Koschman lawyers: Release transcripts

Heartburn Relief! Relief!

A New Look for

Attorneys for the family of David Koschman on Tuesday asked a judge to release transcripts of interviews that investigators recently conducted with Koschmans friends and other witnesses. Cook County States Attorney Anita Alvarez included portions of those interviews in her objection to Nanci Koschmans request that a special prosecutor re-examine what happened to her son, who died in 2004 following a drunken confrontation with a group that included Richard J. R.J. Vanecko, a nephew of thenMayor Richard M. Daley. Koschman family attorney Locke E. Bowman says he should be allowed to review the full transcripts, portions of which Alvarez referenced in an obvious attempt to make the principal witness to the confrontation appear biased and not credible. Alvarez violated confidentiality laws by disclosing the interviews, which were

conducted by investigators for City of Chicago Inspector General Joseph Ferguson, Bowman wrote in his motion to Cook County Judge Michael Toomin. There are, of course, a number of serious concerns raised by the States Attorneys participation in an investigative process that (intentionally or not) may have, among other things, compromised any future prosecution of Richard Vanecko, Bowman wrote. Alvarezs office declined to comment. Both sides are set to appear before Toomin on Friday. Nanci Koschman is asking Toomin to appoint a special prosecutor to re-open her sons homicide investigation, claiming Alvarez has a conflict of interest. She wants that outside investigation to also determine if the Chicago Police Department and states attorneys office decided not to charge Vanecko because his uncle was the mayor. The police took a new look at the case early last year, concluding Vanecko punched Koschman but that no criminal charges should be filed because Vanecko acted in self-defense.
