    Wrongfully convicted Lake County man settles suit for $9 million

    http://www.dailyherald.com/news/2017...-for-9-million

    A former Waukegan man wrongly imprisoned for a 1999 murder will receive $9 million through a settlement with the law enforcement agencies that put him behind bars.

    Jason Strong, 42, will receive $6 million from Waukegan in the settlement's biggest payout. The financial balance will be divided among Lake County, Vernon Hills, Round Lake Beach, Buffalo Grove, Libertyville, Lincolnshire, Barrington Hills, North Chicago and Park City.
    Sunderlin's murder remains under investigation, Nerheim said. Because it's an open case, he declined to say whether there is another suspect or if he expects someone else will be charged.

    I remember that before Sunderlin was identified, several aspects of the case were regarded as being similar to the Racine Jane Doe. With Strong's conviction tossed aside, I wonder if authorities are going to look in that direction again?
