A toddler died of child abuse on Feb. 15.

For the following five days no one would be murdered in Chicago.

This would change on Feb. 20.

That night the Tribunes’s Adam Sege reported that a 23-year-old man was shot to death in the West Side’s South Austin neighborhood.

To date, this was the longest period without a reported murder in 2014.
