Gilani Day’s mother explained to Chicago Sun-Times report: “There were no organs missing”
Poria, Illinois (WMBD) – A Report in the Chicago Sun-Times Photographed details revealed the condition of Gilani Dai’s body.
In September, Dai’s body was found in the Illinois River in Peru before it was identified about three weeks later.
On Monday, Gilani’s mother, Carmen Bolden-Day, explained some of what was revealed in that report by the Chicago Sun-Times. In the article, according to the Day family and their attorney Hallie Besner, Day’s body was found without eyeballs.
The Sun Times also reported that the family’s forensic specialist was unable to find a brain or other organs, including Day’s liver or spleen. Besner said a pathology report for Coroner’s office in LaSalle County showed the organs were “totally fluid.”
The Chicago Sun-Times report received a lot of backlash on social media, with many people calling for justice and some questioning exactly what happened to Day.
In response to these concerns, Dai’s mother said in a statement:
WMBD attempted to contact Coroner’s LaSalle County office regarding the Sun Times report and received no response.
Bloomington Police said the LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office was continuing to lead the investigation into Gilani’s death, which it said was continuing.
WMBD has also reached out to Gilani’s mother for further comments and awaits a response.
