Service set for 5 women killed a decade ago in Lane Bryant; suspect sketch released

Police release updated suspect sketch in 2008 store killings

TINLEY PARK, Ill. (AP) — Suburban Chicago police have released an updated 3-D image of a suspect in a shooting that left five women dead in a Lane Bryant clothing store a decade ago.

Friday is the tenth anniversary of the Tinley Park killings. On Thursday, police released the new image prepared by Michigan State Police. It’s an enhanced version of the original sketch that was based on an account given to authorities by one of the women inside the store who was wounded in the Feb. 2, 2008 shootings.

The case remains unsolved. Tinley Park Police Chief Steve Neubauer says authorities hope the enhanced sketch “will lead to the identification of the suspect in this horrible crime.”

Police say a detective remains assigned full-time to the case and they’ve investigated thousands of leads over the last decade.

TINLEY PARK, Ill. (AP) — A suburban Chicago church is holding a prayer service to mark the 10th anniversary of a shooting that left five women dead in a Lane Bryant clothing store.

The Daily Southtown reports the service will be Friday at St. Stephen Deacon and Martyr Church in Tinley Park. The case remains unsolved.

The women were killed Feb. 2, 2008, when a man posing as a delivery driver entered the store, pulled out a gun, said he was robbing the store and herded the women into a back room. Police say the victims were bound with duct tape, told to lay face-down on the floor and were shot.

Police say a detective remains assigned full-time to the case and they’ve investigated thousands of leads over the last decade.
