Murder suspect grew frustrated when UIC student didnít react to his catcalls

A parolee charged with killing a University of Illinois at Chicago honor student spotted her as she walked alone past a CTA Blue Line stop on campus early Saturday morning and grew angered when she ignored his repeated attempts to talk, Cook County prosecutors alleged Tuesday.

As Ruth George reached her car in a UIC parking garage, prosecutors said, Donald Thurman grabbed her around the neck from behind and put her in a chokehold. With his arm still wrapped around her neck, Thurman dragged an unconscious George to her car and threw her in the back seat, where he sexually assaulted her, prosecutors said.

At a bond hearing at the Leighton Criminal Court Building, Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy said surveillance cameras captured Thurman following George into the parking garage. The two did not know each other, he said.

Investigators recovered a palm print from George’s car that matched Thurman and seized from Thurman’s home a distinctive white jacket he was seen wearing in the video, Murphy said.

Thurman confessed to physically attacking and sexually assaulting George, though he denied having intercourse with her, according to the prosecutor.

Police also found a discarded condom in George’s car.

Judge Charles Beach II ordered that Thurman be held in custody without bail. He faces up to life in prison if convicted of first-degree murder and criminal sexual assault.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office has ruled that George, 19, died from strangulation.

In a statement released Tuesday morning, George’s mother, who asked not to be named, offered a brief but aching remembrance of her daughter, a UIC sophomore.

IL abolished its Death Penalty.

I believe this pond scum only served 2 years of an armed robber sentence, which usually commands 10-15.

He got three years for armed robbery, while Blogovich gets 12 years for trying to sell a Senate seat.

Accused and victim are both of the ethic group involved in most Chicago killings.

I pity anyone exposed to these savages; sounds like the victim was working towards bigger & better things. Prayers for her and her family.

And if she had responded to his catcalls? He would have been angry that she’d led him on.

I hate stupid murderers most. For a few minutes of forced sex, or a short joy ride in a stolen car, or a little beer money, someone else has to lose her life, her family to live without her.

And the killer is caught in a few days, and his life ends in jail, and his family loses too, more the pity if there’s any good in them.

Stupid brain all impulse, all want now, no sense of consequences or empathy.

Why should anybody have to pay to keep this oxygen thief alive and his taxpayer provided attorney filing dozens of appeals over the next 30 years?
