So I've had a strange night to say the least. Let me start by catching you all up with a story from my neck of the woods from a couple days ago.
Two fugitive bank robbers who slid down the side of a high-rise federal jail on a rope constructed from bedsheets made their getaway by hopping
a cab a few blocks away, authorities said Wednesday as they continued the manhunt for the elusive convicts.
Federal agents obtained surveillance video of Joseph "Jose" Banks and Kenneth Conley jumping into a taxi at Congress Parkway and Michigan
Avenue at about 2:40 a.m., FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde said. The video showed the two wearing light-colored clothing. The break helped investigators
pinpoint the timing of the bold nighttime escape from some 15 stories above the street at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Banks and Conley, both
convicted bank robbers awaiting sentencing, were last accounted for at 10 p.m. Monday during a routine bed check. Hours after the pair fled south in
the cab, they banged on Conley's mother's door in far southwest suburban Tinley Park but were quickly sent on their way, according to a family
Ok.... So there was a prison escape in Chicago 2 days ago, the escapees are believed to be in (or around) the town i currently live in Tinley Park,
Now this is where things get strange. I'm in my bedroom watching Thursday night NBA on TNT, my gf is on the couch right outside the room and decides
to head into our unfinished basement because we occasionally have water damage from bad storms. And as you all know the whole midwest is being slammed
by a winter storm night. So she heads down there to see if there's any water coming over the foundation on our back concrete wall.
So she comes back upstairs into the bedroom, seems somewhat startled and says "I just heard voices coming from the basement window".. I replied with
"what were they saying?"... She goes "I think the voice said WE need to leave together"... And that was it.. I doubted her at first, but then I
heard a noise outside our bedroom window. It could have been wind it could have a been a person outside, I dunno.... So what I did next was head into
the basement to see if I could see or hear anything. well, i didn't.. So then I grabbed a iron out of my golf set tossed on my shoes and grabbed a
flash light and told her I was going out back to look. Well i did and i walked around and couldnt find anything.. I came back in and said to my gf "
should we call the non-emergency police to at least report what you heard?" she replied with no and didn't make anything of it then...
What bothers me is that there was a prison escape less than 2 days ago. The suspects are believed to possibly still be in my town and my gf heard a
very "questionable" thing in the basement... Well, folks not sure what I should do... For now I've left it alone, my gf has now gone to bed and
I'm sitting on my couch typing this to all of you with my trusty golf club next to me...
Anywyas, it was a strange night, especially with all the 12/21 crap on my mind.. Hopefully my gf was just hearing things and hopefully there really
wasnt two people outside of my basement window just 90 minutes ago...
Well that's all...
