    IL - Crystal Polk, 25, found murdered, Chicago, 5 Oct 2005

    Police believe a serial rapist who breaks into homes on the South Side at night is responsible for one murder and five sexual assaults

    A total of 10 attacks in recent months, including one that resulted in the death of 25-year-old Crystal Polk, led police to identify a pattern linked to one suspect, officials said. But they said that the violent incidents go back to August.

    The attacks have occurred in an area between 74th and 81st Streets and between Drexel and Jeffery Boulevards, police said.

    Victims range in age from 30 to 50, said Detective Jeffrey Roberts, who investigates sex crimes in the Wentworth Area. The only obvious trait the victims have had in common has been that they live or sleep alone.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    October 2006:

    DNA under the fingernails of a woman found dead in 3-foot-high weeds last year has led to an arrest, authorities said Sunday.

    Devon Fortner, 23, is accused of killing Crystal Polk, 26, whose body was found partially clothed and decomposing on Oct. 8, 2005, in a South Side lot. She appeared to have been sexually assaulted, police have said...

    Police initially said Polk probably was killed by a serial rapist who had attacked nine women on the South Side. Later, they determined that her death was unrelated to those cases.

    The serial rapist was caught, too...

    November 2005:

    Detectives investigating a series of sexual attacks on women in their homes have linked a 21-year-old South Side man to three of the cases and are pursuing DNA evidence in several others...

    Police say they arrested Prince J. Richard, 21, on Oct. 25, as he tried to flee a 76-year-old woman's apartment in the 7900 block of South Rhodes Avenue. Police say he attacked the woman and struggled with her as she screamed, but she was not sexually assaulted...

    Richard's criminal record includes a 2002 felony conviction for dog fighting. Police responding to a 911 call about a dog fight found Richard in an abandoned house with several other people and five bloodied and cut pit bulls.
