The Village of Lombard set up Roberto Hung’s Labor Day Celebration on September 2, 1993 by making him pay Debra Sekrecki’s $2,800 in Lombard real estate property taxes in 1993 for Du Page County Due On September 2nd for the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow built in 1927 at the corner of 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard in District 5, near Saint Pius X Catholic Church Parish, in York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA.

Twenty-two years ago, Mr. Roberto Hung was a Chicago, Illinois resident and U.S. citizen who lived and rented from Mrs. A.C. Nylen on the Northwest side of Chicago, in the Avondale neighborhood.  The Nylens owned Chicago Real Estate property in Illinois and also invested in Wisconsin Real Estate, as well as other U.S. holdings.

After his birthday on June 7, 1993, when Mr. Roberto Hung became 62 years old, his youngest son and wife encouraged him to buy Lombard real estate property in Lilac Town with his oldest daughter and son-in-law who would help him pay for the historic Lombard brick bungalow at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard one block north from St. Pius X Church and School Parish and three blocks from the Illinois Secretary of State Motor Vehicles Facility at Eastgate Shopping Center.  The Westmore Elementary School is only one block north on School Street.  The Deicke Home for the Retarded is three blocks away from the same location.

On September 2, 1993, Twenty-two (22) years ago, my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung, decided to purchase a Lombard home at the corner of 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard, in York Township, District 5, owned by Debra Sekrecki with her two children, a boy named Steven Sekrecki and a daughter, as well as  a female tenant called Stella who lived on the second floor, in-law apartment, her boyfriend, and her father Adam Sekrecki.  Debra Sekrecki owed Lombard real estate taxes in Du Page County, Mr. Roberto Hung offered to pay the remaining Lombard real estate property taxes for Debra Sekrecki and her father Adam Sekrecki.  At the age of 62 years of age, my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung was persuaded by his youngest son Roberto S. Hung and his ex-wife Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, to purchase a Lombard home in September 1993.

Since Debra Sekrecki and her father Adam Sekrecki owed $2,800 in Lombard real estate property taxes in 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung had to pay Du Page County for the Lombard Brick Bungalow real estate taxes in York Township on September 2, 1993.  In addition, Mr. Roberto Hung also paid in cash $89,000, half of the down payment as deposit for the Lombard real estate property at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois 60148-3028 USA.  On September 2, 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung, his eldest daughter, and son-in-law began payment of Lombard real estate property mortgage to own the historic brick bungalow, while the three of them were working full-time, part-time, and on weekends.

Mr. Roberto Hung, his eldest daughter, and son-in-law started looking for Lombard real estate property to purchase during the summer in Du Page County, Illinois USA.  Finally, Mr. Roberto Hung found a Lombard Brick Bungalow at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard with the help of Baird & Warner Realtor Paulette Weininger and Century 21 Realtor Dino Lekousis from the Lombard Pines Shopping Center on Main Street, across from the J.W. Reedy Realty office.  The Lombard historic brick bungalow was built in 1927 and was owned by Debra Sekrecki and her father Adam Sekrecki, who lived there with two children, and a senior citizen named Stella who resided on the second floor in-law apartment.  Mr. Roberto Hung, his eldest daughter, and son-in-law purchased the Lombard historic brick bungalow and have lived in the Village of Lombard, Lilac Town, as Illinois resident homeowner in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA.

Three (3) years later on September 2, 1996, Mr. Roberto Hung and his eldest daughter completed full cash payment of the same Lombard real estate property at 502 S. Westmore Avenue at the Maple Park State Bank in Kane County, Illinois USA.  The eldest daughter was a witness to the full cash payment for the Lombard real estate property in Du Page County, Illinois USA.

At the turn-of-the-century, the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 S. Westmore Avenue and Washington Blvd. was owned by the Ahrens Family as a subdivision of part of the block “A” in Robertson’s Westmore, according to the Plat recorded June 1st, 1922 by the Du Page County Recorder of Deeds Office.  Both Mary Ahrens and Emil Ahrens lived at this Lombard Historic Brick home during 1929 and 1930, according to property records.

_________________________________________________________________________

During 1922, when the Ahrens recorded this property deed: a building ordinance was passed in the Village of Lombard , the superintendent of construction was appointed, and the Lombard village board studied zoning ordinance.  There were 2,200 acres in Du Page County, subdivided into residential lots—old farms were being subdivided.  According to the late Mrs. Steben, my elderly next-door neighbor, “the area was old farm land with horse stables, surrounded by corn fields”.

More petitions for new subdivisions were presented in 1922.  At the time, the Lombard trustees forecasted the expansion and uncontrolled growth.  There were dirt roads and muddy paths—“some sections were inundated by spring rains”.   According to Lillian Budd, Lombard historian, The Lombard News summarized, “…clamoring for water in pipes, while at the same time battling water not in pipes.”[5]  Some property owners laid water mains at their own expense, then asked permission to connect with the village water system.  The Village of Lombard planned street paving afterwards in 1922.

During March 19, 1927, the Village of Lombard issued new building permits.  By June 1927, eight (8) more building permits were issued.  At the time, property values in Lombard increased—“one vacant lot more than tripled in value, within one year”.[6]

     Two centuries later, on September 2nd, 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung, Sr. with his daughter and son-in-law purchased the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow from Debra Y. Sekrecki, with an initial down payment of $2,000, as earnest money paid by personal check, added to the total cash payment of $88,000 at a fixed interest rate not to exceed 8.00% per year, amortized over a period of fifteen (15) years.  At the time, Debra Y. Sekrecki had two (2) children, a boy and a girl, lived with Stella, the tenant upstairs, and father Adam Sekrecki.

     Three months before, on July 11, 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung signed a Standard Residential Sales Contract from the Du Page Association of Realtors in agreement to purchase the Lombard real estate property at 502 S. Westmore Avenue in Lombard, Illinois  60148-3028 , owned by seller Debra Y. Sekrecki.  The original closing date was scheduled on September 11, 1993.  However, Roberto Hung was called by telephone to appear sooner on September 2nd, 1993, at 3:30 p.m., at the law office of Alan Dakoff, Telephone:  708-966-0488, located at 9291 North Maryland, in Niles, Illinois  60714 , U.S.A.

     Century 21, Action Real Estate provided a Buyer Service Pledge presented by Steve Block, Telephone:  630-627-5500, and Dino, the real estate agent with Roberto Hung, who signed in agreement.  Afterwards, Roberto Hung received a copy of Rider 412, Buyer’s Inspection which he signed as buyer with Debra Sekrecki, as seller.   

     In 1993, Century 21, Action Real Estate described in a listing the Highlights of the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at the corner of Westmore Avenue and Washington Blvd., owned by Debra Y. Sekrecki with tenant Stella.  At the time, the Du Page County Real Estate Taxes were only $2,744 for the brick house.  After Roberto Hung purchased the same Lombard Brick House, the Lombard property taxes doubled for more than $4,000, without providing the senior citizens Homestead Exemption.

     This Lombard Brick Home is located  near Westmore Elementary School and St. Pius X Church School, Jackson Middle School , and Willowbrook High School . 

     George Hornbeck’s Parcel No. 06-09-315038 is a subdivision, spacious 4-bedroom brick home with a second floor in-law or potential income arrangement.  There are nine (9) room available with hardwood floors.  Full finished basement.  Front and rear enclosed porches for added living space.  Fully fenced yard with a gas grill.   There is a 2-car garage.  Public transportation is available.  This Lombard home is close to school and shopping, near the Eastgate Center and State of Illinois facilities for the Secretary of State Vehicle Licenses Center and the Illinois Employment and Training Center (I.E.T.C.).

     Action Real Estate for Century 21 was serving Du Page and Cook counties at the Lombard Pines Shopping Center, 1125-J South Main Street, Lombard, Illinois  60148, in care of realtor Dino.

     On September 2nd, 1996, Mr. Roberto Hung completed full cash payment of the Lombard Brick Home at Maple Park State Bank, witnessed by his daughter, Gardenia C. Hung, and the bank manager.  Mr. Roberto Hung and his eldest daughter, married to Nathan S. Wittler, improved this Lombard Brick house by adding oak cabinets, an exterior halogen flood night light, (2) automatic garage door openers, changed all door locks, added gardening landscaping, apple trees orchard, and perennial flowers, and exotic plant species.

Lombard Real Estate in Du Page Co. Photo by G. Hung — National Geographic Your Shot.


Labor Day on the first day of September 1, 2014 reminds me how I have worked in Du Page County and in the Village of Lombard before September 2, 1993, when I was employed by Carmen Alonso Kenny & Associates as a Certified Legal Interpreter and Translator for Du Page County Arbitration Center for Workers’ Compensation, Traffic Court at 421 North County Farm Road and the 18th Judicial Circuit Court at 505 North County Farm Road in the City of Wheaton. I also worked at the old courthouse in Geneva, and the new courthouse in St. Charles for the Kane County Judicial Center, including Batavia. Plus, I was assigned interpreting and translation in Elgin and Joliet in Will County; as well as court-appointed legal interpreting in Waukegan, Lake County, and in Woodstock, McHenry County, and beyond to LaSalle County, and DeKalb, in Illinois. For more than twenty (20) years, I have been a commissioned Illinois Notary Public for Cook County first, then for Du Page County by the Illinois Secretary of State and the County Clerk’s Office.
While reading the Chicago Tribune, I found out that Interlate Systems Inc. and Pan Blanco in Elgin, Aurora, and Batavia, owned by Brad White, a former College of Du Page employee who was hiring a Certified Interpreter and Translator in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. I was interviewed and hired as a Certified Legal Interpreter and Translator by Jacquie Guiter and Rene Hofsteder at the Interlate Systems Inc. office which was located in Elgin Downtown, along Route 30, not far from the Elgin Police Station.
Before and after I got married to Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin, I was working full-time, free-lance, and part-time on different jobs, occupations, and business sectors in the City of Chicago, Cook County, and outlaying suburbs of Du Page County, Kane County, Lake County, Will County, McHenry County, LaSalle County, DeKalb, and at my home business office.
In addition, I was working for Berlitz Schools at 2 North LaSalle Street in the City of Chicago with Milanka who was the Berlitz Method Trainer, Josepha and June, the receptionist. Then, I was assigned by Berlitz to teach for Beth, the Director, upon assignments from Sally at the Water Tower Place across from the John Hancock Center. Afterwards, Beth moved the Berlitz office to Hinsdale and later opened another Berlitz school in Oak Brook, Du Page County, Illinois USA. Beth at Berlitz assigned me to teach Berlitz Junior at the Butler Middle School on York Road, across from the Oak Brook Country Club and also at Brook Forest Elementary School, along 31st Street in Du Page County, Illinois USA.
After my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung purchased the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, I was driving to and from work upon assignment for Certified Legal Interpreting and Translation, Teaching, Cross-Cultural Training, Consulting Language Social Media jobs for clients, Marketing Localization for AIM Translations managed by Karen in Bloomingdale, and other language work for Business Access Translation managed by Rosa Ridderbusch in Zurich, Illinois.
While I was working all day during mornings, afternoon, and evenings, Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin and my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung, allowed intruders to roam, ransack, steal, and scatter business documents, a community certificate from the Chinese American Service League, personal belongings, an 18 Karat Gold Bracelet which has been heirloom jewelry that my Grandmother and family had given to me, fashion clothing, intimate apparel, and miscellaneous business and teaching resources which have been stolen and removed from my personal use by the Lombard Police Department and the Illinois Court Houses in Du Page County, Cook County, and other places in the Chicagoland area. I have even lost my Minolta Camera Flash, JVC Digital Film Cassettes, and other teaching media from my work environment after I moved to the Village of Lombard on September 2, 1993.
I have also lost two (2) Tennis Rackets and Tennis Balls, a Tachikara Volleyball, Golfsmith Putting Golf Club, Golf Shoes, Golf Balls, and many other valuables which have been stolen from my Lombard home, allowed by the Lombard Police Department in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA.
In 1992, my Mother Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos and my youngest brother Robert S. Hung with his boyfriend Paul Rathe purchased a Lombard home with homeowners’ credit and a cash down deposit of $10,000 given by my Father Mr. Roberto Hung from his IRA retirement funds. Then, they moved to the Lilac Town with a Pomeranian dog near Sunset Knolls Park District on Finley Road, Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Elizabeth Street, and Lilacia Park near Main Street in the Village of Lombard, Du Page County, Illinois USA. Randy Stob is the Lombard realtor who sold my brother Robert the real estate property in Du Page County and deliberately set out to bring the rest of the family of Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor, his Daughter, and Husband to buy a Lombard home in Du Page County, Illinois.
When Paul Rathe, a young urban gay who lived on Roscoe Street near Halsted Street, Boys Town and Lakeview in Chicago, convinced my youngest brother and mother to buy a Lombard home and move to the western suburbs in Du Page County during 1992, he did not tell them that buying Lombard real estate would cause chronic health and medical problems for them, long-term disease, psychiatric problems, violence against women, assault, physical abuse, biomedical and bio-sexual transgendered studies, hospitalizations, traumatic brain injuries, head concussions, tragedy, family death, and abuse of human rights in housing under the law in York Township, Illinois, USA.
Paul Rathe introduced my brother and mother to Baird & Warner realtor Paulette Weininger who found a Lombard home for them at 342 West Harrison Street near Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Elizabeth Street, Finley Road and Main Street close to Walgreens, near the Du Page County Crisis Unit, a Medical Group Practice located at 440 South Finley Road and Washington Blvd. in the Village of Lombard, Illinois 60148 USA. Linda Schuster who lived in Westmont was the girlfriend of Paul Rathe who referred my brother and mother to buy a house in Village of Lombard, also known as Lilac Town for the annual Lilac Parade celebration near Main Street in Spring time.
Randy Stob, the Lombard realtor who sold them the real estate property at 342 West Harrison Street near Elizabeth Street and Finley Road, began to encourage my brother Robert S. Hung and my Mother to bring other people in the family, to include her Daughter with her father and husband to buy Lombard real estate property in Du Page County, Illinois USA.
Since my Mother and Brother purchased Lombard real estate property from the same Lombard realtor, I have been kidnapped four (4) times during the course of employment and from my Lombard home in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, upon return from working by friends of the Lombard realtor and his associates in the Du Page Realtors Association in Illinois USA.
I had already worked as a Certified Legal Interpreter and Translator in Wheaton, Geneva, Oak Brook in Du Page County, as well as St. Charles, Batavia, Elgin, Aurora in Kane County, and DeKalb, Illinois.
During June 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung started looking to purchase real estate property for a home in Du Page County near my brother and mother in Lombard, Illinois. After my Father, myself, and my husband purchased a historic Lombard Brick Bungalow at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard, near Saint Pius X Catholic Church, we began to invite and entertain family and friends at our Lombard home in District 5, Du Page County, Illinois USA. During April 1994 and Lilac Time, the family of Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor entertained and hosted Nathan S. Wittler’s retired Christian missionary parents, Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler Patriquin who were travelling in the Chicago area and the United States on furlough from Istanbul, Turkey, in the Middle East.
In addition, my Mother’s youngest sister, Mrs. Xiomara Fong Ramos de Zayas from Santiago de Cuba, was invited to visit the Village of Lombard for six (6) months to stay with her oldest sister whom she had not seen in more than twenty (20) years—our family had left Cuba during the Catholic Freedom Flights and arrived in Miami, Florida on July 19, 1971. My parents, Mr. Roberto Hung and Mother Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, chose to relocate to Chicago, Illinois sponsored by Catholic Charities.
After my Mother’s sister, Aunt Xiomara Fong Ramos de Zayas, visited the Village of Lombard in 1994, I was kidnapped after I completed an interpreting assignment for Interlate Systems Inc. in Aurora, Kane County, Illinois USA. I was working as a Certified Legal Interpreter and Translator, also as commissioned Illinois Notary Public for more than twenty (20) years, working with Action Translation Bureau managed by Joseph Raudonis in Palos Heights, Carmen Kenny & Associates in Arlington Heights, Interlate Systems Inc. in Elgin and Batavia, Kane County, and other translation agencies affiliated to the Chicago Area Translators Association (CHICATA) and the American Translators Association (ATA) under the aegis of the Federation of International Translators (FIT).
My name is Gardenia C. Hung, estranged spouse of Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin, DOB December 27, 1958, Age 55 years old, eldest daughter of the late Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor and his surviving widow Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, DOB February 2, 1938, a disabled, retired senior citizen, 76 years of age, who was transferred from Elmhurst Memorial Hospital during the year 2006 to the Chicagoland area unbeknown to me, her first daughter who is a Lombard resident homeowner and was living at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois 60148-3028 USA.
Eight (8) years have passed since I last saw my Mother, Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, who is now a disabled senior citizen living on the north side of Chicago, 48th Democratic Ward, in the Edgewater neighborhood, near Loyola University, Lake Shore Campus by Lake Michigan, Illinois USA.
I am a Lombard resident homeowner and Catholic parishioner near St. Pius X Catholic Church, who was helping my Mother Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, widow of the late Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor, after her forced hospitalization to the Psychiatric Ward in the care of Dr. McKenna and Social Worker Tilary at Illinois Masonic Medical Center by Jim Wilbrot, Sally, Timothy Tromasina, James and his friends in Oak Park, who committed her with the Chicago Police Department on Addison Street near Halsted Street , In the Lakeview and Boys’ Town neighborhoods during 2005.
I have not seen My Mother since January 12, 2006 when I found her injured at our Lombard Brick Bungalow, 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, across Mrs. Shimek’s green home and Robyn’s brick brownstone.
Eight (8) years have passed since the Du Page County Clerk Gary King told me that my Mother was dead, but I did not believe him when I replied that my Mother was not dead. Du Page County and Cook County Social Workers and other medical facilities in Illinois have not contacted me as my Mother’s daughter and next-of-kin family member, even when my Mother was staying with me as a Lombard resident during November and December 2005, and January 2006.

“Roberto Hung’s Vacation To Miami, Florida, and Queens/Flushing, New York in the USA”

In 1993, after Mr. Roberto Hung J.D. purchased Lombard real estate property and moved to the Village of Lombard on September 2, 1993, he developed a thumb infection from a steel metal splinter acquired at work during the 3rd shift for Felt-Products After Market Auto Parts Division. Consequently, Roberto Hung developed a fever and a swollen thumb which was festering and required medical attention; then he was hospitalized with a swollen thumb infection at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois USA. I remember driving to visit my Father, Roberto Hung, who was hospitalized as an in-patient at St. Francis Hospital from Lombard in DuPage County to Evanston on the North Shore by Lake Michigan. Since there was no hospital or medical health center in the Village of Lombard, Roberto Hung retained his health care plan at work from the Felt-Products Corporation in Skokie and kept his medical insurance group on the North Shore Clinic near Rogers Park and St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois USA.

After Roberto Hung’s medical leave and recovery from hospitalization, he went back to work at Felt-Pro in Skokie, Illinois, driving every night from Lombard in DuPage County after midnight and around 2:00 o’clock in the morning twilight to his new Lombard Brick Bungalow Home in District 5, near St. Pius X Catholic Church and School in York Township.

The following year in 1994, during the Spring, my Mother’s youngest sister Xiomara Fong Ramos de Zayas from Santiago de Cuba was invited to visit her and my youngest brother at 342 Harrison near Sunset Knolls Park and Main Street where the Lilac Parade takes place. I picked up my Aunt Xiomara at O’Hare Airport because my youngest brother was working all day at Allstate Insurance Company in Northbrook, Illinois. This family reunion took 23 years to become a special event for all of us and included more relatives who were planning to meet and gather in our new Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard. Aunt Xiomara has a lot of pictures, memorabilia, and photographs of her visit in Lombard during Lilac Time—more than enough good memories to return again during Spring 1998, four years later—(after my Father, Roberto Hung was bedridden, disabled, and unemployed following a home invasion and assault which caused a Traumatic Brain Injury and Aneurysm on December 21-22, 1996).

Later in Spring 1994, Nathan S. Wittler’s parents Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler Patriquin announced their home visit to the Village of Lombard since they were driving from West Dummerston, Brattleboro in Vermont across the USA on holiday vacation to Hartington, Nebraska to visit Grandmother Wittler and Duane Wittler his brother who lived on the family farm near Lincoln, Nebraska with his sister Virginia and husband George Fox.

When Nathan S. Wittler went on vacation to West Dummerston, Bratteboro in New England to visit the Wittlers at the farm by the West River in South Vermont, I stayed at our Lombard home while I was working in DuPage County and the Chicagoland area in Illinois USA.

Six years before, the Wittlers had met my Father and Uncle Filiberto Hung and his wife Mireya Hung and daughter Ana Mireya Hung Lee during the 1988 wedding at Olive Park by Navy Pier and remembered the Wedding Reception aboard the Star of Chicago along Lake Michigan which was well attended by Nathan S. Wittler’s family including his Grandmother and Uncle Duane Wittler, his Aunt Virginia and husband George Fox, and his brothers Bryan, Kent, youngest sister Heather and her fiancé John Eruren at that time. In addition, Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler had invited her brother Dr. David Patriquin and Mrs. Cynthia Patriquin and more friends to attend the Wedding Reception and Dinner aboard the Star of Chicago by Lake Michigan during Father’s Day weekend on June 18, 1988. My Mother did not attend my wedding day and refused to be involved in the wedding plans and festivities while she lived with my youngest brother during 1988.

From 1988 through 1996, I was working and lived as a Lombard resident homeowner in DuPage County, Illinois, I was at staying at the Lombard Brick Bungalow while my Father, Roberto Hung was on vacation visiting his family and relatives in Miami, Florida and Flushing, New York.

Afterwards, my Father went on Vacations To Visit His Family Relatives, His Brothers, His Sisters, Nephews and Nieces in Florida and New York. I drove my Father, Roberto Hung to the O’Hare Airport to catch his flights to Miami, Florida, to visit his oldest brother Miguel Hung, his son Miguel Hung-Simons and wife Pamela Hung Maggiano, Daughter Brittany and son Mike Hung with all the family; also travelled to New York La Guardia Airport near Queens, Flushing where my Uncle Filiberto and Aunt Mireya lived with his family, Ana Mireya, Ileana, Santiago and Grandson Rafael Hung. Roberto Hung also visited his youngest sister Caridad “Cei-Chieng” Fong and brother-in-law Joaquin Fong and children, Joaquin Jr. and daughter Teresa Tan with her family.

During his travel vacations, my Father, Roberto Hung, also visited his oldest sister Luz “Leing” Mock and her son Guillermo Mock, his wife Millie and other family relatives.

Aunt Xiomara only has one son whose name is Pedro also, married to Xiomara with two children Eliannie and Rafael Alejandro Zayas. My Mother is the God-mother of Xiomara’s son Pedro.

My Mother’s third sister Xiomara was born on July 28, 1948, ten years after her oldest sister and middle sister Dulce María, all legitimate daughters of the Chinese national Alberto Fong and Cuban Irene Ramos Mejías, who managed the business of the Tailoring Garment Factory and Dry Cleaners, Downtown in Kingston, Jamaica. My Grandmother Irene’s oldest son José also known as “Pepín” was the first child from her first marriage. Then my Mother was born in 1938 as the first daughter of her second marriage to Alberto Fong in Santiago de Cuba. Her second broher José Alberto was born before the middle daughter Dulce María, Xiomara was born afterwards, and the youngest son Miguel was born the last of six children begotten by Irene Ramos Mejías during her lifetime between Santiago de Cuba and Kingston, Jamaica.

During 1994, Aunt Xiomara visited Miami, Florida, and the Village of Lombard in York Township, DuPage County, Illinois USA. My Mother and youngest brother invited Aunt Xiomara to visit us, after our family purchased two (2) Lombard homes in the state of Illinois, United States of America. Aunt Xiomara travelled by herself to North America. When Aunt Xiomara arrived to O’Hare Airport, we went to pick her up for her holiday visit to Chicago and the Village of Lombard where she stayed with my Mother and youngest brother at 342 West Harrison Street near Main Street and Lilacia Park. That same year, other house guests were invited to our Lombard homes. Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler (Patriquin) my in-laws and parents of my husband Nathan Scott Wittler, were driving across North America from South Vermont in New England during the Spring of 1994 and coincided with my Aunt Xiomara during our family reunion. My Father, Mr. Roberto Hung invited all of us to breakfast, lunch, and dinner at his expense as a welcoming host in our Lombard home at 502 S. Wesmtmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, DuPage County, Illinois USA.

While Aunt Xiomara was visiting us in the Village of Lombard, I used to pick her up in my sportscar Nissan 200SX and driver her to go shopping at the Oakbrook Center to purchase fashion clothes at Lord & Taylor, Marshall Field’s and other stores in DuPage County, Illinois. I bought Aunt Xiomara fashion garments as gifts to take back with her upon returning to Santiago de Cuba.

In the past, Uncle Pedro Zayas, Aunt Xiomara and her son Pedro lived in Europe and travelled through London, England, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Germany and the Central European States.

When Aunt Xiomara was a young girl, she used to help my Mother while she was studying to be a teacher at the Normal School for Teachers and the University of Oriente in Santiago de Cuba. Aunt Xiomara used to keep my Mother company as a youngest sister, closest friend, and chaperone when the latter met my Father, Roberto Hung when they were introduced at a social event in Santiago de Cuba, before my parents were married on March 23, 1957.

Aunt Xiomara is ten (10) years older than I am. Last July 28th, she celebrated her 64th birthday anniversary in Santiago de Cuba where she lives with her family, grandchildren, friends, and co-workers.

The family of my Aunt Xiomara and Uncle Pedro Zayas, they also have other relatives who live in state of New Jersey and across the United States of America and around the world.


A Murder-For-Hire Target in DuPage County, Illinois USA

Driving away from the Chicagoland area into the outlaying western suburbs of DuPage County, operatives, mercenaries, and hired unknown make the perfect setting to murder-for-hire Lombard residents and homeowners drawn into York Township real estate conspiracies, insidious plots, scenarios, arranged accidents in motor vehicles, tainted food, physical abuse after working a full day, home invasions, hypodermic injections to the throat and aorta veins during sleep in bed or in sequester, induced drugs, alcoholic beverages, cardiac stroke or heart attack, apparent suicide, knife stabbings, beatings, repeated hospitalizations, trespassing into private property, tragedies, disasters, arsons, kidnappings at home and after work, torture, abuse, assault, robberies, poisonings, bullet gun shootings, laser guns, taser devices and weapons, hospital abuse of patients, and heinous hate crimes surrounding the Village of Lombard, District 5, in the state of Illinois, USA.

Murder-For-Hire Victims in Lombard are targeted as Business Owners, Homeowners, and Residents which are identified before they settle into the DuPage County area by realtors and realty companies who solicit for referrals in the state of Illinois, USA.

During 1994, the Daughter of Roberto Hung was kidnapped by a Black man who had arranged to meet with the interpreter from the Chicago Area Translators and Interpreters for interpreting translation assignment work in Aurora, Kane County, Illinois. The Daughter of Roberto Hung was targeted for several attempts of Murder-For-Hire by kidnappings, home invasions, induced injections, cardiac stroke, traumatic head injury, head concussions, physical abuse, torture, and sexual abuse; auto malfunction and tampering with the car brakes which caused a rollover auto accident in the green GEO Tracker SUV, engine failure, broken front auto axle, rear end collision by a taxi in Park Ridge, Illinois, and many other kidnappings attempts.

Roberto Hung was a real estate customer of Baird and Warner Realtor Paulette Weininger who was in turn a business associate of Linda Schuster, a Westmont resident homeowner, also known as the girlfriend of Paul Rathe who referred Roberto Hung’s youngest son and wife to buy a house in Village of Lombard, also known as Lilac Town for the Lilac Parade celebration near Main Street. His youngest son and wife moved to the Village of Lombard in 1992 urged by the insistence of Paul Rathe, a boyfriend who lived in Boys’ Town, the gay neighborhood area on Roscoe St. near Halsted St., Lakeview area in Chicago, Illinois.

Twenty-two (22) years ago, Roberto Hung purchased a second Lombard home at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard upon referral from Baird & Werner Realtor Paulette Weininger who contacted Century 21 Realtor Dino N. Lekousis at the Lombard Pines Shopping Center during August 1993. His divorced wife and youngest son had already purchased the first Lombard home at 342 West Harrison and Elizabeth Street, near Finley Road by the Lombard Park District in DuPage County, Illinois USA.

Roberto Hung’s youngest son’s friends and realtors wanted him to ask for $10,000 cash in down payment for the Lombard home, coming from the automotive gasket manufacturing Felt-Pro IRA retirement funds and life-savings from working 4-5 jobs during the week and weekends; in addition, he had to provide monthly cash support for his divorced wife and son while they were living in a Lombard home near the Sunset Knolls Park District and the Lombard Crisis Intervention Center on Finley Road, in DuPage County, Illinois.

One year afterwards, the youngest son and wife insisted that Roberto Hung move to Lombard with his Daughter and Son-in-law in order to buy a second home with the remainder of the 401K and IRA retirement savings funds. The Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard was built in 1927 in Lilac Town, District 5, York Township in DuPage County, Illinois USA. This Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow remained at the corner of Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard, since the Ahrens Family built the Lombard property in 1927.

Soon after Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor purchased the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow with his Daughter and Son-in-law on September 2, 1993 from Debra Y. Sekrecki and Adam Sekrecki, her father, Stella and two children, there were unauthorized access entries into the private Lombard home by intruders and Village of Lombard employees at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, DuPage County, Illinois USA.

At the time, Debra Y. Sekrecki had two (2) children, a boy and a girl, lived with Stella, and elderly senior woman who was the tenant living upstairs, and father Adam Sekrecki. Three months before, on July 11, 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung had signed a Standard Residential Sales Contract from the Du Page Association of Realtors in agreement to purchase the Lombard real estate property at 502 S. Westmore Avenue in Lombard, Illinois 60148-3028 , owned by seller Debra Y. Sekrecki. The original closing date was scheduled on September 11, 1993. However, he was called by telephone to appear sooner on September 2nd, 1993, at 3:30 p.m., at the law office of Alan Dakoff, Telephone: 708-966-0488, located at 9291 North Maryland, in Niles, Illinois 60714 , U.S.A. Century 21, Action Real Estate provided a Buyer Service Pledge presented by Steve Block, Telephone: 630-627-5500, and Dino, the real estate agent with Roberto Hung and family, who signed in agreement.

Trespassers into Roberto Hung’s Lombard home learned that he worked the evening to midnight shift at the Felt-Products Corporation on McCormick Boulevard in Skokie, Illinois; while his Daughter worked teaching during the day, afternoon, and taught evening classes until 9:30 PM, arriving late at night home; his Son-in-law was also working at Premier Assistance GESA Groupe Européen across from the Willis Tower South Loop, Downtown in Chicago during the whole day, afternoon, and arrived home in the evening. The Lombard neighbors John, Liz, Shawn, Monique and Taylor, Brian and others were witnesses and observers to the unknown intruders with copies of spare household keys from the former owners, tenants, and realtors who used the real estate property at the corner 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, Lombard, Illinois 60148-3028 USA. The Lombard neighbors would tell visitors that Roberto Hung, his Daughter and Son-in-law, “they were not home during the day, afternoon, or night because they were working.”

In 1994, the unknown intruders began marauding Roberto Hung’s Lombard home driving along Washington Boulevard and around the corner on Westmore-Meyers Road in District 5, York Township, DuPage County, Illinois. Afterwards Roberto Hung went on vacation to Miami, Hialeah, Broward and Kendall County, in Florida, while his Daughter and Son-in-law stayed behind working in Illinois.

During 1994, the Daughter was kidnapped by a Black man who had arranged to meet with the interpreter from the Chicago Area Translators and Interpreters for interpreting translation assignment work in Aurora, Kane County, Illinois. The Daughter of Roberto Hung was targeted for several attempts of Murder-For-Hire by kidnappings, home invasions, induced injections, cardiac stroke, traumatic head injury, head concussions, physical abuse, torture, and sexual abuse; auto malfunction and tampering with the car brakes which caused a rollover auto accident in the green GEO Tracker SUV, engine failure, broken front auto axle, rear end collision by a taxi in Park Ridge, Illinois, and many other kidnappings attempts.

Since the Daughter of Roberto Hung moved to the Village of Lombard, she had several near-death experiences and motor vehicles with mechanical failures leading to accidents on the Illinois roads and highways. There was a bullet hole on the middle window of the Lombard Brick Bungalow facing Washington Boulevard at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road in the Village of Lombard, York Township, County of DuPage, Illinois, United States of America. The Lombard neighbors residing directly across Washington Boulevard reported criminal access to the Hung-Wittler Family garage after Midnight. Lombard Police Reports support criminal access to the Motor Vehicles owned by the Hung-Wittler Family during their Lombard residency as homeowners and taxpayers at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road.

While the Daughter of Roberto Hung was was working as a Federal Employee Claims Examiner Analyst for the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workman’s Compensation, Employment Standards Administration, General Services Administration at 230 South Dearborn Street, Klucynski Building on the 8th Floor, she had a motor vehicle accident driving the Nissan 200SX near Lawrence Avenue in Chicago, Illinois during October 1991.

After midnight and while the Daughter was sleeping at home following a working day as a Certified Legal Court Interpreter and Translator, intruders would come into the house and inject her on the right side of the neck, behind the right ear and on the rear of the right ear—when she was unconscious and sleeping during the kidnapping.

As a Lombard Victim of High Crimes at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road, all the Daughter’s Illinois Motor Vehicles suffered from human sabotage and conspiracy malfunction leading to mechanical failures, damages, and losses which caused accidents on the highway during the course of employment as a Certified Court Interpreter, Translator at the Illinois County Courts, City Courts, and Traffic Courts in Aurora, Addison, Elgin, Joliet, St. Charles, Waukegan, Highland Park, Wheaton, DeKalb, LaSalle, Grundy, Geneva, Chicago, Skokie, and during employment as a Communications Consultant for Arroyave Language Academy in Highland Park and Arlington Heights, Berlitz Schools of Languages, Inlingua School of Languages, as an Adjunct Faculty for the College of DuPage, Business Professional Institute, Center for Independent Learning. The AAA Motor Club and Shell Motor Club provided emergency towing service and assistance on the Illinois highways during Motor Vehicle Failures and Accident.

The Illinois State Police have assisted and witnessed the Geo Tracker Rollover Accident, the Daughter had off the ramp from Route 83, Kingery Hwy, leading to I-90 one evening, on her way to Highland Park for the Arroyave Academy evening class where she was teaching, when she returned from Berlin, Germany and London, United Kingdom in Europe. During the rainy drive, the Geo Tracker SUV Brakes failed to stop the motor vehicle driving up the ramp, and steered away from the road, off the highway onto to a water ditch. The Daughter could not stop the Geo Tracker from rolling off and driving into the water ditch off the ramp on I-90 and Route 83, Kingery Highway. The Geo Tracker was also stolen from the College of DuPage West Parking Lot by the Police Academy, while she was teaching Spanish for Health Care Professionals at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, as reported by the Glen Ellyn Police Department. The Daughter had Flat Tires before going to work at the College of DuPage. Also, the Geo Tracker had Electrical Failures when the Fuses Blew Out.

Then, when the Daughter used the Nissan 200SX, the Front Axle Broke Off and Right Front Tire Drove Off the highway on I-90 off Route 83, Kingery Highway, when she was on her way to the Arroyave Academy evening class which she was teaching in Highland Park, Illinois. She had to call for Emergency Towing Service and cancel the last class she was teaching for Guillermo Arroyave Academy of Languages in Highland Park.

The Daughter and Son-in-law tried to order a Brand New Mercedes SUV from Loeber Motors in Westmont, but the Motor Vehicle Had a Damaged Tire and Axle as an Imported Car from Germany—reported to the German-American Chamber of Commerce in Chicago, Illinois.

Afterwards, she used her Father’s White Mitsubishi Galant which was Damaged and Sabotaged when After Midnight Intruders into the Garage Used Glue Poured on the Engine, which Caused Smoke Leading to a Hole in the Engine Block—There is a Picture of the Hole in the Engine Block after the Mechanic Replaced the Entire Engine Block. The Mitsubishi Galant was permanently damaged and given to Bongo’s Towing Service in Villa Park, Illinois.

Later, on May 29 and subsequently during June 2003, the Daughter of Roberto Hung purchased two (2) motorcycles, a Yamaha Zuma and a Derbi Boulevard 150 CC from Julio Aquino and Larry Wolfe at Champion Cycle Center, Inc. paying cash for both purchases. Both, the Yamaha Zuma and the Derbi Boulevard 150 CC suffered from Motorcycle Mechanical Failures at Champion Cycle Center, Inc.

When the Daughter of Roberto Hung moved to the Village of Lombard during September 1993, the Hung-Wittler Family had four (4) Motor Vehicles which have been damaged to cause automobile accidents on the road to and from work, deliberately sabotaged by humans, and disabled after midnight at the garage for 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard.

Although the surviving family of Roberto Hung still drives, they no longer have any Motor Vehicles in the Village of Lombard due to Conspiracy, Sabotage, Mechanical Failure, Damages and Losses at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road. The Village of Lombard owes Compensation for Motor Vehicles Damages and Losses to the Surviving Family of Mr. Roberto Hung, his Daughter, and Son-in-law Nathan S. Wittler as Illinois Victims of High Crimes in York Township, County of DuPage, Illinois, U.S.A.

Five (5) years After Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor completed payment of the purchased Lombard real estate property at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, he was abused and murdered by Respiratory Therapist Ben Aguilar at Vencor Northlake Hospital in Cook County, Illinois.

The Lombard Police Department had the Daughter kidnapped while she was sleeping with her husband Nathan Scott Wittler in the Master Bedroom at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in the Village of Lombard, County of Du Page, Illinois.

The Lombard Police had unauthorized access entry to the Hung Family home after midnight and opened the porch side door with a key, allowing several skinhead males to come into the Hung Family home when the Daughter, Gardenia C. Hung-Wittler was sleeping with her husband Nathan Scott Wittler. Then one of the skinhead men pulled her off the bed, away from her husband and began to inject her, to take her away from her home in Lombard. The unknown skinhead man kidnapped the Daughter away from her family and took her to a hospital in Du Page County, Illinois. The Daughter of Roberto Hung never received any medical records or reports from the DuPage County Hospital near the Village of Lombard in Illinois. The Daughter of Roberto Hung has been kidnapped on several occasions by the Lombard police who also forced her hospitalization at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, Ward D. The Daughter of Roberto Hung reported forced hospitalization by the Lombard Police at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, medical service fraud and abuse of a patient to the health insurance company which her husband paid at work for Premier Assistance GESA Groupe Européen, Logistics Systems in Bensenville, Jewel-Osco Lombard store on Main Street, DuPage County, Illinois.

Maxfield’s Pancake House is West Roosevelt Road in Lombard, DuPage County, Illinois

Four (4) years ago, both Michelle Leaver and her Mother Olivia Hung-Simons drove to the western suburbs for breakfast at 352 East Roosevelt Road, Maxfield’s Pancake House to meet me on Saturday morning for Brunch with Henry William Hochstatter, on August 15th, 2009, during the Summer of 2009.  Michelle Leaver is the daughter of Wayne Leaver and Olivia Hung-Simons, who was staying at the Columbia College Downtown Residence while she was sent to study in Chicago, Illinois where her father Wayne Leaver was raised and educated.  Wayne Leaver wanted Michelle, his youngest daughter to live and study in the Windy City by Lake Michigan, Illinois USA.  Afterwards, Michelle Leaver moved to Oak Park and River Forest, near Concordia College.

When I received a telephone call from Olivia and Michelle, I was surprised to hear that they were both in Chicago, Illinois.  I had not seen my Cousin Olivia Hung-Simons for more than thirty years.  Olivia is the niece and god-daughter of  my Father, the late Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor who visited her Father Miguel Hung and family in Miami, Kendall County, Florida.

Friends of Roberto Hung’s family encouraged Michelle Leaver and her Mother to meet with me in Lombard because Michelle had a roommate who lived in DuPage County, and visited there regularly and over the weekends.

Maxfield’s Pancake House is a nice family restaurant to meet and reconnect with relatives and friends in Lombard and the western suburbs of  DuPage County, Illinois.

The family meeting with my Cousin Olivia and her Daughter Michelle Leaver was pleasant over breakfast for four people since I had invited them to meet me with Henry W. Hochstatter on Saturday morning at Maxfield’s, a popular eatery on weekends.  I had not seen Cousin Olivia since she had married Wayne Leaver or met her daughter Michelle who had been living and visiting in Chicago, Illinois for several years, unbeknown to me and my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

During the family meeting, Michelle and Olivia wanted to take digital photos of our gathering at Maxfield’s.  After breakfast, Olivia and Michelle were planning to drive to Rockford, Illinois and return in the evening for dinner.  So, Olivia invited me and Henry to have dinner at T.G.I.F. in Oak Park by 7:30 P.M.  At T.G.I. Friday’s we exchanged gifts for Olivia and Michelle Leaver.

Afterwards, Michelle Leaver left Chicago suddenly, got into a car accident, and became pregnant.  Since then, Michelle Leaver gave birth to a son whose name is Joseph.  During July 2013, Michelle Leaver and Olivia Hung-Simons have removed all the photos from Facebook and the Internet.

My name is Gardenia C. Hung, Illinois Victim of Crimes for the last twenty-two (22) years after I worked as a federal employee full-time at the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workman’s Compensation, Employment Standards Administration, General Services Administration, at the Kluczynski Building, 230 North Dearborn Street, 8th Floor, in Chicago, Illinois. Since 1991-1992, I have been denied Crime Victims’ Rights in the State of Illinois for this 22-year-old case matter in Department of Labor court summons, court hearings, court appearances, arbitrations, meetings, panel discussions, U.S. Mail notifications, advisories, etc. In addition, the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workers’ Compensation staff had me held by force to induce drug injection on the right thumb to paralyze my right hand and wrist during October 1991.

Twenty-two (22) years ago, I worked for the U.S. Department of Labor at the John C. Kluczynski Building, 230 S. Dearborn St., 8th Floor, Chicago, Illinois  60604 across from the Dirksen Federal Court building, and next the Loop Station U.S. Post Office, downtown.  In 1991, I was still a newlywed married to Nathan Scott Wittler for three years, hoping to have a baby.  I lived on the Northwest side of Chicago at the corner of West Belle Plaine and North Sacramento in a building owned by Mrs. A.C. Nylen and family of realtors in Chicago, Illinois USA.  During the decade of the 1990s, I lived near my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung who worked for the Felt-Products Corporation in Skokie, Illinois.  As a newlywed, I was always working and looking for work to do.  I had already worked for healthcare travel insurance company known as GESA Assistance, Groupe Européen S.A.  In addition, I also worked as a Certified Legal and Medical Interpreter and Translator, Illinois Notary Public in Cook County, at the Industrial Commission with Action  Translation Bureau managed by Joseph Raudonis in Palos Heights, and also for Carmen Kenny and Associates based in Arlington Heights, Cook County; plus I travelled and commuted by car, train, and Metra for Interpreting and Translation assignments in DuPage County, Kane County, Lake County, McHenry County, LaSalle County, Will County, DeKalb County, Kendall County, throughout the state of Illinois, USA.

Previously, during 1990, I had responded to a job advertising after I found a Help Wanted job posted in the Chicago newspaper for Diplomatic Languages Services looking for bilingual Spanish, French, and Portuguese interpreters and translators when Elizabeth Degnan was the Director at the DLS headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia.  Elizabeth Degnan assigned me to work as certified Spanish interpreter and translator for the Dirksen Federal Building with a Special Agent in Charge at the Federal Bureau of Investigation office which used to be located in the same federal court building facility.  Also, I was assigned Spanish translation for Audiotape Transcripts into English which were to be typed and forwarded by mail and/or facsimile to DLS in Virginia.

In addition, transcribed, translated certified and notarized audio-cassette recordings from Spanish into English, wordprocessing transcripts for Diplomatic Language Services.

 

After I completed the interpreting and translation assignment for Diplomatic Languages Services in October 1991, I began to look for additional work and another job.  I found a Help Wanted job listing posted by the U.S. Department of Labor in Chicago, Illinois USA.

 

Twenty-two (22) years ago, during 1991-1992, I was hired as a certified medical claims examiner, analyst, by the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workman’s Compensation, on the 8th Floor of the Kluczynski Building, across from the Dirksen Federal Building. While I worked full-time as a federal employee at the U.S. DOL, OWCP Office, the first week of October 1991, I was injured, harassed, and abused during the course of employment, after 5:00 PM; since then, I have become an Illinois Victim of Crime because I worked for Richard Kadus, Phyllis Crane, Shelene Turner, Joan Rosel, Thom M. Sheridan and other federal employees reviewing and adjudicating fellow federal employees claims for the Office of Workman’s Compensation in Chicago, Illinois.

January 1991 – December 1992

I was hired by Richard Kadus, Director, and Phyllis Crane, his Assistant Director at the U.S. Department of Labor as a Certified Medical Examiner Analyst, Adjudicator, Congressional Liaison for former Senator Paul Simon and Secretary of Labor Lynn Martin, Assistant Tom Markey, worked with Unit 3 Joan Rosel, Unit 2 Shelene Turner, and Unit 1 Thom Sheridan as a federal employee adjudicating workman’s compensation claims filed by federal employees and military personnel at the Rock Island Arsenal injured during the course of employment and government operations.

During January 1991, when I was working full-time for the U.S. Department of Labor, OWCP Office, I was trained and hired to review federal employees’ medical claims for work injuries suffered during the course of federal employment for adjudication, medical treatment, rehabilitation, vocational training, and a recommended monetary award.

A few months later, during the first week of October 1991, after the visit of the former U.S. DOL Secretary Lynn Martin to the DOL Chicago Office, the Supervisor for Unit 2, Shelene Turner had returned from a two-week vacation touring Rome, Italy. Then, other federal employees like Anita Freeney and Lois Ware in Unit 2, also wanted to go on vacation and take their leave of absence immediately; so they started transferring their assigned OWCP claim files to the desk of Gardenia C. Hung for additional review, adjudication, and awarding, leaving several tall, high stacking files from their end of the office to the other side by the window cubicles where I was sitting. At the end of the day, Anita Freeney started screaming at me, shouting that I had to take all her pending federal employees’ OWCP incomplete and unfinished, harassing me while I was at my office cubicle desk, after Shelene Turner, the Supervisor, had gone home for the day—since I was staying after 5 PM, working extra hours without any compensation, leave of absence or vacation time off.

Then, Anita Freeney ran to Richard Kadus’ office, when the latter came out and started verbally reprimanding Gardenia C. Hung because of the former’s federal OWCP case loads and stacks, incomplete and undone, files stacked high on the medical claims examiner’s desk because Anita Freeney wanted to go on vacation, instead of continuing to work on her OWCP case loads—when it was not Gardenia C. Hung’s fault. Suddenly, Richard Kadus started abusing Gardenia C. Hung to force her to take some white pills he had and afterwards, injecting her right thumb with a drug from a hypodermic needle to paralyze her right wrist and hand, and marking her white shirt with blue ink marking a cross. As a Victim of Crime, I was abused and drugged by Richard Kadus and Anita Freeney at the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workman’s Compensation. Consequently, I had to be hospitalized for three (3) months at Rush St. Luke Presbyterian Hospital next to the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle Campus.

This federal incident also caused me a problem with my former employer, Jose Poquet, who was then the Executive Director of Premier GESA Assistance Groupe Européen, a travel emergency medical insurance network for North America, the Caribbean, Central and South America.

While I was hospitalized at Rush St. Luke Presbyterian Hospital because of the U.S. DOL OWCP Office abuse and induced drug injection on my right thumb, I was also injured and kicked by a security staff man at the hospital who abused me and caused an extended hospitalization which resulted in the loss of my job during January 1992. Richard Kadus would not let me return to work at the U.S. DOL OWCP Office when Illinois Senator Paul Simon was involved with the federal workman’s compensation office at the Kluczynski Federal Building.

Even when I filed a Complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor, Annabelle T. Lockhart denied my claim for compensation and lied about the circumstances involving abuse of my person at the OWCP Office in Chicago, Illinois. U.S. DOL OWCP has not contacted or mailed any notifications to me as an Illinois Victim of Crime, thus denying me constitutional crime victims’ rights to date during 2013.

There is a Centennial Crisis at the U. S. Department of Labor when I have become an Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes and Violence Against Women, denied Civil Procedure, Civil Rights, and Due Process by Law since I worked for the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workman’s Compensation for the General Services Administration at the Kluczynski Building, 230 S. Dearborn St. in Chicago, Illinois  60604 in the United States of America.
