Judge Toomin questions self-defense in Daley nephew case

A judge questioned Thursday how the police concluded that Richard J. “R.J.” Vanecko, a nephew of then-Mayor Richard M. Daley, acted in self-defense when he delivered a deadly blow nearly eight years ago, noting that five witnesses have given sworn statements denying that the victim, David Koschman, was physically aggressive.

“Certainly, none of these statements lend credence to that conclusion,” Cook County Circuit Judge Michael P. Toomin told a lawyer for Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, who’s fighting a Koschman family petition seeking to have a special prosecutor investigate the case. “There’s utterly no evidence he was physically aggressive. Where does the claim of self-defense have its genesis?”

The mother could still have legal cause if it can be proven that the original investigation was a cover-up and the re-opening continued it. Long shot, though.

Judge Toomin had at least 2 murder cases reversed (People v Hansen and People V Vargas) by the Illinois Supreme Court and one of which is People v Vargas, No.79044. In Doc no.79044 Judge Toomin allowed the case to continue as he left the courtroom to take a phone call from a Judge Brady without having first called a recess. And this Judge gets to pick a Special Prosecutor for the Koshman case? So much for the clerk telling us cell phones and computers must be turned off in Judge Toomin's courtroom. I think he should excuse himself before making his decision come next Friday April 6th.

Hey Locke Bowman: when you go to get depositions from the Detectives involved in this case, don't forget the Chief of Detectives and the Deputy Supt of Investigative Services when this was going on. When this first hit the newspapers, the two of them were very outspoken in the bars that there was no cover-up. Now, 6 months later when asked, they suffer amnesia.
Don't just go after the Detectives who did what they were told.
