  Heroin Factor In Death Of Woman Found In Parking Lot  
  May 4, 2017 Edition  
      Boardman police have charged a 31-year-old man with abuse of a corpse and failure to report a crime in the death of 48-year-old Billie Jo Beshara, of 1411 St. Albans Dr.
      Beshara’s lifeless body was found in her Cadillac Escalade on Tues., Mar. 7 shortly after 7:00 a.m. in a parking lot behind Niccolini’s Restaurant on Boardman-Poland Rd.
      Charged in the matter is Steven James Schaefer, of 858 Indianola Rd.
      On Sat., Mar. 4, Beshara’s husband of 18 years, William R. Beshara, reported to Boardman police that he had not seen his wife for 24 hours.
      Mr. Beshara said she left their residence on Mar. 3 about 9:30 a.m., leaving his wife money to buy groceries. He told police when he returned home later that evening, the money was still on the kitchen counter.
      “Mr. Beshara stated Billie has an alcohol problem and regularly goes out of Friday nights and returns hours later, usually intoxicated,” Ptl. Nick Newland reported, adding the husband told him it wasn’t unusual for Beshara to go out, but it was unusual for her to go out “for so long.”
      Police believe that Schaefer spent the day of Mar. 3 with Mrs. Beshara, during which time they bought narcotics and injected heroin. She overdosed and died.
      Police believe that Schaefer waited until dark and ‘drove around’ for several hours in the Escalade with Beshara’s body until deciding to drop her off in the parking lot of Nicolinni’s.
      Phone records help police locate Schaefer.
