Body Of Girl Found Dead In Alley Identified As Takaylah Tribitt, Missing 14-Yr-Old From Chicago

The body of a teenage girl that was discovered in an alley in September has now been identified as 14-year-old Takaylah Tribitt

Takaylah had been last seen on September 1 in the 1100 block of North Noble Street.

Her body was initially described as a teenage Jane Doe and was discovered in an alleyway near 20th Ave and Pennsylvania St by utility workers on September 16. 

The coworkers of the utility workers who discovered Takaylah’s body said the teen was found tied to a newly-placed utility pole, and they believed she had been beaten to death. However, a Medico-Legal Death Investigation Team ruled that the girl had died of a gunshot wound and she was not found tied to a utility pole. 

The manner of the girl’s death was a homicide.

In a statement, Lake County, Indiana Sheriff Oscar Martinez Jr. said his department was actively pursuing several leads on both sides of the Illinois-Indiana state line in search of suspects and information.
