    IL - Brashai Griffin, 15, raped & murdered, Sauk Village, 2 April 2008

    SAUK VILLAGE, Ill. (CBS) ― A body was found in the south suburbs Friday, two days after the disappearance of a 15-year-old girl.

    Police are still working the scene at 10 p.m. Friday. CBS 2's Dana Kozlov reports the body was discovered Friday afternoon in a wooded area near 223rd Street and Torrence Avenue in Sauk Village.

    Sauk Village Police Chief Thomas Lacheta said because of the body's position in a creek, it was impossible to tell if it was that of a male or a female, the age or the race. However, he did say it was discovered Friday afternoon by a village employee just hours after police launched a search for the missing teen.

    Authorities: Missing teen's body found in creek - Brashai Griffin

    The Cook County Medical Examiner's office says a body found in a creek in the southern Chicago suburb of Sauk Village is that of a 15-year-old girl who had been missing for two days.

    Sauk Village police say the body of Brashai Griffin was discovered late Friday by a village employee searching for the missing girl. They say the creek was near a trail that children use as a short cut home from a nearby junior high school.

    Yes, very sad. I hadn't even seen a media report that she was missing.

    I hope they find the person responsible for this very soon. How horrible for her parents and friends.

    I didn't hear anything about her being missing either. So sad, she seemed like a beautiful girl.

    From February 2013:

    http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...ey-and-griffin

    A Sauk Village man today was sentenced to 75 years in prison for sexually assaulting and strangling a 15-year-old honor student and classmate whose body was found dumped in a wooded area in the south suburbs in 2008, authorities said.

    Timothy Easley, 24, was given the sentence during a hearing at the Markham Courthouse before Cook County Judge Luciano Panici...

    A jury convicted Easley in January of first-degree murder and aggravated criminal sexual assault for sexually assaulting and strangling honor student Brashai Griffin... Easley and Griffin were classmates at Bloom Trail High School.
