Publisher’s Son Shot and Killed on Chicago South Side

Posted by Juanita Bratcher On September - 28 - 2015 Comments Off on Publisher’s Son Shot and Killed on Chicago South Side

Neal A. Bratcher, Jr., son of Juanita Bratcher, Publisher of CopyLine Magazine, and the late labor leader Neal A. Bratcher, Sr., has died. Neal Jr. died Thursday, September 24, 2015.

“Words cannot adequately express my hurt after losing my only son, Neal A. Bratcher, Jr. to gun violence,” Bratcher stated, through hurt and tears. “For a while now I have read the statistics on gun violence and crime in Chicago, but it never occurred to me that I would lose my son through gun violence.

“My son, Neal, was shot on September 23, 2015 at about 11:30 p.m. He died at 12:06 p.m. on September 24, 2015. My heart hurts. Our family hurt. We’re truly grateful to our friends and colleagues who’ve voiced sympathy and offered their support during our bereavement. Obviously, this is a trying time for our family,” Bratcher concluded.

Funeral and Burial services for Bratcher are private. Condolences can be sent to www.copylinemagazine@yahoo.com or juanitabratcher@yahoo.com.
