Chicago police take DNA from woman in lagoon case, probe possible link to missing Rockford boy.

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police trying to identify the dismembered toddler found in a lagoon this month have collected DNA from the relatives of children who have gone missing, including a young boy reported missing in Rockford.

But Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi would only say investigators are “cautiously optimistic” that the DNA from relatives of missing children would help them identify the remains. Chicago police released this statement, according to WREX-TV: “The Chicago Police Department is aware of the missing juvenile out of Rockford, Illinois.

The investigation is still open and ongoing.” KREX also reported that Kyrian’s mother, Lanisha Knox, was in the process of moving from Cedar Rapids, to Chicago. Earlier this month, the head, hands and feet of an African-American child between the ages of 2 and 4 years old were discovered in the lagoon at Garfield Park on the west side of Chicago.
