Demand more detectives to solve cases

By Chinta Strausberg


Pam Bosley, founder of Purpose Over Pain whose son, Terrell, was slain on April 4, 2006 while standing in a church parking lot, will be joined by parents who lost their children to violence today, 6 p.m. Wednesday, September 12, 2012, at the Chicago Police Headquarters, 35th and Michigan, to protest the high number of unsolved murder cases.

Wearing black to represent “unfairness and sadness,” Bosley said, “Over 70 percent of the murder cases have not been solved.”  “We are coming together because we want to bring our concerns to the attention of the detectives.”

Referring to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s saying he has police on the frontline, Bosley said, “We need more people on the back working on our cases. Our cases are unsolved. We want more detectives to work on our cases.

“If they need more detectives hired to work on our cases,” she said. “Us parents go out posting flyers. I have a $7,000 reward for the arrest of the killer of my son. We get leads. I know that people don’t talk, but some do want to talk. We have detectives who are not going out to talk to them” after parents give them some good leads.

“They sit on these leads because they say they don’t want third party information, but third party leads to investigations. It leads to opening your case. It should be investigated and not have a door closed on these leads,” she said.

Bosley referred to Drew Peterson who was recently found guilty of killing his third wife and how that jury relied on circumstantial evidence and testimonies from friends who claimed his third wife told them he planned to kill her. “It can be done. It just depends on who you are.

“Our cases are numbers and my son was just another number with a tragic end, and I don’t want my son to be a number. I want my son’s case solved,” she said. “The person who murdered my child needs to be off the street because if you do it once, you’ll do it again. I need closure though I will always miss my son,” Bosley said.
