TURKEY TERRORISM: Wild Turkey Terrorizing Citizens In Loves Park

Several sources have reported over the last few weeks some turkeys terrorizing citizens and traffic in Loves Park.

Some turkeys have been literally attacking vehicles and chasing them in the area of Harlem and Forest Hills recently.

RS fan Tim sent us this photo he took of a turkey terrorizing traffic near this intersection.

Damage has been reported to some vehicles. No reports of injuries to citizens.

Unknown why the turkeys are doing this.

Officials have told us that the turkeys see their reflection on the vehicles, and the turkey thinks it is another turkey and that is why the turkeys are aggressive towards vehicles.

If you have to travel in this area, please use caution.

Rockford Scanner™: Shout Out To The LPPD Officers & Christopher Lobdell





Email your tips and photo to us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


Rockford Scanner wants to send a shout out to these officers and the citizen.

From the LPPD:

A police officer never knows what their next call will be. It could be a call that puts them in harm’s way, or it could be something a little more heartwarming…

We would like to give a shout out to two of our officers and to an area resident, Christopher Lobdell. While conducting school zone patrols in front of Maple School, Officer’s Eric Jacobson and Jordan Hayes noticed that sidewalks were not shoveled from the previous snow storm and school children were walking in the street to get to the cross walk.

The officers gathered up some shovels and started to clear the sidewalk around the cross walk so the school kids would not have to walk in the street to get to the crosswalk. That’s when a resident, Christopher Lobdell, drove by and saw the officers shoveling the snow. Christopher drove home, got his snow blower and returned to the school zone. After the trio finished the job, the officers decided they were going to run down to Windsor School to clear the snow around the crosswalk there.

And after loading the snow blower back into his vehicle, Christopher followed the officers to Windsor School, where he helped clear the snow from the sidewalk and the entrance to the crosswalk, so the kids would have safer access to the crosswalk.

To this trio, we thank you for caring about your Community.

And by the way, when we learned about their morning activity, we had to coax the officers into posing for the photo.

lppd, loves park, police, officer loves park police

Rockford Scanner™: COLD CASE: Joshua Range



Email your tips and photo to us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


 

Cold Case

WINNEBAGO COUNTY (IL) UNSOLVED MURDERS
Joshua Range
January 12, 2002
Rockford IL

Someone, Somewhere, Knows Something. Call the police or you can send your anonymous tips to us and we will relay them to the police for you. Email your tip to RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


I ask that you please share Joshua’s story. Will you please share? One tip…that’s all it takes. Thank You!

“He was my everything.”

Eight years and a month ago, Kathy Collins lost her best friend when Joshua Range lost his life, the victim of a brutal murder.

“He was my son; he was my best friend. He’s a good kid. I don’t know how anyone could have done something this horrific,” says Range’s mom, Julie Range.

On the morning of January 12, 2002, the 19-year-old Rochelle resident was
found stabbed to death in a drainage ditch at Rockford’s Summerdale Park near 2815 Overdene Ave.

“We feel very strongly the person who killed Josh, Josh knew,” says Rockford Police Deputy Chief Greg Lindmark.

Range’s car was found four hours later about three miles from the murder scene.

“We were able to determine he was killed in the park. His car was taken, from what we believe, from the suspect and taken to the 1100 block of Winnebago,” says Lindmark.

Back in Rochelle, the news of Range’s death came as a total shock. “I thought you were all joking. I was making deviled eggs. I never made them since. I can’t even boil an egg,” says Range’s best friend Kathy Collins. Josh’s friends remember the recent Rochelle High School graduate as someone who loved his cars.

“Had to be a Baretta with tinted windows.”

Loved music…
“Very wide variety, just very musical in general.”

And loved to work his magic in the kitchen.
“Making the best Banana Splits.”

“This is his 8th grade graduation.”

While Julie Range vividly remembers a phone call she made to her youngest of two sons the afternoon before Josh’s murder.

“I told him I loved him, and he of course said ‘Oh Mom, quit you know. I love you too,’ and that’s the last I talked to him,” says Range.

According to police the investigation suggests that Range’s death may have been a date gone bad.

“And he had come to Rockford for what he told friends was a date. We were never able to determine who this date was with. It was a male friend of his.

And they liked to meet in various parks in Rockford. In this particular case he was supposed to meet with an individual later in the evening,” says Lindmark.
Obviously there’s someone out there with information. What would you say to that person who’s watching? “Help me heal, let me get closure. I’m tired of crying,” says Collins.

“They say it gets better; it doesn’t. It eats away at you. When he died, your life does change,” says Range.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Police Detective Bureau at (815) 319-6400 or Crime Stoppers (815) 963-7867.

Sharing generates awareness,
Awareness generates support,
Support generates HOPE.
