Hello Patricia:

If you can provide approximate date and place in Illinois, I
will see if I can look up the same or similar event in my
database. You cannot look up individual cases via my website
directly, I need to do that.


I'm pretty sure the case is not listed as described. I would
remember something like that. Could you kindly tell us the
source also?

Please respond go my email address:


Good luck

- Larry Hatch
