Although the majority of Illinois crime scene cleaners probably work for crony crime scene cleanup companies, they do know about homicide, suicide, unattended death, and decomposition cleanup. Training orepares them for some of their future tasks. Unfortunately, Illinois crime scene cleaners probably don't know that their bosses have a welfare relationshiop with their local governments.

In fact, ironically, these cleaners pay for their jobs through their local taxes. Most recently, April, 2012, homicide detectives were involved in perpetrating a homicide in Chicago's Lawndale neighborhood.

Rika Bond died when shot by an off-duty homicide detective.

On or about 1 a.m. near 15th Place and Albany Avenue, she talked with friends when off-duty Chicago Police Det. Dante Servin drove by. Curious about this groups activities, he ordered the group to "shut up," Bond's families related this story.

Apparently, according to Bond's family, the detective became irritated. Voices rose. Soon the participants found bullets in the air from the detectives gun. All of the group ran. Rika died of a bullet to the head. Another group member died of a wound to the hand. Servin allegedly opened fire. Rika died nearly 24 hours after the shooting.

"Rika Bond was shot and killed on March 21, 2012, without any legal justification," Montgomery said during a Friday press conference. "Her young life was snuffed out by an aggressive, intimidating police officer who provoked the confrontation and when met with a verbal rejoinder took the life of an innocent young woman."

"The police spokesperson publicly claimed that the officer fired in defense of his life when a man approached his vehicle and pointed a gun at him," Montgomery said. "Incidentally, no gun was ever found."

Initially, the police department claimed that Cross approached Servin with a weapon. Allegedly fearing for his life, Servin opened fire. But the Independent Police Review Authority has since stated that no weapon was found on the scene.

In an intense interview with WGN News, Cross said that he was talking on the phone when the officer began shooting into the crowd. Cross asked the station how the officer could have thought his phone was a weapon when he was holding it to his ear and talking.

Montgomery said the shooting happened simply because someone "mouthed off" to the officer.

Darian Bond, the victim's older brother, told the Huffington Post that Servin lived in the Lawndale area, and had made a comment prior to the incident about wanting some "respect" from the community.

"He basically said, 'What do I have to do to get some peace, quiet and respect ... shoot someone?'" Darian Bond told The Huffington Post, adding that there is a possibility that Cross exchanged words with the officer but that a weapon was never involved.

Bond's family is now suing the city of Chicago and the detective in connection with her murder.

Darian Bond and Martinez Sutton, another brother of the victim, started a website and petition hoping to find justice for their sister. Darian Bond said that several witnesses believe that Servin was intoxicated when the shooting occurred. He added that his family has been canvassing the neighborhood looking for answers.

Ilana Rosenzweig, the review authority's chief administrator, said in a statement that it has identified several witnesses and also gathered physical evidence from the scene. The authority has passed on its findings to the Cook County State's Attorney's office and that the investigation is ongoing, she added.

"I couldn't believe it," Sutton said during the Friday press conference. "I saw a news story about a 22-year-old woman who had been shot in the head. I was like, I feel sorry for that family. I come to find out, we were the family."

The police would not comment on the shotter's status or the lawsuit against the department.

The Cook County State's Attorney's office did not return calls for comment.

The lawsuit against the city comes one day after 61-year-old Howard Morgan was sentenced to 40 years in prison for allegedly attempting to kill four white Chicago police officers. Morgan, an off-duty detective for the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, was pulled over by Chicago police on Feb. 21, 2005, and shot 28 times. He survived, and his family maintains that police are not telling the truth about what happened that night.

"He never fired his weapon," Morgan's wife Rosalind told CBS. "There was no gun residue on his hand, and he didn’t fire his weapon."

"They shot him 21 times in the back parts of his body and seven times in the front, and left him there in a puddle of blood," she added. "He made it then, and God will allow him to make it again."
