Arrest made in the murder and decapitation of 2-year-old Kyrian Knox




 

UPDATE:

 


CHICAGO (WLS) — Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Tuesday an arrest had been made in the murder and decapitation of 2-year-old Kyrian Knox, whose remains were found in the Garfield Park lagoon in 2015.

Guglielmi said police will hold a press conference to discuss the arrest at 5 p.m.

A year ago, the FBI positively matched Knox’s DNA with that of a dismembered body found in the lagoon in September 2015. Knox had been reported missing from Rockford, Ill., two months before the match was made. His mother said at the time he was staying with a family friend while she moved from Iowa to Chicago.







Rockford Is Now The #1 Most Dangerous City In America








Rockford, Illinois, is the most dangerous city in the U.S. with a population between 100,000-200,000 people, displacing Little Rock, Arkansas, which now ranks as #2. Tallahassee, Florida moved onto the list at #8 after just missing the cut at #12 last year; Odessa, Texas also moved from #11 to #9. Many of the rest of the positions held steady and only saw small increases or decreases in their violent crime rates.

All statistics are based on 2015 data from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report. Check out the slideshow below for the Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities Under 200,000
