Police searching for shooter and motive in alleged murder case

A recent shooting death in East St. Louis is being investigated by both the East St. Louis Police Department and the Illinois State Police. The ISP was called in to assist the East St. Louis Police in investigating the crime. At the moment, the crime appears to present an opaque window to investigators, who have no suspect and no motive. If a suspect is identified and arrested, he or she may need the services of a capable criminal defense attorney.

Suspect arrested, charged with murder and robbery

On August 13, 2017, police received a call about gunshots fired near the Owens Housing Complex in East St. Louis. Officers found two gunshot victims in a Chrysler. The male in the driver's seat was dead, and the person in the passenger's seat was bleeding from several gunshot wounds. A suspect was finally arrested on November 6, 2017, but details of the crime and the police investigation remain sketchy. However, an experienced criminal defense attorney may find fertile ground for attacking the prosecution's case.

Local man charged with selling cocaine near high school, church

All fifty states have passed laws increasing penalties for drug-related crimes committed with so-called "drug free zones" around schools and other institutions.

Youthful adventure can rapidly become tragic, especially if handguns are involved. Two Belleville teenagers were allegedly trying to frighten the residents of a house on West Main Street by firing shots into the dwelling when one of them is alleged to have accidentally shot the other. Now, one of the boys is dead, and the other has been charged with his murder. A competent criminal defense attorney may be the suspect's only hope to avoid conviction for a major crime.

The Major Case Squad presently includes eight counties in Illinois, including St. Clair and Madison.
