    IL - Officer Michael Bailey, 62, shot to death, Chicago, 18 July 2010

    Reward raised to $100,000 in cop's death

    Authorities raised the reward to $100,000 this afternoon for information on the killing of Chicago Police Officer Michael Bailey, who was shot to death last Sunday as he returned home after guarding Mayor Richard Daley's house.

    The reward, which had been $70,000, got a boost from the FBI.

    About two dozen Chicago Police employees and volunteers spent the morning and afternoon canvassing a quarter-mile radius around Bailey's home in the 7400 block of South Evans Street. The handed out flyers and asked neighbors to call authorities with any leads.

    While several people of interest have been questioned, police said no one was in custody.

    Ald. Freddrenna Lyle (6th) said she believes someone with information will come forward.

    "These guys, they talk," she said as she began canvassing. "They talk to other people. Sometimes they brag. Reward money can be an incentive to loosen lips. We've seen it work in the past."

    So incredibly sad. He was a month away from the mandatory retirement age of 63. According to the article he was in uniform and some teen tried to rob him of the car he bought for himself to celebrate his retirement.

    100,000 is a nice reward. I hope someone talks and they are able to prosecute and convict the person or persons responsible.

    Rest in Peace Officer Bailey. Justice will be served!
    Prayers to your family, friends and coworkers and for LE investigating this case - that the are able to solve it quickly.

    so disgusting

    these people that would take a life over a car /// there is no rehabilitation for them IMO

    those who would kill a uniformed cop, an older man - they must be already so damaged that there is no return

    I hope they nail this kid and I hope he never gets out
