STATE’S ATTORNEY PATRICK KENNEALLY AND FIRST ASSISTANT STATE’S ATTORNEY RANDI FREESE WIN HEROES’ AWARD
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) has recognized Patrick Kenneally and Randi Freese for their outstanding efforts in safeguarding the well-being of children.
The Heroes’ Award is an annual accolade that honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the prevention and resolution of cases involving missing and exploited children.
While collaborating with the Crystal Lake Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Patrick Kenneally, State’s Attorney, and Randi Freese, First Assistant State’s Attorney, along with colleagues worked skillfully to resolve the appalling crime committed against AJ Freund in 2019.
Through their exceptional dedication, they secured lengthy prison sentences for the perpetrators.
Both Patrick and Randi continue to demonstrate their commitment to protecting children and supporting their families of McHenry County.

Laughable! ‘Jerk Off of The Year’ more believable.
There are ZERO heroes in this story!
Americans love nothing better, than these plucky, taxpayer funded lawyer overdog success stories.
The investigation that never happened is this
How Did Carlos Acosta get his job
was it through Jack Franks and Political patronage
all of the DCFS hiring methods should undergo thorough scrutiny
is he eligible for State Pension
Not everyone wins the parent lottery.
My cot posters at the orphanage, were William F. Buckley Jr and the 1919 Chicago White Sox, GOOD DAY TO YOOU SIR!
How much did the County tax payers have to shell out for this ‘award’?
These organizations do some good, but the overhead and salaries percentage compared to their revenues is very troubling.
They didn’t make the worst list, however:
“How much did the County tax payers have to shell out for this ‘award’?”
I stand corrected!
I guess they’re pretty good as charity, if this site is legit:
And they honestly admit a rather sobering detail about their business:
“Missing child cases are mostly “stranger abductions.”
“Before NCMEC was co-founded in 1984, it was often believed that strangers abducted most missing children. However, over the last 36 years, NCMEC has collected data from hundreds of thousands of cases, and we now know that the overwhelming majority of missing children reported are endangered runaways.
“The statistics tell us that last year, 91 percent of missing kids reported to NCMEC were children running away from home or foster care.
“The second highest rates of missing children were abducted by a family member who did not have custody. Less than one percent were nonfamily (stranger) abductions. ”
Mr. Mellow, did you actually FOIA the county treasurer or SA’s office to come up with your pronouncement?
No membership fee?
I agree Cindy. It’s just people trampling on the grave of this kid so Kennealy can add fodder to his resume and hang another plank on his office wall. He should be proud of how liberal hacks failed this child.
It seems to be the liberal way. God knows they don’t value the life of the unborn. They also don’t value the life of children. Adrenochrome is a high demand product in elite circles. But what do I know? Evil thrives in this world.
What is Kenneally’s fodder for his resume? He will never make minimum wage in private practice and McDonald’s would be his best option. Perhaps working on the street as ‘Jakki Awlf’ he could make $2.00 plus tip.
Slap definitely needs new schtick.
Weren’t you slapping Jumbo shtick on Halsted again last night Twinkie? You’re posting a little early do you must have finished performing your lip services early last night.
No one should get any reword this child and all children that have been tortured by their parents
AJ could have been saved and all the other children
They failed to protect our children sweet little children that have a life ahead of them and they failed to protect
No hero’s in this case
