Victoria Prokopovitz’s husband charged with her murder

Victoria Lynn Prokopovitz has been missing from Pittsfield, Wisconsin for six years and counting. Her daughter, Marsha Loritz, was the one who started those missing persons event I go to every year. Marsha is a very sweet person, just lovely. She cries when she talks about her mother’s disappearance.

Well, it looks like answers may finally be coming, because yesterday, Vicki’s husband, James, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and perjury. James’s girlfriend, Kathryn Friday, whom he started seeing just a month after Vicki vanished, was charged with perjury and obstructing an officer.

This isn’t really a surprise; James had been a suspect in his wife’s disappearance for awhile now. I don’t know whether I should be happy or sad for Marsha. James had been her stepfather since she was a kid and I’m sure she hoping someone else was responsible for whatever happened to her mom. She always said she didn’t know what happened and just wanted to find out, find her mother.

I hope James confesses, pleads guilty and discloses the location of Vicki’s body without any further BS. Not only is he a murderer, but he basically tortured Marsha and her sister and the rest of the family for the past six years by not letting them know what happened.

    Yes, this is so much for Marsha Loritz and her sister to process right now. They probably have every emotion you can have going all at once. I can’t even imagine.

    Victoria husband, killed her to hook up with the new girlfriend, who is older then she was. I am missing something with this picture. Off course, they may have been headed for a breakup of their marriage.

      Hey I know this is an old post but I recently read it and found something that might answer your “what’s missing with this picture” question…

      What’s “missing” is actually in the pictures themselves (at least I think so). Take a good long look at the photos of the suspect and his mistress. Every facial feature is identical, including some unusual features. The more I study them, the more similar they become to me. Facial shape, hairline, eyes, eyebrows, nose and nostrils, mouth…I think these two people are related somehow. I just can’t get over the similarities, to the point of wanting to go all Forensic-Files on it by superimposing one pic over the other.p and seeing them match up.

      I’d bet my lunch that these two are biologically related.

    I know this is an old blog post, and I’m only commenting because I decided to do a search of all of your tags for “murder without a body”, for no legit reason other than curiosity. Anyhow, during that search I saw your blog post on this case and so I read your casefile.

    What’s striking to me is how much the suspect and his mistress look alike. As in, closely related. I studied the two pictures you have (one for each of them) and I’m shocked at the similarities. Their facial shapes, bone structure, eyes, eyebrows, noses (pretty much the same nose on both), mouths, frown lines…I can’t imagine how such similarities can occur in two unrelated people. Maybe, but I don’t know…

    I feel like I want to see DNA tests on these two. If it turns out they are related, and with the likely age difference between them (just speculation on my part), it’s possible the female suspect was abused by the male and that might help her case criminally.

    Or I might be completely wrong (it happens more often than I’d like to admit).
