Written by on November 27, 2019

It’s a story that has shocked the city. 26 year old, Donald Thurman, has been charged with murder of a 19-year old sophomore at UIC (University of Illinois at Chicago), Ruth George.

Thurman saw George at the blue line stop and cat-called her, in which she didn’t reply. He became angry and then followed George to the parking garage, where he put her in a choke hold and strangled her, before raping her in the backseat of her vehicle.

“The defendant was angry that he was being ignored. The defendant came up behind the victim, grabbed her around the neck from behind, and put her into a choke hold,” said Cook County Asst. State’s Attorney James Murphy. “With his arms still wrapped around the victim’s neck the defendant dragged the victim from the ground and he opened her back seat car door.”
