Rochelle Police Investigate Child Murderer

Rochelle police arrest a man who they say failed to register on a state list of child murderers and violent offenders.

Josh W. Seany, 30, of Rochelle, was arrested today for failing to register as a murderer and violent offender against youth. The state maintains a database of child murderers and violent offenders.

Rochelle police were not available for comment, but according to the state's database of child murderers and violent offenders against youth, Seaney registered as early as February 2007. He was convicted in an incident with an infant in Kane County.

    It is too bad that this news release is completely false.. If you were to look him up on the website you would find that he is Not A Child Murderer.. Now that his life has been destroyed because people did not do there job and investigate the story. Also to know the whole truth as to why he is on this list would just amaze you.. He has NEVER hurt a child and never would.. There are always two sides to every story..
