Whoever did this is not talking to nobody. The truth is the Police will never solve even half of their cases if not for the criminals big mouths. They brag. This thug and the thugs that killed the 2 Chicago Policemen and the one Maywood Cop need to be brought to justice.

This case reminds me of the Brown Chicken murders. Like the police chief stated "this case will be solved, someone knows something". That is true, but, it will take close to 10 years before someone comes forward with the identity of the killer. It will either be a scorned girl friend or someone on their death bed.

Howcome every Nancy Grace episode involves Caylee the 5 year old who was killed by her young mother?

Why dosent Nancy Grace do an episode about the Layne bryant murders?

EVERY episode is about Cayle, before that she was doing shows about that girl from aruba who went missing.

I drive by the Lane Bryant on a regular basis and it's so horrible to imagine what happened there. How can a human being doing that? Whoever did this will eventually get what they deserve. I just hope it happens in a way that the families of the victims can experience some small amount of relief.

My thought are with the familys and surviving victim who I'm sure lives in terror everyday. May you have some peace in the wonderful memories you have of your loved ones. God Speed to the police in their investigation. If that one person who knows something would come forward so many people could finally rest. I know the police will solve this and I hope the animal who committed this crime is brought to justice swiftly.

I feel so sorry for the families who lost their loved ones, but I can't for the life of me undersand how this piece of garbage can literally get away with murder. Especially with all the resources (man and technology) available.

Should you catch him, ask him one question before you blow his head off. Ask him why.

Unfortunately, this case will never be solved. The authorities blew it during the first 24 hours. Too bad.

I hope justice is brought sooner than later for the family and friends of those now gone.

Not to be crass, but I hate the term 'execution style,' as mentioned in the article. It doesn't change the fact that these people had their lives taken. They were murdered. Saying it was 'execution style' is redundant and unnecessary.

I also agree with the poster wondering where is the coverage on this by Nancy Grace.

Why do you say that with such sincerity? There are many crimes that take a long time to get solved, it will get solved! My thoughts and prayers to the families and people involved. Something like this effects everybody.

The police should let one or more psychic's into that former store, and also allow them to go over the case files. Some crimes have been solved that way.

I am still just sick about this. Ms. Hudek was counselor at my daughter's high school and the entire school was devastated when this happened. Although I am not familiar with any of the other victims, I'm sure that their lives are equally empty in that way that happens when someone is taken from us unexpectedly. My sincere condolences to everyone involved.

Funny thing about that plaza; the day before I had gone there to check out the possibility of getting a good deal on some cross country skis at Dick's and the longer I was at that plaza, the weirder I felt. Next thing I knew, I was at the knife counter, buying a fairly good sized pocket knife and feeling totally creeped out. As I left the plaza the words, "easy on ramp, easy off ramp" kept running through my head.

I really hope they catch the perpetrator soon. It won't heal the families hearts, but may help in some small way to know this man would never do it again.

unbelievable and outrageous that this"mastermind" left no viable clues for the police. i don't know much about this sort of thing but, could they not ask for help from a bigger agency like State or FBI? Is it at all possible that Tinley Park is overwhelemed by something this huge-I'm sure TP is a fine force but.....well, maybe they have asked for help.

This needs to be solved - it burns me up knowing this individual is out there free and a potential threat.

Of course if he owed a parking ticket- no doubt they could track him down even if he was in a cave in tora bora- maybe put des plaines police on it and tell them the unidentified suspect owes a few hundred in parking fines- belive me they will find him

good point - the Brown's murders did get solved kind of- whatever happend to those two wastes of space ?- have they been executed yet? or have their trials even started?

anyway- Brown's gives me some hope that someday somoene will come forward. I'm sure it's very possible that more than than just the killer knows of his acts

So Pete, just how many hundreds were your parking fines?

Oh right. I'm sure if people were allowed to carry concealed weapons then these women would absolutely have had them. Give it a rest you dope. That's the kind of drivel that you, Moses and the NRA have tried to sow for years.

He means that there's nothing the POLICE could have done to prevent this crime. Had even just one of these ladies been trained and licensed to carry a concealed firearm, this situation could have ended much differently.
The police can't be everywhere at every time. In fact, there was a police officer in his patrol car in the next parking lot while this crime was happening.
But, thanks to Mayor Daley, Mike Madigan, Emil Jones and Rod Blagojevich, These ladies never stood a chance.
I hope that these gentlemen continue to sleep well knowing that their personal dislike for guns, failure to understand the meaning of the 2nd Amendment, failure to understand that criminals don't obey gun laws and failure to allow the citizens of Illinois to defend themselves contibuted to the murder of these five women.
