Police are searching for a man in the murder of Washington Park Mayor John Thornton. A man they had in custody early on in the investigation.
Unfortunately, while they suspected he might have committed the crime, it took weeks to get lab results and other evidence. That evidence was needed, I guess, to make the case strong enough for the State's Attorney to file charges.
In the meantime, Aaron Jackson has taken off. I asked ISP if they were second guessing their decision not to file charges earlier. They said no.
