With almost 100% instantaneous and correct metaphysical certitude, when reading of this incident you know the race of the perpetrator. NOWHERE does the media dare say what the race of the villain is, but the police release does tell you. Crimes of this sort normally would call for the death penalty. Especially, because it is an egregious case committed on hospital grounds.
Illinois no longer has the death penalty.
Again, the race of the perp is not given in the media articles, and only by reading the comments can you get the news release from the Zion police.
Edited news release from Zion Police Department:
On Monday, Aug. 15, 2016, at 9:48 p.m., the Zion Dispatch Center received a call of a battery in the area of 27th Street and Gabriel Avenue. Responding officers located the victim, Shannon Vincel, 46, of Springfield, Mo., who sustained severe head trauma. She was transported by Zion Fire/Rescue to a hospital with life-threatening injuries; she died shortly after 11 p.m. on Aug. 16.
A witness reported the attacker is black [emphasis by N.S.] and was wearing dark clothing. He approached Vincel and the witness on the sidewalk from the west while the two were seated outside in the 1900 block of 27th Street. The offender struck Vincel in the head with an unknown object.
