Chicago State’s Attorney Urges Alleged Victims To Help Build Case Against R. Kelly

Chicago State’s Attorney Urges Alleged Victims To Help Build Case Against R. Kelly

In addition to a Georgia District Attorney’s investigation into the famed singer, a Chicago prosecutor is now asking the alleged victims to come forward with information about R. Kelly.

Following Lifetime’s premiere of its six-part docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx held a press conference Wednesday (Jan. 8) to initiate an investigation, asking for the help of the survivors and witnesses.

While urging people to “please come forward,” Foxx also revealed that two families of missing women contacted her office, believing the two may reside in the Chicago area.

Furthermore, at this time there aren’t any new charges, but Foxx wishes to continue an investigation following the series.

So, she states:

I was sickened. I was sickened by the allegations, I was sickened as a survivor, I was sickened as a mother, I’m sickened as a prosecutor. I’ve worked in this office for a number of years including in 2008, and so the allegations were not new to me, but I think listening to survivors and giving the platform for survivors to tell their stories was heartbreaking.
