CHICAGO (CBS) — Cook County Sheriff’s police credited a new online crime tips feature with helping solve the murder of a college student.
Sheriff Tom Dart said the new program is “the wave of the future.”
An anonymous tip led to murder charges against two suspects in the shooting death of former Proviso East High School star athlete DeShawn McCarthy.
“It’s just a more convenient way for some people to talk these days. I can’t tell you how many people I know that I think have given up on physically talking to people, and every communication is through text and email, so this is tying into that as well,” Dart said.
