Bloomington, Illinois -- UPDATE: Amy Leichtenberg files $10 million lawsuit against city; last spring her ex-husband Michael Connolly murdered their two sons
"In the wrongful death action filed in McLean County Court Tuesday, Amy Leichtenberg claims that delays by LeRoy police in issuing an Amber Alert allowed her ex-husband Michael Connolly to leave the area March 8, 2009, with Jack, 7, and Duncan, 9. The children were found about three weeks later in the back seat of their father's car in rural Putnam County. Connolly's body was found nearby."http://www.pantagraph.com/news/local/article_ce0d5eae-2c69-11df-bbf0-001cc4c002e0.html
