Remember that Vanecko investigation? How thorough it was and how all the bases were covered? How there wasn't even the hint of a political bent to the investigation? Guess what turned up after 8 years?
- Security surveillance video has turned up showing David Koschman a few hours before his drunken 2004 encounter with Richard J. “R.J.” Vanecko, the nephew of then-Mayor Richard M. Daley who’s charged with killing the 21-year-old Mount Prospect man, sources told the Chicago Sun-Times.
Last year, Ronald E. Yawger — originally the lead detective on Koschman’s homicide case — told the Sun-Times he was unaware any video existed. And the Chicago Police Department denied the newspaper’s request for video in March 2011 without explanation, neither confirming nor denying whether the police ever sought or found any tapes.
But now sources say investigators for special prosecutor Dan K. Webb have obtained a video showing Koschman and four of his friends entering and leaving a Division Street bar in the Rush Street nightlife district.
But this was "handled" appropriately at the time. Give us a fucking break. This is going to drag a whole bunch of people through the wringer.
