Chicago girl gang raped on Facebook Live now receiving threats

A Chicago girl who was gang raped on Facebook Live has had to be relocated after receiving threats.

Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said that the girl and her family had been offered relocation services. Guglielmi went on to say, through the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, that the girl is “in a safe place.”

The girl was reunited with her family on Tuesday after she was kidnapped and gang-raped, with the entire ordeal being filmed and posted to Facebook Live as 40 people watched live and did nothing about it. Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson became aware of the situation when the girl’s mother stopped him as he was leaving the police station and showed him still images from the Facebook Live video.

According to the girl’s mother, though, the threats have not stopped since her daughter was returned home. She told the Associated Press that people on Facebook said “they are going to get her” and that children in the neighborhood had laughed about the incident and would ring their doorbell asking to see the girl.

According to Guglielmi, police have “directed special attention” to the family’s home.

The girl and her mother have been working with police in the investigation to find those responsible for the horrendous ordeal, but as of Friday, no arrests have yet been made in the case.
