Steven Cannon’s death, like his life, was surrounded by chaos.
When he was murdered, he was partying with a small group of lifelong family friends, but the evening ended with an alcohol-fueled brawl. It’s been 8 months and his murder remains unsolved.
A ‘typical’ murder
In many ways the murder of Steven Cannon is typical of many killings in Chicago. Cannon was a black man under 35 who lived in a poor neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago and had gang ties and a criminal record. But family and friends say he was more than just a gang member. They describe Cannon as a nice person who got into some trouble but was also a loving son and father.
