It shouldn’t take ten years to catch a nog who murdered three White women and two other random women.
Ten years after five women were brutally slain inside the Lane Bryant store in Tinley Park, police have released a new image of the suspect and enhanced audio of a 911 call in hopes of finally solving the case.
Tinley Park Police Chief Steve Neubauer said a new 3-D modeled image of the suspect was released on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the slayings on purpose, because he knows people have the most interest in the cold case this time of year.
The new image of the suspect has been hung inside the Tinley Park police station, and was created based on the original eyewitness account of the suspect in 2008. Authorities used facial identification technology to make the original sketches of the suspect more lifelike.
“Time goes by, but we’ve worked on it steadily for 10 years; continue to work on it. There’s five women that need us to clear this up,” Neubauer said.
On Feb. 2, 2008, the gunman entered the Lane Bryant store at 191st and Harlem and announced a robbery. He took the store manager, an employee, and four customers to the back, and shot them all.
Store manager Rhoda McFarland, 42, of Joliet; Connie Woolfolk, 37, of Flossmoor; Sarah Szafranski, 22, of Oak Forest; Carrie Hudek Chiuso, 33, of Frankfort; and Jennifer Bishop, 34, of South Bend, were all killed. A sixth woman was also shot and wounded.
