Who is Brittany Kinlow ?

A 23-year-old woman was days away from graduating from college when she was ambushed outside an elevator in her own Edgewater apartment building and shot to death this week.

Just hours later, police said they also found a man dead inside the same building. Police were trying to determine Tuesday night if the two deaths in 24 hours in a building are connected.

As CBS 2’s Marissa Perlman reported Tuesday, Brittany Kinlow’s family said she had just finished finals. Kinlow’s family was still in shock: we were told her murder was too recent to speak on camera as they mourn a young woman whose bright future was cut short.

Kinlow was a member of the jazz ensemble at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a professor of music at the School of Rock at Park Ridge.

The family told us that Kinlow had just finished final exams Monday afternoon and was leaving her home at Belle Shore Apartments, 1062 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., to go to work.

Family

Kinlow’s family was told that she met another man at her apartment building. After a brief exchange, as she walked away near the first-floor elevator, she was shot.

Police said they found her at 1:22 p.m. Monday.

Neighbors said they heard the shots from above but didn’t realize she was so close.

“My bed is right next to the window and I heard what I assumed was a gunshot,” said neighbor Jennifer Culajay.

The family received a call from Kinlow’s employer. She never got to work.

And then early Tuesday morning, a 22-year-old man was found dead inside the same apartment building. Police returned Tuesday to execute a search warrant.

Neighbors are now concerned, with two investigations so close to home in such a short time.

“I was very worried, because I have a teenager, and sometimes he is here with me on weekends, and I leave him here for a little while,” said neighbor Hugo Torres. “I freaked out. Honestly, I freaked out.”

“I had no idea about any of this, so it’s super shocking,” Culajay added.

Kinlow was ready to graduate in just a few days. Her family says that they will remember her positive spirit, her talent and her bright smile.

Both families said police said it is still investigating whether the two Belle Shore deaths are connected, only saying no one is in custody at this time.
