    Sidne-Nichole Buchanan (27) was beaten to death after attending a concert

    https://www.chicagotribune.com/subur...lhm-story.html


    A Gary mother is pleading for any tips to locate her daughter missing since a July 27 Wiz Khalifa concert in Tinley Park, Ill.

    Sidne-Nichole Buchanan, 27, was last seen at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, authorities said. She was reported missing July 29. Buchanan was still missing on Monday, FBI spokeswoman Chris Bavender said.

    Authorities believe she was kidnapped and could be in danger. The FBI in Merrillville is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to her safe return.

    ?Our investigation has revealed that Sidne was last seen in Illinois but we have evidence that she was in Indiana after that,? FBI Supervisory Special Agent Mike Peasley said. ?The presumption is she was taken across state lines against her will until we find evidence to the contrary. The FBI is dedicating all of the resources available to us to find Sidne?

    Buchanan?s mother, Kaneka Turner, said she believed someone Buchanan knows could be responsible for her disappearance, but declined to elaborate further on the investigation. She last heard from her daughter via video chat from the concert, Turner said. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary, she said.

    Until recently, Buchanan worked as a dance instructor at Gary?s Beach Front Dance School, 427 S. Lake St., Turner said, teaching ballet, tap and modern dance. Her daughter also loves new experiences and traveling, she said.

    She is ?very happy, sweet, very good person,? Turner said.

    Buchanan is the oldest of five siblings, Turner said. The family is trying to protect her two children, an 11-year-old daughter and son, 9.

    ?She knows what?s going on,? Turner said of Buchanan?s daughter. ?Her son, we?re shielding him from everything.?

    Turner urged those responsible to release her daughter safely.

    Buchanan is 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 135 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a purple tank top dress, denim jacket and clear wedge shoes.

    Anyone with information can contact the FBI at 219-942-4655.

    The Cook County Medical Examiner has formally identified the body found in Thornton Lansing Road Forest Preserve as missing Gary woman Sidne-Nichole Buchanan. The FBI is seeking a person of interest in her death.

    The cause and manner of her death is pending, the Cook County Medical Examiner said.

    The FBI is looking to question 38-year-old James McGhee, of Gary about her disappearance. McGhee was the last person the 27-year-old was known to be with at a concert July 27 in Tinley Park.
    Investigators found Buchanan's body in the forest preserve Monday. An autopsy was performed Tuesday.

    While officials would at first only say they believed the body to be Buchanan's, her family said in a Facebook post that they are confident it is her.

    Court documents released Thursday detail the gruesome murder of a woman from Gary, Indiana.

    James McGhee, 38, of Gary, has been charged with murder in the death of Sidne-Nichole Buchanan, 27.

    McGhee is being held without bail.

    According to court documents, a friend of McGhee’s, who was given immunity for cooperating with the investigation, told authorities that he heard McGhee say “he lost it” and also showed him a picture of a woman believed to be Buchanan. McGhee reportedly told the friend “I beat her up bad. This is when she was living.”
    The friend told investigators, the day after the concert, McGhee wanted him to help him clean up his Gary apartment. When he went inside, he saw the place in disarray, blood on mattresses and what appeared to be the body of a person concealed in black plastic bags. The friend went with McGee to dump the body
    in the Thornton Lansing Road Nature Preserve and he took investigators to that location where Buchanan’s remains were recovered this week.

    McGhee received three years of probation in a plea deal after he was accused in 2017 of kicking and punching his girlfriend who was pregnant with quadruplets. She lost three of the babies. He was also later charged with kidnapping the woman, but the attorney who represented him says the kidnapping charge was dropped.

    McGhee was taken into custody Wednesday evening on 80/94 in Hammond, Ind.

    I'm glad that she was found. He's a huge piece of shit. I can only imagine how many other women that he's abused.

    Take a look at her FB. She posted a live video from the concert showing she was with him. I think she wanted to leave a clue in case something happened. My friends and I used to do similar things for safety if we were going out with a new guy.
