Offender Ronald Macon

In 2003, Ronald Macon was convicted of three murders and one criminal sexual assault.

Ronald Macon was arrested for a felony charge on three separate occasions in 1998.  If Illinois required him to give a DNA sample after his first felony arrest in 1998, a DNA match could have been obtained with the DNA evidence recovered from his first murder, thereby identifying him as the offender and the subsequent two murders and one criminal sexual assault would have been prevented.

Inmate Is Charged In 3 Chicago Killings

The New York Times

Tuesday, October 12, 1999

A man awaiting trial in a rape case has been charged with killing three women on the city's South Side, in what the police call their first big break in the search for a serial killer who has been preying on poverty-stricken neighborhoods.

The police said DNA evidence from a string of unsolved killings and rapes had led them to Ronald Macon.

Mr. Macon, 35, who has been in jail since August in a separate rape case, was charged on Sunday with three counts of first-degree murder.

Comdr. Frank Trigg of the Police Department said Mr. Macon had confessed to the three killings.

The authorities said their investigations would continue in a neighborhood where at least 10 similar slayings have occurred over the last six years.

The three victims in the Macon case were all killed this year in the Englewood and Washington Park neighborhoods.

Angelnetta Peeples, 43, was found in an abandoned building on Feb. 20. She had been strangled and hit on the head. Linda Soloman, 36, who was found on April 14 in a stairwell, also had been strangled and hit on the head. Rosezina Williams, 50, was strangled and her body found in a trash container on June 21.

The authorities said Mr. Macon could face the death penalty if he is convicted of murder.

He was already being held in lieu of $1.25 million bond in a rape case.

 
 

Ronald Macon

October 11, 1999

In what detectives hailed as a major break in their investigation of four separate strings of killings of South Side women since 1993, Ronald Macon was charged in the deaths of Angelnetta Peeples, Linda Soloman and Rosezina Williams.

Nine murders and three sexual assaults remain unsolved. Macon strangled the three women on the South Side after buying crack cocaine for them and having sex with them.

Assistant State's Attorney Pat McGuire said witnesses told police the last person seen with Peeples was a man named "Ron."

Police developed information leading to Macon, 35, who has been in Cook County Jail since August 9 on unrelated sexual assault charges. Chicago police are puzzled at why a DNA sample from Macon was not contained in a computerized DNA databank designed to help detectives sex crimes, though the alleged serial killer was sitting in jail on charges he raped his former baby-sitter.
