A man who’s on parole for carjacking the Chicago Tribune’s overnight crime reporter accidentally shot himself in the leg with an illegal handgun during a police street stop on Wednesday afternoon, prosecutors said. He’s now being held without bail and will likely be heading back to prison.
Early on December 4, 2017, Noriyhea Evans was “celebrating” his 18th birthday with a friend when the duo walked up to a woman as she sat inside a car on the parking lot of a Dunkin’ Donuts in Bridgeport. The men knocked on the car window and ordered the woman out. Then, they sped away with her vehicle.
As it turned out, the woman, then 29-years-old, was the Chicago Tribune’s overnight crime reporter. She was sitting in a company car waiting for a story to break when the story came to her — via Evans and the other guy.
And the amusing part:
While speaking with investigators Wednesday night, Evans reportedly told cops that he is a member of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s extended family. One source said he claimed to be her cousin, while another said he claimed that his mother is Foxx’s cousin.
Foxx’s spokesperson told CWBChicago that Foxx “has no idea who this person is or if they are related to her.”
Which would make him a second-cousin or something similar.
The Tribune has a story at this embedded link. Somehow, they make it through the entire incident without once mentioning the fact that his previous arrest for car-jacking the Tribune’s own crime reporter nor the repeated claims of “Don’t you know who I’m related to?”
Must have something to do with anything that reflects badly on a democrat is immediately hidden and stuffed down the memory-hole.
And only the CWB Blog manages to do any real reporting.
