TINLEY PARK, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities say the piles of clothing that were inside the former Lane Bryant store in Tinley Park where five women were murdered in 2008 will be donated to a women's prison and two nonprofits in Chicago's southern suburbs.
Tinley Park Mayor Ed Zabrocki said Saturday that Lane Bryant's parent company, Charming Shoppes Inc., is donating clothes that were in the front of the store, away from the crime scene.
The donation is in addition to 150 coats that are being distributed Friday by the South-Southwest Suburban United Way. Those coats were also donated by Charming Shoppes.
The clothes will go to the Dwight Correctional Center, a homeless agency called Together We Cope and the domestic violence nonprofit Crisis Center for South Suburbia.
