Joliet, Illinois – The girlfriend of a man suspected of going on a killing spree in Joliet has been charged with obstructing justice and destroying evidence. Kyleigh Cleveland-Singleton, who is the mother of the suspect’s three-year-old son, is facing these charges. Romeo Nance, the suspect, is believed to have shot and killed seven relatives and another man. Investigators have accused Cleveland-Singleton of making statements to prevent the apprehension of the suspect and obstruct the investigation into the killings.
On Monday night, police questioned Cleveland-Singleton about the deaths. It was that same night that Nance died of a self-inflicted gunshot after being pursued by U.S. Marshals in Texas. Cleveland-Singleton’s next court appearance in Will County is scheduled for today at 9 a.m.
The case has shocked the community and left many questions unanswered. The extent of Cleveland-Singleton’s involvement in the events leading up to Nance’s death remains unclear. Authorities are working to piece together the events and gather evidence to fully understand the tragic events that unfolded. At the same time, the community is grieving and trying to come to terms with the loss of their loved ones.
The tragic incident has once again brought the issue of gun violence to the forefront. The impact of such violence on families, communities, and society as a whole cannot be underestimated. As investigations continue and court proceedings unfold, the community waits for answers and seeks justice for the victims. The upcoming court appearance will provide more insight into the case and hopefully bring some closure to the affected families.
