Woman Questioned In West Side Stabbing Death

CHICAGO (STMW) — Police are holding a woman in custody who allegedly stabbed a man from the Austin neighborhood during a domestic dispute Saturday and fled the scene — leaving him for dead in his West Side home.

Police detained the 24-year-old woman Saturday morning for questioning in connection with the homicide. She was still in custody as of Sunday afternoon with charges pending, said police News Affairs Officer Daniel O’Brien.

Her alleged victim, Craigory Clark, 22, of 922 N. Waller Ave., was pronounced dead at 8:01 a.m. at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said. Clark’s death was ruled a homicide and the medical examiner’s office said he died from multiple stab and incise wounds.

Officers responded about 6:45 a.m. to a report of a domestic dispute at Clark’s home and found him there stabbed in the chest, police said. Clark and the woman in custody reportedly got into a heated conflict.

The woman allegedly stabbed Clark before a 52-year-old male in the home disarmed her, suffering unspecified injuries in the process, O’Brien said.

The woman fled the residence but was apprehended by police shortly after the incident.

Charges were pending Sunday afternoon, O’Brien said.

Police have not released information about the woman’s identity or her relationship with Clark.

Grand Central Area detectives are investigating.

    24? I thought Lyndia was much older.

      Lyndia is actually probably younger than this she just been rode hard and put away wet by her dad and brothers so much, and you know how that crack makes them look so much older.


  • Lyndia

    You thought right, I am much older, but not to old to do the same thing to your fat, ugly, beady eyed azz.

  • Mitt Romney’s second cousin twice removed or, his brother I’m still not sure. I’ll have to ask my/our fourteen and a half mothers.

    You guy sound like a bunch of racist. But, if you elect my cousin/brother he’ll bring the troops home. I agree, although I found out a funny thing this last week, while in Iowa with my cousin/brother, I found out that Black people make-up only 8% of the people who receive welfare in the state of Iowa. Something is wrong with that picture. Someone must be lying because that can’t be true. Then, while me and my cousin/brother were in South Carolina I heard that Black people make-up 28% of the people who receive help from Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). I’m sure that can’t be right! Black people shouldn’t get a dime of our money because, it’s our money, and our good friend “Dubya” told us that. I also agree with Newt, Black people deserve a pay check so we can keep our money for us.
