Sources: Jail inmate secretly recorded suspect in Tyshawn’s slaying – Chicago Tribune

The Cook County Jail inmate charged with shooting 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee laughed as he described luring the boy from a playlot and shooting him, prosecutors alleged Tuesday.

Dwright Boone-Doty was secretly recorded by another inmate talking about the cold-blooded killing, law enforcement sources said. Prosecutors said Doty was out to avenge an earlier killing and shooting in a long-running gang war.

Doty told the other inmate that he originally planned to kidnap and torture the child by cutting off his fingers and ears, said Assistant State’s Attorney George Canellia. He also conducted surveillance on Tyshawn’s grandmother so he could kill her and draw out rival gang members, he said.

Doty lured Tyshawn out of a playlot by asking him if he wanted to go the store, according to Canellia. When the boy said he had no money, Doty said he would buy him whatever he wanted, the prosecutor said.
