Deadliest July in a Decade
- Trinyce L. Sanders-Wilson was a member of the Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church for more than 20 years. She was in the choir and worked with the children at the West Side church.
As she left Sunday services and crossed the street to her car over the weekend, her estranged husband walked up and shot her dead, authorities said. Then he killed himself.
Sanders-Wilson was among the last of the 65 people killed in Chicago in July, a toll that pushed the number of homicides in the city this year to nearly 400. The total for all of last year was 490.
HeyJackass.com has the city at 402, but that includes six that died in police related shootings. July averaged just over two-a-day killed, and the sweltering days of August are upon us. Gotta get that killing in before school starts.
