News from the Illinois Valley

Rita Crundwell case coming to Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on June 3, 2015

A multi-million dollar scandal not far from the Illinois Valley is the topic of a luncheon at Starved Rock Lodge.

Former Dixon Mayor Jim Burke will talk about the Rita Crundwell embezzlement case after lunch Thursday at the lodge. Burke just started his fourth term when he says the city clerk showed him a secret bank account. After telling investigators about the account, Comptroller Rita Crundwell was hauled away in handcuffs. Burke plans to give a first hand account of the scandal that made national news.

If you want to hear Burke, its $20 if you’re a chamber member or $25 if not. That price includes a lunch.

You’re asked to register in advance. The event starts at 11.
