17-year-old Eva Casara of Calumet City was found Christmas Day with a gun shot wound to the back of the head between two condo buildings in suburban Dolton. Casara was 5 months pregnant.

The family named the baby, Lealani Paris Casara. She is in critical condition at the hospital in Oak Lawn.
Police say they are using social media detective work and surveillance video to track the killer down.
Friday afternoon, the Dolton Police Chief said he expected an arrest in the next 24 hours.
