LOL @ Chicago being the most dangerous place in the world...clearly someones sources were confused. I love Chicago, and yes there are some parts that are dangerous, but in reality it's a HUGE city with millions of people living in it...every huge city is dangerous and I'm sure some Middle Eastern countries outrank Chicago as danger zones don't you think?

That's so young to lose her mom. Jennifer's dad died years ago. But I hoped there would be an update on her nephew by now. Missing more than 24 hours isn't promising. I hope the family gets some good news out of this.

who says chicago is the most dangerous place in the world? this is such a tragedy, especially because neighbors heard gunshots in the MORNING and the bodies were found in the afternoon. if only the police had been called when the gunshots were heard, maybe they could have been saved? truly sad, i hope the sister and nephew are found.

I'm sorry to hear that. That is the worst thing ever that could happen to a person. My heart goes out to her. It's going to take many years for her to get over this. Most mothers are the very foundation of a women. I love my mother and this horrible thing would nearly kill me. My deepest prayers go out to her.
