Inmate questioned in murder of Officer Michael Bailey

A 24-year-old prison inmate is being questioned in the 2010 slaying of Chicago police Officer Michael Bailey, sources told the Tribune.

The man was sent to prison downstate after his arrest last September on vehicular hijacking and weapons charges. At that time, he had been on parole following a 2009 conviction for aggravated battery to a peace officer and a 2008 drug conviction.

The man has not been charged in the officer's killing, and no one was officially calling him a suspect.

Bailey, 62, was shot early on the morning of July 18 last year while cleaning his new Buick — a retirement gift to himself — outside his home in the 7400 block of South Evans Avenue in the South Side's Park Manor neighborhood, police said.
It was duly noted and has been that Officer Bailey was still in uniform when he was attacked outside of his home.
