More On the Tinley Park Shootings...

A 33-year-old woman who is the sole survivor of Saturday's Lane Bryant killings says the victims were all tied up and shot at close range in the back of the head; she survived because somehow the bullet went through her neck instead of her head. She placed the 911 call.

The woman, identified by a Kentucky newspaper only by her first name Martha, is a Lane Bryant employee. Her parents moved from Illinois to Providence, Kentucky, and gave an interview to their local newspaper after speaking with their daughter by phone.
