case Files Chicago.
There are no suspects in the Pope sisters murders, but Larry and Martha hold out hope that one day the person responsible for taking the lives of four of their family members that day, will be brought to justice.
Larry told Case Files, ”They were murdered, thrown on the side of the road like trash. Even though we were split up as kids, we weren’t trash. We were just kids. The day I was handed that manila envelope was the day I decided to find justice for them, and I won’t stop until that happens.”
