Search On for Robber Who Killed Church Deacon in Getaway

We listed this in yesterday's "Extra Extra" but this needs its own post. Police are looking at surveillance tape and asking CTA riders who were at the Fullerton Red/Brown line station Monday to come forward if they have information into the death of Sally Katona-King. Katona-King died from injuries sustained after a robber pushed her down a flight of stairs so he could flee the station after robbing another CTA passenger of her iPhone.
Katona-King loved riding the trains and was a deacon at her church in Logan Square, which she lived next door to. She also cooked 50-60 meals every weekend for the homeless.
Police are looking for a black male, 17-30 years old, 5'6" - 6'4", 130-210 pounds. It's a vague description, but police hope that video from the train station captured the robbery so they can have a better description.
