Authorities say police investigating five slayings at a south suburban Chicago clothing store earlier this year have gone to Texas to follow up on leads. Tinley Park Police Chief Michael O’Connell told the Southtown Star that 11 task force members from several departments and the Illinois State Police went to Texas. O’Connell says they went to find and interview friends of one of the victims, Rhoda McFarland. The 42-year-old Lane Bryant manager was shot and killed in the store on February 2, along with four other women. A sixth woman was injured. Authorities have released a composite picture of the shooter. Police have said they were pursuing the idea that the murders happened after a botched robbery attempt.
