- The woman found with a knife through her chest Friday in Lincoln Park does not appear to have been a victim of criminal sexual assault or robbery, police said. The ongoing death investigation had not been declared a homicide as of Friday evening.
"There was no sign of a struggle," Chicago Police Officer John Mirabelli said late Friday afternoon. "Right now detectives are interviewing friends and family to see if the victim (previously) demonstrated signs of distress."
She had a knife through her chest. A knife that was left embedded in her body. Is there any reason this could not conceivably be declared a homicide? Seriously. We'd really like to know. We've heard a few war stories about mentally disturbed individuals who had the superhuman strength and wherewithal to actually push a knife into their body, but it has been awhile.
