The mother of Derrion Albert, the Fenger Academy High School honor student who was beaten to death near the South Side school last month, filed a petition Thursday asking the city to provide 911 recordings and any other materials regarding the teen's murder that would help prove her case against the city.
An-Janette Albert filed a subpoena for protective order in Cook County Circuit court that would preserve all police communications regarding the Sept. 24 murder, including audiotapes; radio communications; photographs; police reports; interview notes and written statements. The city is named as the sole defendant in the filing.
The subpoena aims to provide An-Janette Albert's lawyers with the materials needed to "prove their case," according to the petition. A lawsuit has not yet been filed in Derrion Albert's slaying.
Last month, Silvonus Shannon, 19; Eric Carson, 16; and Eugene Riley, 18, were charged with the murder of Albert, an innocent bystander in a fight between two groups of students near the Roseland neighborhood school, Cook County prosecutors said.
A fourth teen, Eugene Bailey , was also charged in the murder, but released Wednesday after the state's attorney's office dropped charges against him.
