Woman Brutally Murders Landlord
Fox News reported that Sandra Kolalou, 36, has been charged with the first-degree murder of Frances Walker, who was her 69 year-old landlord. Other tenants in the home where Walker rented rooms out of heard screaming at around 2:30am on Monday. Though they received a reply when they texted Walker, police now say that this was actually Kolalou texting on the landlord’s phone.
“The residents were very cooperative. When they heard the scream, when they woke up in the morning, they immediately started texting the victim … started calling the victim,” said Chicago Police Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan. “The victim didn’t answer. There were some texts that were sent back from the victim’s phone. It appears from what we know now that the defendant was sending texts from the victim’s phone and not answering it.”
Officials indicate that upon their arrival at the home, they saw Kolalou approaching a two truck that was later revealed to have been paid for using her victim’s credit card. According to reports, the 36-year-old woman requested to trucker to driver her to Foster Beach so that her car could be towed. Kolalou’s fellow tenants were so concerned about the driver’s safety that they exchanged numbers with him. The tenants later told police that they had long been afraid of Kolalou, saying that they knew she was “dangerous,” according to My Fox 8.

Police Find Dismembered Body
When officers searched Foster Beach, they found bloody rags in a garbage can. They then searched Walker’s home, and it at first seemed like nothing was amiss. It was only when they opened the freezer that they found her dismembered body.
Kolalou was with the tow truck driver when the body was found, and police say that she threatened him with a knife. Officers were thankfully able to intervene before she could hurt him, and she was arrested immediately.
When police searched the entire house after Kolalou’s arrest, they found blood on knives and in Walker’s room. They believe that Kolalou used “large butcher knives” to dismember her landlord on the residence’s first floor, officials said. While no official motive for the killing has been given, police say that Kolalou had recently been served with an eviction notice.
CBS News reported that Kolalou has since been charged with one felony count each of first-degree murder and concealing a homicidal death, and one misdemeanor count of aggravated assault with the use of a deadly weapon. She is being held without bail.

Walker ‘Didn’t Have Any Enemies’
Walker’s brother Arnold told reporters that his sister’s dog was also killed in the incident. He mourned her sister as someone who was both generous and trusting.
“She didn’t have any enemies,” he said. “This is an exceptional circumstance. You’re talking about good and evil there. She was generous with her time. She helped the younger generation. She didn’t have children of her own, but wonderful with kids.”
“I can’t imagine a person who would kill another person like that,” his wife Maggie added.
Walker was a retiree who enjoyed playing the organ at several churches in her area. She had also played piano at the Evanston School of Ballet since 1978.
“We’re going to miss her terribly in so many ways,” said Evanston School of Ballet owner Kerry Hubata, adding that Walker rarely missed a weekend playing piano there.
“In fact, last Saturday morning, she said, ‘I just love being here.’ I said, ‘Well, we love having you,'” Hubata said. “It’s just so difficult to reconcile the fact that someone so kind and sweet and gentle could meet an end like this. It’s not fair for anyone – let alone Fran.”

This is just the latest in a long line of brutal crimes in the liberal-run city of Chicago. Here’s hoping that prosecutors throw the book at Kolalou, because she does not seem like someone who should be out on the streets as a free woman.
