The Peoria Police made arrests within an hour after of the first homicide of the year. Peoria Public Radio’s Tanya Koonce reports marijuana and cash were found at the apartment where the victim was shot.
The 28-year-old woman who was allegedly abducted from work by her estranged husband in Pekin Monday was found dead yesterday in her car parked in the OSF St Francis deck. Peoria Public Radio’s Tanya Koonce reports her husband shot himself after about nine hours with Peoria Police.
If there was any question about the standing of Police Chief Steve Settingsgaard in the eyes of the broader Peoria community it was likely put to rest with last night's City Council meeting. Peoria Public Radio's Tanya Koonce reports on the meeting and the lengthy closed-door session that followed:
The Peoria City Council has an open at-large seat to fill with the death last month of Gary Sandberg. The need to fill the remainder of Sandberg’s seat comes at the same time city government is facing some allegations of policy misconduct in the police department. Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis is our guest to talk about these matters. That is this episode of OUTSIDE THE HORSESHOE. Join us the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month on 89.9fm for OUTSIDE THE HORSESHOE that airs immediately before our live broadcast of the Peoria City Council meetings.
