Kidnapped Child Found
- A desperate four-hour search for a kidnapped baby ended joyfully when Officer Naomi Gibson heard a muffled cry in a gangway.
Gibson and a team of officers were frantically looking for the 1-month-old girl throughout the Grand Crossing District on the South Side on Tuesday morning.
At 10:54 a.m. — with the temperature hovering at 32 degrees — Gibson heard a cry coming from a gangway in the 6800 block of South Ridgeway.
She spotted a white garbage bag full of pink baby clothes. Then she saw the baby sitting in a car seat, covered with a pink blanket.
And why was the child kidnapped?
- Williams allegedly took the child to pretend the baby girl belonged to her and her boyfriend, who had recently been arrested and faced a bond hearing on a felony drug possession charge.
She’s accused of planning to use the child to evoke sympathy from a judge to get a lower bond for her boyfriend, but then abandoned the scheme — and the baby.
And when it all fell apart, she just left the baby in a gangway, denied having anything to do with the child, and refused to assist the police in any way, shape or form to return the infant. We wish we could say we were shocked, but we can't. Let's see if Mope-rah can wring a story out of this one. We're sure it's all the fault of the police at some level.
An excellent job by the officers responding and searching until locating the child.
