Windy City Rollers Fri Dec 10 2010
Yesterday afternoon, the Windy City Rollers announced that one of their skaters, Yvonne Johnson Hammer, had indeed been found dead earlier that day. The following statement was posted on their website and Facebook page.
Dear Windy City Rollers friends, family and fans:
It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing of our league mate, Yvonne Johnson Hammer ("Hammer"). As her death is still being actively investigated, please pass any information you think might be relevant to her disappearance directly to the Chicago Police Department. The Windy City Rollers are unable to provide any further information at this time, but we will be sure to reach out to you on behalf of Yvonne's friends and family in the coming days.
Hammer joined our league in June of 2010 and had not yet had the opportunity to play her first public game as a member of the Double Crossers, so she may not be familiar to some of you. However, her league members will always remember her for her ready smile, her amazing work ethic, and her extraordinary athleticism. We know that you will keep Hammer and her family in your hearts during this difficult time.
The Windy City Rollers
