Who killed Brittany Battaglia

He has not been charged with murder, but more charges may be filed, police said, reports NBC Chicago. On June 2, around 6:30 p.m. m., Battaglia told her roommate that she was going to her boyfriend’s nearby Logan Square apartment and then to a party, Pekara said at the news conference. When Battaglia was unable to return home, her roommate tried to contact Battaglia’s brother, but she was unable to reach him, reports WGN9.

Later, her brother found out that Battaglia never went to the party. On Sunday, he and Battaglia’s roommate reported her missing. Later that day, police, armed with a search warrant, went to Silva’s apartment where they allegedly found two machetes, Pakera said. “During the search, the large duffel bag in the bedroom was searched,” Pekara said. “The victim’s body was found inside that bag.” “Later, the medical examiner’s office determined that the victim had died from multiple stab wounds and nearly severed her head,” he added.


They allegedly found a tarp, trash bags, cleaning supplies and a note that read: “Can you ask the average time until I smell?” prosecutors said, reports CBS Chicago. During a traffic stop, police searched Silva and allegedly found him with an ice pick and two pocket knives, ABC7 reports.

Detectives escorted Silva back to his apartment and told him to stay outside because it was considered a suspicious crime scene, reports ABC7. They detained him when he tried to enter the apartment through a back staircase, police said, according to the outlet.

Battaglia’s roommate, Quamieshia Greathouse, told ABC7 that on Friday night, Battaglia told her that she would go to Silva’s apartment to cook him dinner. Greathouse knew something was wrong when she didn’t hear from Battaglia, especially since she had plans to leave town, ABC7 reports.


“I specifically waited to see if she would come home and pack for her trip, because that’s something she definitely wouldn’t miss,” she told ABC7. “And when I realized she wasn’t going to make it on time for that flight, I knew right away something was terribly wrong. I definitely warned her about this person, but Brittany’s nature is to see the good in everyone.”

Silva pleaded guilty to criminal sexual assault stemming from a 2009 case and was sentenced to 2 years probation, reports CBS Chicago. He was ordered held without bail in connection with Battaglia’s death. He is scheduled to return to court on June 20. It is not clear if he has retained an attorney who can speak on his behalf.Read More……
