    The sensless murder of Mary Austgen at the Gary Majestic Star Casino

    Ralph Martinez, 57, faces charges of murder, robbery and criminal confinement.

    Mary was known through the community for her kindness and love. This psycho kidnaps her from her Griffith office and then shoots her at the Gary casino. I for one, am hoping and praying that Martinez gets sentenced to death and it is carried out ASAP.

    What was his motive in the senseless murder of this sweet elderly woman.

    Was it purely robbery? I think it was pure greed. He knew she was rich and wanted what did not belong to him

    Will he / should he get the death penalty?

    Justice for Mary Austgen!

    My heart goes out to Mary's family and friends. I could not believe his comment when he heard the reward information, "that's all I am worth?" Really, because her life was worth more than the little bit of money that you got! In my opinion, he is not worth a dime!

    I remember this tragedy from a few years back. I hope the guy is rotting in prison.
