But they still had to wrap up the battery case. They declared it solved, reporting that they knew what had happened, knew who beat up Harris, and had enough evidence to "support an arrest, charge, and [turn] over to the court for prosecution." But because the victim was dead and "there is no complaining witness to aid in the prosecution," there was no reason to move forward. Harris's attackers were therefore never apprehended. [CPD quoting Chicago Mag]
Under state law someone cannot be prosecuted for a battery if the victim is deceased. That is not CPD policy.
The Groves case doesn't appear to be a matter of murder vs. homicide, but rather a matter of criminal vs. noncriminal death.
kavasa, you assert that people in this thread think poorly of the CPD because they haven't given them a fair hearing
