Whitlock Walks

January 09, 2008

Herb Whitlock (left) served 20 years of a life sentence before being released from prison Tuesday. His co-defendant, Randy Steidl, was set free in 2004. In both cases, the men were released after prosecutors decided they didn't have enough time to get a case together by the deadline imposed by judges. The release of both men makes the 1986 deaths of Dyke and Karen Rhoads in Paris, Illinois an unsolved double-murder. AM 580's Jeff Bossert spoke with Chicago Tribune reporter Hal Dardick, who has followed the story since 2005.
