>>Krokodil User Says She's "Scared To Death"
(Joliet, IL) -- At least five people in Joliet have been treated for taking a flesh-eating drug, known as Krokodil. Most of the patients are between 18 and 25 years old and two of the victims are sisters. Angie Neitzel tells ABC News in Chicago that she had to have emergency surgery last week to try to save her legs. She says she's "scared to death" and that she can "barely leave her house" now. Neitzel says she didn't know she'd taken Krokodil, which is a deadly heroin substitute that causes the skin to rot from the inside out.
>>Man Who Killed Illinois Woman To Be Executed
(Raiford, FL) -- A Florida man is set to die by lethal injection. William Happ was convicted in 1989 for killing Angie Crowley, an Oregon, Illinois native. Crowley was taking a road-trip across Florida back in 1986 when she stopped at a small store to meet a friend. Instead, she ran into Happ,
who kidnapped and raped her before dumping her body into a canal. He's slated for execution in a Florida State Prison tomorrow.
>>No Guns Allowed Signs Should Be Up Soon
(Springfield, IL) -- It won't be too long before people start seeing "No Guns Allowed" signs across the state. Businesses and private property owners will be required to post the signs if they want to keep guns out. The sign is similar to the "No Smoking" sign. But, instead of a cigarette, it's a picture of a black handgun inside a red circle with a slash across it. The signs are required to be clearly posted on the premises or at building entrances.
>>Quinn Gets First-Hand Look At Harrisburg Tornado Recovery
(Harrisburg, IL) -- The city of Harrisburg is thriving again, about a year-and-a-half after a tornado ripped through the town causing millions of dollars in damages. Governor Quinn stopped through the area yesterday to get a first-hand look at the progress. He credits state and local governments for helping with a speedy recovery, but Quinn says the people of southern Illinois are the real heroes. He says they stepped up immediately to look for neighbors or help the people who'd lost everything in the Leap Day storm last year.
