Here we are talking about After Highland Park Parade Shooter. The situation has been brought to the attention of the office of the state’s attorney, according to authorities with the sheriff’s department, who verified that the Highland Park parade shooter recently made a hoax call to a news reporter from the jail.
Robert E. Crimo III, age 22, of Highwood is being charged with 21 counts of first-degree murder, 48 counts of attempted murder, and 48 counts of aggravated violence with a firearm. All of these charges are stacked on top of each other.
Since July 6, he has been detained in the Lake County Jail without the possibility of posting a bond. It was claimed on Saturday by the New York Post that Crimo called one of their reporters from the jail on New Year’s Eve at eight o’clock eastern standard time (EST).
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office verified to Lake and McHenry County Scanner that the call was placed by Crimo, who was using the inmate telephone system. This information was provided to them by Lake and McHenry County Scanner.

According to Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, the call was made using the inmate telephone system, which means that the entire conversation was captured on the recording.
When the reporter finally picked up the phone, they were greeted with the customary message that the call was coming from a Lake County jail facility. According to what Covelli stated, the automated greeting first asked the reporter whether he wanted to continue the call, at which point the reporter consented to the conditions of the agreement.
After that, the reporter said, “Hello?” and Crimo responded with the same. “Hello.” Again, the reporter greeted everyone by asking, “Hello?” and Crimo’s response was to inquire as to whether or not the refrigerator was operating. The journalist responded with “Uh, yeah…why?” And Crimo responded by saying, “Well, you had better go catch it.”
Covelli stated that both parties involved laughed after Crimo hung up the phone. According to the Post, the writer had made an effort in the past to schedule an interview with Crimo in the month of December.
Even though there was never any intention of conducting the interview, Crimo went ahead and dialed the reporter’s number in order to pull the prank on them. According to Covelli, neither the reporter nor the New York Post informed the sheriff’s office about the telephone call they had received.
“We have the capacity to ban inmates from calling specific telephone lines; however, we are only able to block numbers when we receive an order from the Court or a request from someone in particular,” Covelli explained. It is not possible to entirely revoke an inmate’s phone privileges without an order from the court. Since then, the call has been forwarded to the office of the state’s attorney so that they can conduct an investigation into it.
Prior to opening fire on the gathering on July 4 near Second Street and Central Avenue in Highland Park, the prosecution stated that Crimo admitted to “looking down his sights” of his Smith & Wesson M&P 15 semi-automatic rifle.
Ben Dillon, an assistant state’s attorney for Lake County, stated that according to what Crimo told investigators, he fired two full 30-round magazines before loading a third 30-round magazine and discharging it.
Seven people were shot to death, while many more were injured in the shooting. 83 empty bullet casings were located at the scene of the incident. Katherine Goldstein, 64, of Highland Park; Irina McCarthy, 35, of Highland Park; Kevin McCarthy, 37, of Highland Park; Jacquelyn Sundheim, 63, of Highland Park; Stephen Straus, 88, of Highland Park; Nicolas Toledo-Zaragoza, 78, of Morelos, Mexico; and Eduardo Uvaldo, 69, of Waukegan were the seven people who were killed in this tragedy.
According to the authorities, Crimo evacuated the roof while disguised as a lady, dropped the weapon, and then escaped with the mob that was running away. Dillon stated that Crimo was able to identify himself on the security video and the firearm that was used. Since then, seven counts of reckless conduct causing serious bodily damage have been filed against Crimo’s father, Robert Crimo Jr., by the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office. When Crimo Jr. assisted his son in obtaining a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card, prosecutors and officers from the Highland Park police department allege that he engaged in conduct that constituted criminal recklessness.

According to the prosecution, the fact that the defendant assisted his son in obtaining a FOID card was a contributing cause to the injuries that were sustained by the victims of the mass shooting that took place on July 4. Crimo III, the man’s son, was under the age of 21 when he attempted to receive the FOID card and required his father’s assistance in the application process in order to do so.
