Man Charged With Murder of His Grandfather - DNAinfo.com Chicago
Earlier this month a story we shared a story about the murder of an elderly man who was about to be transported to a dialysis appointment. It even elicited a comment from 6th Ward Alderman Roderick Sawyer as seen in a TV report. This morning thanks to a shared link from Concerned Citizens of Chatham we now know who did that unfortunate deed:
William Strickland, of the 400 block of East 95th Street, is charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery with a firearm in the March 13 death of his 72-year-old grandfather, also named William Strickland.
The elder Strickland was waiting near his house in the 400 block of East 95th Street for a ride to a dialysis appointment at about 3:30 a.m. He was approached by two males, police said, and shot multiple times. He was declared dead on the scene.
The younger Strickland is expected to appear in court Saturday.
