Chilling messages to slain girl's parents recalled in murder trial

The day after his 14-year-old daughter was murdered inside his family’s Indian Head Park home, John O’Laughlin called his daughter’s voice mail.

“I just wanted to hear her voice,” O’Laughlin told jurors Wednesday at the trial of John Wilson Jr., who is charged with murder in the death of Kelli O’Laughlin after she walked in on someone burglarizing the home on Oct. 27, 2011.

Later in the day, a series of cruel texts were sent to Kelli’s mother, Brenda O’Laughlin.

“What, Brenda?” the first text read, followed a few minutes later by “Love your pic,” Brenda O’Laughlin said from the witness stand.

"About an hour later, another text came from Kelli’s phone: “‘She wanted me to tell you something before I killed her,’” Brenda O’Laughlin said, recalling the message.

"And it continued for another hour or so, as the unknown tormentor told Brenda he thought he was in love with her and then threatened to destroy the phone if she did not respond.

"Prosecutors say that phone helped lead them to Wilson, who had spent 17 of the previous 20 years in prison. He was arrested on Nov. 2, 2011 near a CTA Red Line station on Chicago’s South Side after an intense manhunt.

"In his opening statement to the jury, Assistant State’s Attorney Guy Lisuzzo said investigators began tracking the GPS signal for both Wilson’s personal phone and Kelli’s phone, and noticed that wherever one phone went, the other was with it.

"By the time he was arrested, Wilson no longer had the teenager’s phone but still had his own and was worried it would tie him to the girl’s murder, Lisuzzo said.

“He called an individual from the LaGrange police department and asked them to come get his phone,” Lisuzzo said.

“During the course of the conversation, he said something that showed he knew how bad his phone was for him,” Lisuzzo said. “He said, 'Come get my ... phone — it has everywhere I've been.' It shows he was in Indian Head Park killing Kelli O'Laughlin.”

"Prosecutors alleged that while he was ransacking an upstairs bedroom at around 3:40 p.m., O’Laughlin returned home from Lyons Township High School, where she was a freshman.

“He could have just run out of the home. He doesn't,” said Lisuzzo, describing the crime. “It would end with a knife being plunged into her body many times. It would end with her lying in a pool of blood in her home.”

"When he did flee out a back window after killing the girl, he left behind a knit cap that contained DNA which later linked Wilson to the crime, the prosecutor said.

"Ultimately, [defense attorney] Carroll said authorities will not be able to show his client was in the small suburb.

“There will never be any evidence that John Wilson Jr. was ever in Indian Head Park — not just on that day, but ever,” he said.

Two Hurt In Crash After Police Shooting, Chase On South Side

September 3, 2014 3:45 PM

"CHICAGO (CBS) – Two people were injured Wednesday morning, when their car crashed and flipped over as they were fleeing police officers who fired shots when the suspects allegedly tried to run them over.

"A 911 call came in around 10:30 a.m. regarding a suspicious vehicle in an alley near 79th Street and Saginaw Avenue...

"Fraternal Order of Police spokesman Pat Camden said a uniformed police officer was in her squad car nearby at 79th and Exchange Avenue, when she spotted a red Ford Mustang matching the description from the 911 call.

“Gets out of her car with weapon in hand, orders the occupants in the vehicle to get out. Instead of getting out, they throw the car in reverse, and they’re heading right at her. She fires a couple of shots at the car, hitting the car at that point, we believe,” Camden said.

"According to Camden, there was a train coming at the time, and the officer had nowhere to go when the suspects tried to run her over, so she shot at them to protect herself. After she shot at the suspects, they fled west on 79th Street, Camden said..."

“There’s another squad car that starts chasing the red Mustang. At about 79th and Constance, the offenders hit another vehicle, lose control of their vehicle, the Mustang flips over, both offenders in the car are injured,” Camden said."

Rogue ‘Cell Towers’ Can Intercept Your Data; At Least One Found In Chicago

September 3, 2014 1:02 PM

"CHICAGO (CBS) — So-called rogue cell phone towers, the type that can intercept your mobile calls and data, are cropping up all over the United States, including here in Chicago, according to a company that specializes in developing highly secure mobile phones.

"More cell phone users, who fear their information could be at risk, are turning to high-end secure mobile devices. As a result, it is become easier for them to detect the presence of these interceptor devices.

"The origin of these devices that disguise themselves as cell phone towers is not known.

"CBS 2 security analyst Ross Rice, a former FBI agent, said it’s likely being used illegally.

“I doubt that they are installed by law enforcement as they require a warrant to intercept conversations or data and since the cell providers are ordered by the court to cooperate with the intercept, there really would be no need for this,” Rice said.

“Most likely, they are installed and operated by hackers, trying to steal personal identification and passwords.”

"Les Goldsmith, the CEO of ESD America, which makes secure cell phones, said law enforcement, with a warrant, can use interceptor devices if they need information in real time, or if they don’t want a cellular network to know what they are tracking.

"These devices don’t look like a tower, but are rather electronic boxes and laptops that trick a regular phone that it’s part of an actual cellular network..."

Two well-known names unload on ‘anti-gun billionaires’

September 3, 2014

"Two well-known writers, including a New York Times best-selling author writing in the National Review online, and a popular actor and author, have unloaded on anti-gun billionaires including Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates yesterday and today, for pushing a Washington state gun control measure that now has the political Left turning hypocrisy into an art form.

"For gun rights activists who have been fighting the proverbial “good fight” in the Evergreen State, the double drubbing could perhaps not have come at a better time. Their spirits lifted yesterday by gun rights advocate Alan Gottlieb’s double-dog dare to Gates and Bloomberg to a two-on-one debate regarding 18-page Initiative 594, today’s criticism of billionaires buying votes should liven things up considerably. Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms had challenged Gates individually last week.

"Frank Miniter, author of the recently-released “The Future of the Gun,” noted that I-594 “would make illegal so much of what law-abiding gun owners do as they shoot socially and go hunting that the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs now opposes Initiative 594.” This column first broke word of that opposition in late June, but it has just recently gotten any significant mainstream media publicity, suggesting that there has been something of a news blackout on the story...."

+++++ Justice Dept. to probe Ferguson police force
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. this week will launch a broad civil rights investigation into the Ferguson, Mo., Police Department, according to two federal law enforcement officials.

The investigation .... will be conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division and follow a process similar to that used to investigate complaints of profiling and the use of excessive force....
~~~~~ snip ~~~~~
The federal officials said the probe will look not only at Ferguson but also at other police departments in St. Louis County. Some, like Ferguson, are predominantly white departments serving majority-African-American communities....

Wow! Never saw this coming (eye roll).

I have enjoyed reading And commenting here on SCC for a couple of months - think it is one of the best sources for the real, uncensored crime and policing news based in our great, but crime and corruption plagued City of Chicago.

My family has been in and around Chicago before the 1894 World's Fair. My grandfather fled the Bolshevik revolution and Russian Civil War (he fought in the White Army), he was a Professor and Dean of Students at the University of Chicago in Hyde Park from the 1930s through the early 1970s. I've spent half my life in Kenwood, Hyde Park dodging street crime and fighting assorted Leftist idiots. I was 7 years old during the 1968 civil war here and strongly took the Chicago Police Side against Abbie Hoffman, Bill Ayers scum.

I am now very much in the fight, opposing cultural Marxism , 3rd World immigration, Black Liberation Theology, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Federal Hate Crime/thought crime persecutions, now the latest racial hate crime hoax in Ferguson MO.

I completely understand that active and retired Chicago Police here need to maintain their anonymity lest they lose their jobs, suffer persecution from Eric Holder's Injustice Department. I/we with the Council of Chicago Conservatives are in a better position to publicly oppose the crime and corruptions that plague our city, nation.

If it is OK with the SCC blog admins, I/we would like to post Council of Chicago Conservative comments here, advocating strictly legal activism in the real world (phone and letter writing campaigns, literature distributions, small demos etc) I/we would like to pattern the CoCC on effective education and lobbying groups like NumbersUSA that has led the fight to block another huge illegal alien amnesty, secure our borders etc.

Thank you and God bless all the great people here at SCC

Woman says she was trampled by teens at Little Italy festival

"A Chicago woman in her 80s sustained fractures to her pelvis and wrist after she was "knocked down and trampled" by a group of runners at a street festival last month, according to a lawsuit filed in Cook County court.

"Rose De Leonardis was attending the Festival Italiana Little Italy gathering in the Little Italy neighborhood last month when she was knocked down by runners from Whitney Young High School "when they ran uncontrollably through the (street festival)."

"She was knocked over, according to the lawsuit filed Friday, and suffered multiple fractures to her pelvis and wrist.

"De Leonardis is suing the organizer of the festival, the University Village Association, for negligence. In the lawsuit, she alleges that the association failed to provide adequate crowd control and security and to implement procedures to allow for safe passage through the festival..."

Who at the high school chose this route? How about "safe passage AROUND the festival?"

Afternoon police family, need honest opinion to a question.
I turn 55 in Nov, have 22 years on, been a Sgt for a few years, I am 162 on the Lt's list.
Thinking of pulling the plug and retiring in March/2015.

I wanted to wait a few more years or atleast until they pull down the current Lt List.

My question...Is it worth the wait? I believe LT's are at full capacity and they are not going to make more anytime soon.

I was told they are at 122 on the list, so I am 40 or so out.

I hate to leave then 3 months later they promote from the list.
Anyone have any info on future LT promotions?

Yes, that was more than one question. Thank in advance.

To the sergeant w 22 years - you have the ability to retire with full health care until the sergeant contract expires in 2016. If you make lieutenant before the contract expires, great.

"Since we switched to Comcast phone service to get a bundle discount we have been getting at least twice the amount of 800 calls for everything from donating your car to a deal on heating/cooling. The past few days we keep getting hang ups on our answering machine from a Washington DC # 202 800 5597."

Some of the incoming numbers come up like "000-000-0003" on your caller ID.

Sign up with the National Do Not Call registry. Doesn't stop it all but it helps quite a bit. All they want is your phone number, no name or address goes with it.

Yeah, like that "Illinois Police Association." They like to work head games on what they think are scared old people.

For the street sign dedication on Tuesday, we wear class A with blouse or the summer uniform?

Hey 22 year Sgt. I wish you the best of luck but be certain all of your financial ducks are in a row before pulling the pin. Is your mortgage paid off? Are your kids out of school (or the house) and not costing you anything? Do you have a decent amount ($500,000) in deferred comp? I left as a Sgt. with 25 years on about ten years ago, pension not enough by any means. If they eliminate the cost-of-living increase you will be in serious trouble. Think this one out very carefully, there is no turning back. You may end up having to find another job (not easy) and go back to 2 weeks vacation a year. Good luck.

Googled the aforementioned wgn piece about the St Sabina summer job kids going unpaid. The Google link went to a page that said "Oops! That page can't be found", so it looks like it's already been taken down.

Funny, the Google cache still has the story. Read and copy it from here, before it too is sanitized.

I have enjoyed reading And commenting here on SCC for a couple of months - think it is one of the best sources for the real, uncensored crime and policing news based in our great, but crime and corruption plagued City of Chicago.

My family has been in and around Chicago before the 1894 World's Fair. My grandfather fled the Bolshevik revolution and Russian Civil War (he fought in the White Army), he was a Professor and Dean of Students at the University of Chicago in Hyde Park from the 1930s through the early 1970s. I've spent half my life in Kenwood, Hyde Park dodging street crime and fighting assorted Leftist idiots. I was 7 years old during the 1968 civil war here and strongly took the Chicago Police Side against Abbie Hoffman, Bill Ayers scum.

I am now very much in the fight, opposing cultural Marxism , 3rd World immigration, Black Liberation Theology, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Federal Hate Crime/thought crime persecutions, now the latest racial hate crime hoax in Ferguson MO.

I completely understand that active and retired Chicago Police here need to maintain their anonymity lest they lose their jobs, suffer persecution from Eric Holder's Injustice Department. I/we with the Council of Chicago Conservatives are in a better position to publicly oppose the crime and corruptions that plague our city, nation.

If it is OK with the SCC blog admins, I/we would like to post Council of Chicago Conservative comments here, advocating strictly legal activism in the real world (phone and letter writing campaigns, literature distributions, small demos etc) I/we would like to pattern the CoCC on effective education and lobbying groups like NumbersUSA that has led the fight to block another huge illegal alien amnesty, secure our borders etc.

Thank you and God bless all the great people here at SCC

How American of you. Your family fled persecution,but due to your great American assimilation you now espouse the same hate and bigotry that caused your family to flee Russia. Your father would find your beliefs...interesting.

I might be off base here but if a 50 yo and 43 yo couple cannot put $8k together, should they be having children?

I don't espouse hate and bigotry.

I support positive American, Chicago people, culture, laws etc.

I oppose Chicagoans 100,000 plus gang members as documented in the Chicago Crime Commission's Gang book (2012).

I oppose cultural Marxism, Communism, Bolshevism, Frankfort School, SDS, SPLC, LaRasa, Eric a Holder, Sharpton, Al Qaeda the same as my solid a Russian Grandfather, assimilated American Grandfather once did.

Nothing much has changed. I know what side I was on in St. Petersberg Russia 919, Chicago 1968' now. I'm on the good side, opposing evil.

I hope that answers any of your questions.

Sgt you said a mouthful. I'm a retired detective who had over 35 years on wont say how many more, and everyone said why did you stay. I paid off my mortgage, paid for kids education and contributed to deferred until the day I left. Now I dont have to work, have been getting my COLAS and everything is great. Just turned 70 and will be forced to start talking minimum withdrawals.
All I'm saying is what you are saying, dont be so anxious to get out. And those extra years I stayed were pretty good.

Afternoon police family, need honest opinion to a question.
I turn 55 in Nov, have 22 years on, been a Sgt for a few years, I am 162 on the Lt's list.
Thinking of pulling the plug and retiring in March/2015.

I wanted to wait a few more years or atleast until they pull down the current Lt List.

My question...Is it worth the wait? I believe LT's are at full capacity and they are not going to make more anytime soon.

I was told they are at 122 on the list, so I am 40 or so out.

I hate to leave then 3 months later they promote from the list.
Anyone have any info on future LT promotions?

If you wanted to stay a few more lists, you should. See what happens with the list. Worse that can happen is you collect a nice salary and should be maxing out defered and you pension will increase.
One thing does bother me. You say you are 55 and a sgt on the CPD. Yet you come on the blog and ask if anyone has any info on the future of the Lts. list. Do you really believe anyone on this blog has any idea and would you stake your future retirement on anything anyone here would say about the list.
I can tell you one thing for sure. Tonight the mayor and the supt dont know whats going to happen with the list and in a few months both MAY be gone so even if they did it wouldn't matter.

He gets it. You, incredibly, do not.

...and to the PPO who asked about the dedication ceremony: wear a t-shirt and shorts for all anyone cares. Just glad you get it....and are going.
