Parents tell NBC 5 they’re shocked a mass murderer recently released from prison moved in right across the street from a suburban elementary school.
_______, 77, just got out of prison after serving time for killing five people in a Yorkville restaurant in 1972. Neighbors say he’s living in a La Grange home with a family who took him in as part of an outreach program with their Hinsdale church. The home is across the street from Seventh Avenue School.
“How could a sex offender you know, have rules but someone who’s a mass murderer, it’s OK to live right across from a school?” a local mother asked.
A few neighbors disagree, telling NBC 5 off-camera that Reimann should get a second chance since he served his time. But most want to see a change.
“There should be a law that will prevent anyone with a record like that from living near schools,” a parent said.
The state’s Violent Offender Against Youth Registry requires Reimann to tell them where he’s living and prevents him from going onto school property because one of the five people shot to death was only 16.
