River North Man Tried To Kill Woman With Tylenol, Prosecutors Say

Limbacher (inset) shoved handfuls of Tylenol down the woman's throat, prosecutors say | Chicago Police Dept
A former Boystown man has been charged with trying to kill a woman by forcing her to ingest Tylenol in his River North apartment.

Prosecutors say 44-year-old Shane Limbacher became angry with the woman on April 14, grabbed her by the throat and began punching her in the face.

He then tied the woman to a chair, cut her hair with a knife and told her that he was going to kill her before he “poured a handful of Tylenol down her throat” and forced her to drink water to wash the pills down, prosecutors alleged.

The woman later told investigators that Limbacher may have shoved over 70 pills down her throat during the attack.

A grand jury returned a 9-count true bill against Limbacher, who's charged with two counts of attempted murder; two counts of aggravated kidnapping; two counts of aggravated domestic battery - strangulation; one count of aggravated domestic battery; aggravated battery - toxic substance; and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, court records show.

Limbacher was returned to Chicago on a warrant after authorities found him in Jackson, Michigan, late last month. He’s being held without bail.

Expungement Fail

One month before the woman was allegedly attacked, Limbacher filed papers in an attempt to get an old battery charge removed from his otherwise clean record.

He was accused of striking a man inside a bar in the 3300 block of North Halsted in 2011, but the case was dropped after the victim failed to show up in court.

Limbacher filed for expungement on March 10 and the motion—almost guaranteed to succeed—was set for a hearing on May 25. Given recently-arisen circumstances, Judge Leroy K. Martin Jr struck the expungement motion.

  1. Question for the lawyers out there: Are expunged records admissible during the sentencing phase of a trial?

  2. Yes and no. The truth is it depends on a few factors.

  3. How can a source like this publish things that haven't found to be factual? Isn't he pressured innocent until guilty or is anything a women says taken as gold. With that said, be careful CWB, the only defense to defamation is truth. How can CWB Chicago know what really HAPPENED?

  6. 4 comments-

    1) DRUGS

    2) a grand jury reviewed this so it is not he said she said

    3) what's with the sexist "anything a women says taken as gold"

    4) this seems like another example of too many gays living in a fantasy world where societies laws don't apply.

  7. I'd agree with suspecting drugs. His group was part of the circuit boy and afterhours crowd. That crowd went away for a while but big eyed twitchy "dance" parties were all over IML weekend.

    What is wrong with dollar beers at Roscoes or throwing napkins in the air at Sidetrack?

  8. Shane had a successful business at the Merchandise Mart and dated Paul the owner of Scarlet for years. Quite a fall if it's true

  9. That makes sense. I have seen Paul and Shane on Facebook at Burning Man and other music fests that are all full of kids on Ecstasy and other stuff for days at a time. Some people never grow up. You will see plenty of examples during the next weekends of Pride.

  10. Anyone who knows Shane knows that he is smart, caring and despite some mistakes made in the past he is a good person and would never do this. And anyone who knows "the woman" knows that it's disgusting what lies and deceit that she is capable of. This woman has made these same accusations about numerous exs. What we have here is a case of a jealous, conniving, deceitful ex who will stop at nothing, and I mean nothing to ruin other people's lives because she feels wronged. Get the fuck out of here with this nonsense.

    1. Grand juries are not known for their nonsense.

    2. The grand jury looks at evidence, not taking someone's word. I'm pretty sure they are trained professionals.
      Who wouldn't charge somebody with multiple felonies without proof. Mr. Limbachers followers are going to be shocked and just how demented he is

    3. Anybody that truly knows Shane would have nothing but positive comments to say about his character. Although he is not perfect, I would be shocked to find out this story is accurate in ALL the details. This "woman" has manipulated countless situations in his life. She absolutely has a history of playing the victim, and she is far from a truthful person. She set out to ruin his life. She is no amateur.

    4. This guy is being held WITHOUT BAIL. That should tell you this is much more than a he said, she said. The court believes strongly that the allegations have heft.

      Delete
    5. He was gay pretending to be straight! He chose to tell people what he WANTED them to believe. Obviously he is a trusted source.

      Delete
    6. And that he is considered dangerous, there's a risk he will commit other crimes and he is flight risk.

      No bond also normally means its hard to pay for a good lawyer and hard to plan a good defense. That means a plea or years at county waiting for trial as things move 30 days at a time between appearances.

    7. Shane was with women way before he dated men, maybe he liked BOTH genders as MANY people do. What does ones sexuality have to do with being trustworthy? He dated "the woman" in this incident in high school. They reconnected later in life and she was FULLY aware he had dated men before their reconciliation. Shane has NEVER tried to hide it. Although I'm sure she would like people to believe she had no clue. If you want to talk about untrustworthy, deceitful, disgusting, disgraceful, acts the "woman" has a list longer than most. Let's add gold digger to it while we are at it.

  11. Ted Bundy worked as a volunteer on a suicide hot line at the same time as committing his crimes. Sociopaths are strange beings.

    The only questions that I have aren't on guilt or innocent is who will play "the woman" on the Lifetime movie and did "the woman" notice her boyfriend / husband was really gay?

  12. I know Shane personally. This truly does not sound like the guy I know and sincerely hope it is not true. That being said if it is.....all I'm asking for is justice to be carried out properly. This is extremely sad news indeed.

  13. First off-he dated "that woman" in high school, he was later in homosexual relationships indeed. He never denied it, or tried to hide it. She knew going into the marriage he had been with men. I've known both of them for years and she is lucky to not be in prison for her crimes. Shane did nothing but try and help her and make her a better person. All he got in return are these made up allegations. Trust me this is not her first rodeo, she will stop at nothing to ruin someone's life because she can not take rejection. Shane is a good person and this is such bullshit! I wouldn't want to be anywhere near "that psycho woman" when the karma bus comes to run her down. She is an evil, sadistic piece of shit, a liar, thief and master manipulator. I stand with shane 100% and anyone who says otherwise does not know him at all!!

    1. "Shane did nothing but try and help her and make her a better person" Because that's what marriage is all about, right? Fixing someone?

  14. "That woman" is a disgusting, vile, lying, gold digging, psychotic, manipulative, self absorbed, self serving criminal. Shane gave her way too many second chances, and when he finally decided he wanted nothing more to do with her, she concocted this absurd story. And she certainly knows just how many Tylenol to put in her system so it is traceable but not deadly!! Make no mistake, if she can't have shane, she'll see to it that no one can. She needs serious psychological help, and she should be locked up, not him. He never layed a finger on her, any injuries she had were self afflicted, it's not the first time she's pulled this stunt with the men in her life. So sad that shane has to endure this unjust treatment.

  15. Wow. Lots of sexism and victim shaming. They were married even though she is a vile, gold digging chemist and magician who out of the goodness of his heart gave her a hair cut. He then decided to take a vacation in scenic Jackson, Michigan, coincidentally the home of Michigan State Prison. He was probably there to visit other innocent inmates.

    I think a few of you may be on drugs too. Maybe you can end up together in the same cell block.

    Just wow
