    An update from the Windy City Rollers Facebook page:

    Dear Windy City Rollers friends, family and fans:



    It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing of our league mate, Yvonne Johnson Hammer ("Hammer"). As her death is still being actively investigated, please pass any information you think might be relevant to her disappearance directly to the Chicago Police Department. The Windy City Rollers are unable to provide any further information at this time, but we will be sure to reach out to you on behalf of Yvonne's friends and family in the coming days.



    Hammer joined our league in June of 2010 and had not yet had the opportunity to play her first public game as a member of the Double Crossers, so she may not be familiar to some of you. However, her league members will always remember her for her ready smile, her amazing work ethic, and her extraordinary athleticism. We know that you will keep Hammer and her family in your hearts during this difficult time.



    Thank you,

    The Windy City Rollers

    I can't find anything more 'official' about her death either.

    But - I did find comments by an 'aunt' below the article at this link

    I can't find any updates as to whether Yvonne's death & the woman in the abandoned building are related.

    Rest in Peace Yvonne.
    I worked with Yvonne for a couple of years at Cobo Hall in Detroit during the auto show. I am now a retired Iron Worker. Towards the end of December 2010 the boss at the Ford booth where I was working came in with a story that Yvonne had been killed while in Chicago. His story was that she was arrested by the Chicago police for drunk driving. She was released in the middle of the night by the police in a very bad part of town with no transportation. I guess that her car was impounded. Not far from the police station she was picked up or kidnapped by a group of men. She was then taken to abandended house were she was 'gang raped' and murdered. Now that is the story that this boss ( Steve ) was circulating around Cobo Hall.
    I have searched and searched for years after and I can not come up with what really happened. Is this true? Someone has to know something. To me it seems as though the Chicago Police would been charged with something if this is the way that it resally happened. Does anyone really know the truth?

    This is not the first case like this I have heard.
    This is totally unacceptable to me. To tell a woman/man alone to...... go......yer done. I would not leave. But I assume they make you go. Knowing the neighborhood this should be a crime. Even allowing a person to go out in the dead of night should be.

    now I am po'd

    This would not be a huge surprise considering this is what happened in the case of Mitrice Richardson in Malibu California. She was released from jail, allegedly acting oddly, without a cell phone. It was a fairly isolated police station. She never made it home. Her body would never have been found if it hadn't been for the diligence of her parents.

    Of course it's my own opinion, the opinion rental shop was fresh out of borrowed opinions.
