Files on Koschman death vanish, reappear
A new mystery is clouding the investigation into a deadly fight involving former Mayor Richard Daley’s nephew.
R.J. Vanecko is facing an involuntary manslaughter charge for throwing the punch that killed David Koschman outside a night club on Division St. 2004.
But now the Chicago Sun-Times reports, some critical files on the Vanecko case were removed from Chicago Police Department records for six months in 2011; then they mysteriously reappeared.
Investigators don’t know who took the files out, or why, or who put them back.
