Banks’s body was discovered on December 9, 2023, in the suburban city of Riverdale. The details of her demise are nothing short of harrowing, as reports from Chicago media reveal that she was not only stabbed and beaten severely but also set on fire.
“When she decided to live that life that’s when things got bad,” he said, acknowledging the challenges that come with addiction.
Despite the difficulties, Banks would regularly reach out to her father, sharing the tumultuous events of her life.
The accused individuals are identified as Scotty Jobe-Scott, 30, Keith Bassett, 55, and Latoya Laramore-Milons, 39.
The shocking details presented in court further unveiled the disturbing circumstances surrounding her death.
Prosecutors disclosed that Laramore-Milons had a song titled “Killing the Rats” on her phone, which was played during the incident to drown out the sounds of Banks’s screams as she endured the fatal attack.
Additionally, prosecutors highlighted that Laramore-Milons had conducted online searches related to “murder and burned body” prior to the gruesome event.
