Reward for information on supects for murdered police officer Michael Bailey

I haven't posted about any rewards in the case of Officer Bailey thus far, however there is another increase in the award money thanks to the Park Manor neighbors:
The Park Manor Neighbors’ Community Council has pledged a $1,000 reward leading to information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible in the slaying of police Officer Michael Bailey, a neighborhood resident.

The donation joins those of other law enforcement organizations and community groups, bringing the total reward in the case to $101,000, according to the council’s release.

“Officer Bailey was a police officer that not only served this city, but our friend who served his neighbor,” Park Manor Neighbors’ President Darlene F. Tribue said in the release. “Today we join the chorus of law enforcement organizations calling for our neighbors to come forward with any information that will remove the killers from our streets. All of us are in danger as long the perpetrators walk the streets.”

To date, the Fraternal Order of Police, the FBI, the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation and NOBLE (the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives) have all contributed to the reward fund, according to a police News Affairs release.
If you have any information please come forward!

Also three teens had been released in connection with the murder of Officer Bailey:
But despite the questioning of three teens last week, no one has been charged in the murder.

One of the three teens questioned said he grew up with Bailey and knew his family. The teen, whom the Chicago Sun-Times is not identifying because he was not charged, said he was arrested Thursday but released Friday afternoon.

The 18-year-old said he had a previous conviction for a weapons violation but had nothing to do with the murder.

"They tried to say that I had something to do with Michael Bailey's shooting and I was an eyewitness, but it wasn't true and they let me go," he said. "But I loved Michael Bailey. I knew him, and I grew up with him."
The other teens, ages 16 and 17, were also picked up late last week but were no longer in custody as of Saturday afternoon, police sources said.

Police spokesman Roderick Drew on Saturday said the investigation was ongoing and needed to "proceed ahead."
OK, if you have any info please call Calumet Area detectives at (312) 747-8272.
