Mayor of Washington Park shot to death in his car


www.stltoday.com

Illinois police say the man shot to death in his car early Thursday morning in Washington Park was that town's mayor.

Mayor John Thornton, 52, had just left work as an overnight-shift foreman at a sanitation district when he was shot twice in the chest, at close range, about 5:45 a.m. Thursday. A motive for the shooting is unclear.

Reached at her home this morning, his daughter confirmed his death but declined further comment. Thornton leaves behind a wife and six children.

So this ain't an april fool joke. Can we take bets on how long will it take the medias to blame tea parties?

Anyway, my prayers to the family and hopefully the scum who did this will get arrested, convicted and sent to jail.

This is another sad story.......from the article, it seems this guy was a great person, always there for people...

Murderer was in the car with him and apparently shot him while driving, the car then crashed into a tree and the passenger jumped out of the mayor's vehicle and into a getaway car. The driver of which was subsequently arrested a couple of hours later.

Also, St. Louis, not Washington DC.
