Former ICU TimesI ICU JournalI reporter Burger dead at 57
BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (10/28/08)--A former reporter for the Credit Union Times and Credit Union Journal, Carol Anne Burger, was found dead at home Friday, an apparent suicide, according to police. Burger, 57, died of a gunshot wound to the head. She was found by police outside her Boynton Beach, Fla., home, just hours after her former longtime partner, Jessica Kalish, was found stabbed to death in her car (Palm Beach Post Oct. 26). Burger had reported Kalish missing on Thursday. In addition to working as a reporter for Credit Union Journal, Burger was employed as a special assignments report for Credit Union Times. She also contracted public relations work for the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS), and the National Association of Credit Union Service Organizations (NACUSO). At the time of her death, Burger was writing a blog for a political website, the Huffington Post, contributing to its "Off the Bus" presidential election campaign coverage, said the Post. "Carol Anne was very much a believer in the philosophy and mission of credit unions but she covered and wrote about the movement with the objectivity her profession required," said Mark Wolff, CUNA senior vice president of communications. "She was a dedicated and tenacious journalist who will be fondly remembered and sorely missed. This is indeed a tragedy."
