Indicted Art Dealer Becomes Fugitive?

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Oct 31, 2008 10:10PM

A reader close to the case has written in to tell us that it appears indicted Northbrook art dealer James Kennedy is on the run from Johnny Law. Kennedy was originally indicted for art forgery and threatening a federal witness in the case and it seems Kennedy didn't show up for his bond hearing in Federal court on Wednesday. It was later discovered he also tried to flee the country into Canada later that day; he was stopped but still released. Huh. Anyway, he's still on the run and a new warrant has apparently been issued for his arrest. We talked to Chicago FBI office and they had no record of the warrant but said it could have been issued by another law enforcement group, i.e., the U.S. Marshals.
