IRYANA VAUGHN - 2 yo - Racine WI / Chicago IL alerted

Post by TomTerrific0420 on Thu Feb 09, 2012 4:24 am

RACINE, Wis.—
Authorities are asking for the public's help in
locating a 2-year-old child whose mother was found dead at their home in Racine.

Police believe the girl is with her father, 25-year-old Iryin
Vaughn. Investigators say he left the home with the child, Iryana
Vaughn, shortly before officers were called there about 11 p.m. Tuesday.

Law enforcement has issued
emergency child abduction alert called an Amber Alert. Racine Sgt.
Marvin Pavilonis (pav-il-OH'-nus) says Vaughn is from the Chicago area
and may be headed there. Pavilonis says Vaughn is a person of interest
in the death of the child's mother. He says the death of the 27-year-old
woman is being investigated as a homicide.

Police say the father and child may be in a 1998 blue Ford Explorer with the Illinois license plate L320-893.

RACINE — Police were working Wednesday to extradite a Racine man
back from Chicago amid an investigation into the fatal stabbing of
a woman with whom he lived and his alleged abduction of their
2-year-old daughter.

An Amber Alert was issued early Wednesday morning after Racine
police were called at about 11:10 p.m. Tuesday to the apartment of
27-year-old Gwynevere L. Wright. A neighbor called 911 to report an
assault had occurred at the upper-level apartment at 900 Racine St.
and Wright’s toddler was missing, Police Sgt. Marty Pavilonis said.

The alert was canceled within hours after Chicago police found
the Racine toddler, Iryana Vaughn, and her 25-year-old father,
Iryin Vaughn. She was found unharmed with him at about 5:47 a.m. at
a residence on Chicago’s South Side in the 9800 block of Yates
Avenue, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.

“I understand it’s a relative’s residence,” Perez said, adding
they were found inside. “(Iryin Vaughn) is in police custody.”

Perez and Pavilonis said Vaughn is expected to be extradited
back to Wisconsin, but Pavilonis said it is unknown when Vaughn may be returned.

Wright’s death is being investigated as a homicide, Pavilonis
said. Vaughn remains a person-of-interest in Wright’s death, he said.

Rich Chiapete, Racine County deputy district attorney, said it
is unlikely Vaughn could be charged as early as Thursday.

Wright’s 12-year-old son reportedly was in the Racine apartment
during the alleged Tuesday night attack and ran to a neighbor’s for
help after Vaughn left with the boy’s younger sister. Pavilonis —
who declined to comment on the person inside the apartment with
Wright and Iryana during the attack — said only that this person wasn’t harmed.

“We’re still working through that part of the investigation. I
don’t have any details that we can release at this point,” he told The Journal Times.

Wright’s landlord, Larry Zamba, said he was shocked when he
heard about the slaying at about 1 a.m. Wednesday after receiving a
call from the tenant who lives below Wright and her two children.

He said they had lived in the flat for about a year and he
remembered talking with Wright’s son when he went to the apartment to make repairs.

“I tried to be a positive role model. I would say, ‘Hey can you
help me hold the screwdriver,’” Zamba said. “The little girl, she
was really cute. She would always come up with a smile or a wave.
(They were) very nice people. I felt just terrible when I heard
about it. You kind of establish a relationship with them.”

Investigators say Vaughn left the Racine Street apartment with
his daughter shortly before officers were summoned.

Iryana was checked Wednesday morning at Comer Children’s
Hospital at the University of Chicago “as a precautionary measure,”
Perez said. She was in good health and returned to Wisconsin,
Pavilonis said. Her whereabouts were not disclosed.

A woman reached Wednesday evening — at a Chicago number once
listed for Wright — declined comment.
Pavilonis told The Journal Times that police have been called to
the couple’s address several times this year already.
Zamba said he didn’t learn of Wright and Vaughn’s troubled
relationship until August, when Vaughn allegedly ran Wright over
with his Ford Explorer, hospitalizing her for several weeks.
Afterward, Zamba said he asked Vaughn to stay away from the property.

Cook County court records also show that in the past few years,
Vaughn has been convicted of a variety of offenses, including
domestic battery, aggravated assault, resisting a peace officer and retail theft.

“Does it surprise me? No. Am I am shocked by what happened? Yes,” Zamba said.

Anyone with information may contact the Racine Police
Department’s investigations unit at (262) 635-7756 or call Crime
Stoppers of Racine County at (262) 636-9330. Residents also may
submit a tip via email through the website at
www.racine.crimestoppersweb.com. Text messages should be sent to
CRIMES (274637) and type in RACS (7227) with your text message.
