Koschman mom sues cops, city, Daley nephew in son’s death
The mother of a man killed by a nephew of former Mayor Richard M. Daley is suing law enforcement officials and several others connected to the case.
David Koschman died in 2004 after being punched during a confrontation near a Division Street bar.
Richard Vanecko pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter earlier this year and is now serving a 60-day jail sentence.
A Chicago Sun-Times investigation revealed officers may have been involved in hiding facts and creating phony evidence to cover up Vanecko’s reponsibility in Koschman’s death.
Vanecko, the City of Chicago, former Police Superintendent Phil Cline, Cook County, State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, and more than a dozen police officers are also named in the case.
Lawyers for the Koschman family say they plan to question members of the Daley family.
