COOK COUNTY, Ill. — Cook County law-enforcement officials Tuesday announced indictments in two more cold-case murders stemming from a raid on the Harvey Police Department this year, and said they also are investigating about 200 rape kits found in the suburb's evidence vault, many of which were never sent to the state crime lab.
With the latest charges came a warning from the sheriff's and state's attorney's offices to the Harvey Police Department, which has had dozens of unsolved homicides on the books in recent years.
