Julie Ann Hanson was reported missing on July 8, 1972. Her body was discovered later that same day in a field in Naperville near 87th Street and Modaff Road. She had been stabbed multiple times.
No suspect was immediately identified, and Naperville Police Detectives have continued to investigate the murder over the last 49 years. The breakthrough in this case came through technological advancements in DNA and genetic genealogy analysis.
Whelpley, who was 27 at the time of Julie Ann Hanson's murder, is a former resident of Naperville and lived within a mile of the Hanson residence. He was taken into custody in Minnesota, where he is awaiting extradition to Illinois. He has been charged by the Will County State's Attorney's Office with three (3) counts of First-Degree Murder. His bond was set at $10,000,000.
