Local crime news website Racine Uncovered broke a big story over the weekend when they identified Wilbert Thomas as the suspect in the homicide of Sandra Teichow.
The site reported the news Saturday after learning Thomas was booked into the Racine County Jail on charges of 1st Degree Homicide and other charges. He's due in court today.
Since breaking the news, Beth at Racine Uncovered has continued to dig into Thomas' criminal past. He's been through previous competency hearings, but found to be sane. They then found a Court of Appeals ruling that freed Thomas in 1999 after the District Attorney's office was three days late in filing a petition to having him committed as a sexual predator.
In its most recent story, Racine Uncovered found that Thomas had three previous convictions for sexual assault starting in 1965 when he inappropriately touched a 9-year-old Racine girl.
