More details are emerging about the Tinley Park murders from this weekend. In addition to the five women who died, one woman was shot but survived and gave police a description of the gunman, who is still at large. Lane Bryant is offering $50,000 reward for information that leads to the shooter's arrest.
The mayor of Tinley Park has ordered the town's flags to fly at half-mast for the next five days, and an impromptu memorial has already sprung up outside the store. The victims have been identified as Sarah Szafranski, 22, of Oak Forest, a recent NIU grad; Connie R. Woolfolk, 37, of Flossmoor, a mother of two whose 10-year-old son has spina bifida; Jennifer L. Bishop, 34, of South Bend, Ind., a nurse and mother of three children under 8; Rhoda McFarland, 42, of Joliet, the store's manager, a former nurse practitioner in the Air Force, and a pastor; and Carrie Hudek Chiuso, 33, of Frankfort, a social worker in a high school. The survivor has not been identified.
