You recall that cabbie who was killed by a passenger who ran him over with his own taxi? The alleged culprit turned himself in. It was a city employee: Michael L. Jackson, who worked in the STD, HIV and AIDS division of the Chicago Department of Public Health. UPDATE: Blogger "Duff" at GirlReaction was a witness to the murder, and tells her story here, with more commentary here.
