A single mother of three, Katona-King was a dedicated church deacon. She led a volunteer effort to feed the homeless in Logan Square at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, where she became a member in 1985 after the congregation showed her so much compassion during her nephew’s funeral. She loved the church and lived in a small apartment next door.
On Monday, Katona-King’s life ended tragically at a CTA train station.
At about 4:20 p.m., the 68-year-old who always took public transportation was on her way home from work when a robber ripped an iPhone away from another woman at the Fullerton L stop. As the man fled — pushing his way through the rush hour crowd — he shoved Katona-King down a flight of metal stairs.4:20 p.m. on a Monday. In Lincoln Park, at the L stop that is right by DePaul University. In other words, this is not the ghetto.
This woman is dead over an iPhone. Let's hope it has the "Find My iPhone" app on it, because they still haven't caught this loser. What the hell is wrong with people? As a point of reference, there were no murders in Lincoln Park in 2010.
