SCC Holmes

  • After receiving an anonymous tip this week that her son's body was near the tennis courts in Avalon Park on the South Side, Bonnette Jernigan and her family set out to find him.

    "We called police. About 10 cars came out, but they couldn't find my son," she said. "They told me they would look again once the sun came up if I wanted."
Ten cars - we've been on shooting scenes that didn't get a ten-car response.
  • Jernigan's ordeal started Dec. 22 after her son went missing from the Far South Side. Iaron Brooks, 23, had gotten a ride from his uncle and a group of unknown men, Jernigan said. It wasn't until Wednesday, when the Cook County medical examiner's office determined Brooks died of multiple gunshot wounds, that what had happened to him started to come into focus.

    After Brooks missed Christmas with his 3-year-old daughter and an appointment to get rehired at Wal-Mart, Jernigan already knew something was wrong, she said.
So he's been missing six weeks....after a ride with an uncle and a bunch of unknown folks (or people). You think that Uncle has suddenly become a person-of-interest?
  • About 4 p.m. Jan. 5, someone called police and reported seeing a body in the bushes at Avalon Park, but when canine units were called to the scene, no body was found.
That's one search - for a body now:
  • In the days after the initial search at Avalon Park, Jernigan's relief dissipated when she was told her son might be in the Auburn Park lagoon near 79th Street and Normal Avenue.

    "The water was frozen, so there was only so much that could be done. But we never gave up. We went to the lagoon with chisels and tried to punch holes, hoping something would float up," Jernigan said.
Another search, though foolhardy, by the family. But now they're definitely getting information from someone somewhere that they aren't looking for a live person any more. But no one in the 'hood will give the police definitive info to locate said body - "no snitching" and all that.
  • Weeks went by, and there was still no word about Brooks' whereabouts, until one of Jernigan's sons received an anonymous tip Monday, saying his youngest brother's body was near the tennis court by the abandoned tracks near Avalon Park, she said.

    The tipster said he overheard a group of kids talking about Brooks' body being left in the area near the tracks, Jernigan said.

    The family contacted the police, and Jernigan said at least 10 police cars came out.
Very specific, but again, don't call the police. Call the family and have them call the police so as to distance yourself from actually snitching:
  • When the police left, Brooks' uncle walked through the area searching for his nephew.

    "He hollered out, 'Bonnie, Bonnie, he's here. ...I feel his spirit, he's here,' " she said. But they found nothing.
An uncle....where have we heard that before? Oh yeah, he accepted a ride from an "uncle."
  • The next day, the family set out once again searching for Brooks. About 20 minutes in, Jernigan heard her brother yell, "He's here ... we got him."
Mom's brother found the body.....that would make him....an uncle? Golly, and was this the uncle who gave him a ride? And was he the one who "[felt] his spirit"? And the one accepting the "anonymous" calls? We're going to bet a lot of coincidence are coming to the foreground right about now.
  • "I'm so furious. We gave (the police) every clue we had, but we had to find him," she said.
Whoa whoa whoa....where the hell did that come from? Even the Great Sherlock Holmes didn't see that coming out of left field. Nice gratuitous shot at the police to close out the article, as if we killed him or something.

If the cops would have found him on the night you called, would it make it any better that your son was found dead by the cops?
She's more pissed off about the cops who tried to help than she's pissed about her son's death.
Maybe she's trying to cause a distraction for old boy who found him.

What's just as bad, is that the common man/woman who get their information from the daily news papers are so narrow minded that they believe what people like "Bonnie Jerniggan" threw out there. Blame the police any chance you get. It's a culture.

The story changed after you wrote yours. The uncle is now cleared but all those unknown men remain. But he got out of that car, supposedly.

"South Side. Iaron Brooks, 23, had gotten a ride from a group of unknown men, Jernigan said. A family friend later spotted Brooks inside of the car with the men in the area of 79th Street and Avalon Avenue, and made him get out of the vehicle.

According to Brooks' mother, it was the last time he was seen. Earlier information given to the Tribune that Brooks was given a ride by an uncle was not correct."

Sounds like the scene from the movie Stand By Me. Dead kid down by the railroad tracks. Let me tell you how this went down. Uncle had the body stashed, people started talking, uncle had to move it and had to wait for the right time, hence he found it because he knew where it was.

The intrepid journalists in Chicago strike again: .....
>>>> Earlier information given to the Tribune that Brooks was given a ride by an uncle was not correct. <<<<
Yeah Trib, blame it on an earlier source. Ever think of maybe getting more than one source to begin with?

re: Sherlock Holmes -- useless bits of information.
--- 1) In the sixty (60) stories, four (4) of which were novels, that Arthur Conan Doyle wrote between 1887 and 1927 about Sherlock Holmes, the well known phrase; 'Elementary my dear Watson', appears .... no place. And the word, 'Elementary' appears only seven (7) times. But you wouldn't know any of that if your Sherlock Holmes knowledge comes solely from the Basil Rathbone Holmes movies, it's almost like that's all he says.

--- 2) Many of you might know this, being police and all (no offense meant by that). Sherlock Holmes is the 'father' of modern Forensics. If you read the first Homes story, 'A Study in Scarlet' (1887), you see many of Holmes methods are still used today. That was pretty radical stuff for 1887.

--- 3) Sherlock Holmes has a 'smarter brother'. His name is Mycroft Holmes.

--- 4) If you want to watch the best film-video versions of Sherlock Holmes which are true to what Conan Doyle wrote, find the four Granada TV Series 1984 to 1994 that starred Jeremy Brett. I've read every Holmes story (as orig published) written by Arthur Conan Doyle. When I finished I watched the 1st Episode of the Granada TV series starring Brett. The dialogue was WORD FOR WORD per the book. And so was Brett's inflection, the tone, and his body movements. It was so good it was almost scary.

Well, that's it boys and girls. Have fun using the Holmes info. It does come in handy if you play Trivial Pursuit.

Watson: "How can that be so? We have never encountered anyone else so nefarious."

Holmes: "That is the beauty of it all Watson. I am firmly convinced that Professor Moriarty was not complicit in this crime. Furthermore, I believe that other evil forces have tried to frame him."
