- As Rev. Donald Nevins brought the funeral mass of Chicago Police Detective Robert Soto to a close Tuesday, the quiet was interrupted by a police car's blaring siren, a fitting punctuation to a service honoring the 23-year veteran slain last week.
Police officers in formal dress, including Supt. Jody Weis, and Soto's friends and relatives filled the pews of St. Francis of Assisi Church on the Near West Side Tuesday to pay tribute to Soto's service and easygoing spirit.
Outside the courtroom, Austin's aunt, Sharon White, said police arrested the wrong man.
"My thing is, let's find out the truth," White told reporters after the bond hearing. "Don't just assume or just pick somebody 'cause you want it over with. . . . My nephew didn't do it."
