Good morning, Chicago —
Here’s the latest from the area this morning.
The Saturday afternoon service for Jelani Day was “unquestionably a celebration of the life” of the 25-year-old Illinois State University graduate student despite the mystery surrounding his disappearance and death. “Some things no mother should have to endure,” John Fountain wrote in his latest column on Day.
Meanwhile in the city, Chicago Park District Supt. Michael Kelly resigned over the weekend after Mayor Lori Lightfoot called for him to be fired with cause for his handling of the district’s misconduct scandal.
And thousands of runners returned to the city streets Sunday for the 43rd edition of the Chicago Marathon, which didn’t happen last year due to the pandemic. Seifu Tura Abdiwak and Ruth Chepngetich won the elite races.
Get even more news below, and thanks for reading.
