Salem Lakes Trustee Ted Kmiec called 9-1-1 on March 21, 2022 at 6:55 pm. He reported to dispatchers that his mistress was dead. He described her as cold and stiff. The medical examiner came to the scene of Kmiec’s beachfront house at 9:07 pm. The death was not found to be natural. The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department has been actively investigating this death now for almost a year. According to a source, charges are expected soon.
We attempted contact with Kmiec, who is also a local attorney. We emailed his official Village of Salem Lakes email address and his email address listed on the Wisconsin State Bar for his law office. We asked him if he was involved somehow in the death or was a suspect. We received no response from Kmiec, who is currently married. An obituary for the woman listed Kmiec as her boyfriend.
The woman who passed away was a high-ranking official at a local non-profit – the same non-profit that the Village of Salem Lakes donted $15,000 to on September 12, 2022. Kmiec made the motion to approve this donation and it passed unanimously. Kmiec is now allegedly dating the director of this non-profit. We contacted the director of this non-profit and she lawyered up. Her lawyer told us she would not comment on the matter.
This is a developing story.
