Unfortunately looking way often means that we blame the victim for simply being. We dare anybody to come forward and say that this was a good person, a loved person, a cherished person. This post is about about a person who did come forward, out of the respect and love of a person who the majority would blame for being a victim.
This is the not the first story I received (unfortunately), just the last time I fail to share the story with the public...
Police continue investigating ninth homicide"Im sooo sick over this latest homicide. Dale was in my fourth grade class. He was raised by grandma and she died of cancer on Easter break of his fourth grade year. I remember Dale calling me collect to tell me. His grandma didn't have a will so I asked Don Jackson to do one for free, and he did. He moved to Springfield with a relative after that. ... contacted me recently and told me that he got his GED. He was working at Burger King on Allen road."
Police made no arrests Sunday in connection with the fatal shooting of Daledrek Carpenter early Saturday morning.
Carpenter’s body was found in an alley in the 1100 block of West Lincoln Avenue at 4:30 a.m. Saturday.
Preliminary autopsy results revealed he was killed by multiple gunshot wounds to the back, according to Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll.
