Death decade after West Side beating ruled a homicide

The death this week of a woman beaten up more than a decade ago in the East Garfield Park neighborhood has been ruled a homicide, authorities said.

Shantil Moore, 28, who had been living at a nursing home in the 2400 block of West Touhy Avenue, was pronounced dead at Kindred North Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Following an autopsy today, the medical examiner’s office determined Moore had died from sepsis due to complications of cervico-spinal injuries suffered in an assault, and her death was ruled a homicide.

The victim had suffered head and body injuries following an attack suffered about 11:45 p.m. Aug. 4, 2003, in the 200 block of North Homan Avenue, and had been initially hospitalized at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, said Police News Affairs Sgt. Antoinette Ursitti.

The attack, which appeared to be domestic in nature, took place on the street at that location, according to a police database.

No one has been charged in the attack, and Area North detectives were investigating, Ursitti said. Court and police records also indicate there were no charges brought at the time of the attack.
