- Madison Pruitt, the 6-year-old girl who was held up as a hero last week by Interim Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson for her struggle in fighting muscle cancer, died Sunday.
Her death hit Sgt. Ernest Spradley and the rest of the officers of the Gresham District police station, two blocks from Madison’s South Side home, especially hard.
Condolences to her family and the 006 District.
