Lane Bryant Murders: What can we learn from this tragedy? Part-1
In less than 40 minutes a purported robber, posing as a deliveryman, herded six women into a back room where they were bound with duck tape and shot. One victim survived the massacre by playing dead.
Last Thursday marked the four-year anniversary of the Lane Bryant murders, which took place in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park. No arrests have been made, though over 6.000 tips have been received.
On the day of the murders Tinley Park police released the following time-line of events.
1) At 10:08 a.m. The suspect enters the store posing as deliveryman.
2) A few minutes later he pulls out a gun and announces a robbery. He moves the women into a backroom and ties them up (Many still aren’t convinced that this was a robbery gone awry, but may have been some type of revenge or vendetta killing.)
3) He was distracted when two customers entered the store. They then became victims, too.
4) 10:44 a.m. McFarland calls 911 after freeing her hands. Police believe the women were alive at this time.
5) 10:46 a.m. Police arrive on scene to find 5 women dead.
