Campanari, Andrea

Andrea Campanari

Andrea Campanari, age 33, went missing one week after the birth of her first child. Her husband, Juan Ordonez, a student at the Kellogg School of Management, quickly organized a search party and posted notices on the campuses of universities in the Chicago area. Sadly, Campanari’s body was found in the bathroom of a Chicago restaurant. Suffering from postpartum psychosis, she had apparently stabbed herself multiple times. She died on February 27, 2004. Her son, Joaquin, survives.
