Waupun Man Found Guilty in 1973 Murder

7/29/11 – A southeast Wisconsin man was found guilty yesterday of killing the daughter of an F-B-I agent in Arizona 38 years ago. 57-year-old William Zamastil of Waupun faces life-in-prison when he’s sentenced October fifth. Prosecutors said Zamastil may have abducted Leesa Jo Shaner from the airport in Tucson in May of 1973, while she was waiting to pick up her husband. Authorities said Shaner was raped, and her remains were found in a shallow grave in September of ’73 at Arizona’s Fort Huachuca. Investigators identified Zamastil as a suspect after he was sent to prison for the rape-and-murder of a Wisconsin woman in 1979. A federal grand jury indicted him in 2009 for Shaner’s murder.
