“A real life monster.”  That’s how Rockford, IL’s mayor described the incident where a sex offender from Blue Island, IL abducted a girl in Rockford and murdered her.  He darn near got the 10-year-old younger sister too, trying to strangle her, but she got away to run home and tell her mother.

This is a truly horrific story.  A monster and convicted sex offender named Antonio Monroe, 44 is accused of this heinous crime.

Antonio Monroe kidnapped and murdered a 10-year-old girl, police said. (Mugshot: Illinois State Police).  How many more has he done this to?

From the press conference, the police chief didn’t want to give too many details, but did say it’s a “transient” area where the incident happened.

Law and Crime has the story that makes most normal people ill and angry.

A convicted sex offender kidnapped a 10-year-old girl and murdered her, according to cops in Rockford, Illinois.

Speaking in a press conference Sunday, Police Chief Carla Redd said they are still investigating why Antonio Monroe, 44, was there. He lived in the Chicago-area city of Blue Island, about 100 miles away, records show.

The victim’s mother called authorities Saturday, saying her 6-year-old daughter returned home and said a man took her 10-year-old sister, cops said.

Officers said they responded at approximately 12:07 p.m. A man flagged police down about a half-hour later at 12:40 p.m. He said he found a child unresponsive outside a home in the 1200 block of 9th Avenue.

“Upon arrival, officers located the child and began administrating CPR,” officers said. “Rockford Fire Department arrived on scene and transported the child to a local hospital where she was pronounced deceased.”



Too bad there wasn’t an armed good guy nearby.
