Wednesday, September 25th – Representatives from the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation accompanied family members of Chicago Police Officers William Fahey and Richard O’Brien to the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission (TIRC) for a hearing at the State of Illinois building. The outcome of this hearing  had the  potential to request a judicial review from the Chief Judge for Jackie Wilson’s case.

Jackie Wilson and his brother, Andrew Wilson, were convicted of the murders of Fahey and O’Brien in February of 1982. Andrew Wilson died in jail and Jackie Wilson is serving a life sentence.  At the hearing, members of the Fahey and O’Brien families gave emotional presentations to the Commissioners and explained how difficult it was to relive this 31 year old case.  At the conclusion of the hearing, the Commissioners rescinded the earlier referral of the Jackie Wilson case to the Chief Judge.

The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation will continue to support the Fahey and O’Brien families as they deal with this misguided Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission. NEVER FORGET…
