CHICAGO (AP) –A special prosecutor will release to the public a report examining whether prosecutors or police impeded a 2004 investigation into a fatal fight involving the nephew of then-Chicago Mayor Richard Daley.Dan Webb’s office says the 162-page document will be released Tuesday morning.
21 year old David Koschman died days after hitting his head in a fight during a night of drinking.
Daley’s nephew, Richard J. Vanecko, pleaded guilty Friday to involuntary manslaughter. That short-circuited a planned trial and made it possible to unseal Webb’s 2013 report.
Webb’s mandate included determining if authorities mishandled the investigation.
After completing the report last year, Webb said charges related to the original investigation weren’t possible because the statute of limitations ran out. But he declined to say if he found investigators acted improperly.
The number of calls the Galesburg Fire Department responds to increases each year while the number of firefighters keeps going down.
