Two Dead Wives

Paula Kalosky

One February morning in 1999, beloved sister, wife, and mother, Paula Kalosky, is found dead in her home with a single bullet to her head. Her husband, Robert Kalosky, tells police he was out running errands and, upon returning home, discovered her body. Paula’s death is quickly ruled a suicide. Her brother, John, rejects the ruling, knowing that Paula would never take her life—she loved her young son and she was looking forward to her upcoming college graduation. John theorizes that Paula discovered Robert’s affair with their friend, Sandra, and knew that in a divorce, he would lose custody of their son and access to Paula’s finances. Could this have been a motive for murder? Robert is never arrested and marries Sandra soon after Paula’s death. John finally gets the medical examiner to change Paula’s manner of death to “undetermined” but no investigation ensues. Then in 2018, 20 years after his sister’s death, John is shocked to learn that Sandra Kalosky, Robert’s third wife, has been found dead in the very same home where Paula died. Could this be just a tragic coincidence?

  1. Felix Vasquez

    I hate to sound like I’m victim blaming, but she found out he lied about who he was and that he was married. She should have had more sense than to stay with the guy. It’s unfortunate that so many women meet their ends because they don’t heed red flags. It’s also unfortunate that there are so many terrible men out there who prey on these women.


  2. Erica

    He lied about his identity in 1980.
    He married the babysitter who would be significantly younger than him
    And 2 out of 3 wives die violently. No coincidence, he did it!
    Did he have an addiction? Was he still a vending tech? I can’t wrap my head around how he could kill them for an amount of money that is not very significant.
    Also, what are the police missing that would give them solid evidence to charge him with murder!


  3. Someone

    That’s my home town. Bob Kalosky murdered them both.


  4. Taylor Kristine Graham

    I wish all murdered women had a brother like John, who will stop at nothing to find the truth. His last line about seeing his sister again made me cry.


  5. Michael Rios

    What about Robert’s first wife? Maybe she wanted revenge for being divorced for Paula. I mean it’s my theory if she may have been following him since.


  6. Nicole Saxbury

    I really hope the family can finally get some answers that they so much so deserve it is just going to take just one person that might have information to come forward
