CRIME, two crimes of passion [FP, M, SP]

Proviso Township had a couple passion crimes in the news recently.

Melrose Park Herald (John Huston):
Latoya Patton, 22, of 127 S. 20th Ave. in Maywood, allegedly got in her car, pulled an illegal U-turn on Lake Street and accelerated toward the victim, who was crossing the street with others, said Stone Park Deputy Chief Louis Fatta.

A Stone Park police officer, sitting in his squad car looking for traffic violators on Lake Street, heard the squealing of Patton's tires and witnessed her car strike the victim, "throwing her into the air," Fatta said.

Patton had argued with the victim at Nitro, Stone Park night club. Patton's BAC was above the legal limit.

Forest Park Review (Bill Dwyer):
A post-midnight fight over a woman on a second floor porch Aug. 12 has left a 30-year-old Berwyn man on life support and a Midlothian man being held in Cook County Jail without bail.

When police responded to a disturbance call at a three-flat in the 900 block of Elgin around 12:30 a.m. that Saturday night, they found the man lying in the alley below a porch, unconscious and bleeding from the head. The victim's girlfriend and another man were attempting to control the bleeding.

What's Jerry Springer say? "Take care of yourselves and each other"?


  • Can I repeat Proviso Township is a huge ghetto and all people who care about there families need to move out!
