A trust has been created for the children of an attorney who was killed by her husband last week.

Mary Jane Frisby, 44, a former Barnes & Thornburg partner, was found dead in her Brownsburg home by police Aug. 26 hours after her husband, David, climbed atop a downtown Indianapolis parking garage and committed suicide.

The trust for Sam Frisby and Cassandra (Casey) Frisby, has been set up at The National Bank of Indianapolis, 107 N. Pennsylvania St., Indianapolis, IN 46204. All donations should be made payable to "Trust for the Children of Mary Jane Vincent Frisby."

A first-generation American of British parents, Mary Jane Frisby graduated summa cum laude from Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis in 2000. She started that same year at Barnes & Thornburg, where she worked in the intellectual property group. She left the law firm Aug. 20 to start a new position as an IP-focused general counsel at Cummins.

In addition to her two children, Frisby is survived by her parents Geoffrey and Adele Vincent; sister, Wendy Stoll; nephew, Ben Stoll; niece, Lucy Stoll; and several relatives in England, Scotland, Canada, and New Zealand. She was preceded in death by her brother, Christopher Vincent.

A private service will be Sept. 2, 2010, followed by a graveside service Sept. 4, 2010, at Pleasant Hill Cemetery near Murphysboro, IL. Arrangements were handled by Leppert Mortuary, Nora Chapel.

  1. Such things are no more elections than those in the late, unlamented Soviet Union.

  2. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  3. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  4. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  5. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.
