FBI: Man charged in death of Gary, Indiana mother of 2

August 15, 2019

THORNTON, Ill. (AP) — An Indiana man has been charged in the death of a Gary, Indiana woman who disappeared last month after attending a concert in Illinois.

FBI spokesman Chris Bavender announced Wednesday that James McGhee faces a murder charge in Lake County, Indiana in the death of 27-year-old Sidney-Nichole Buchanan.

The 38-year-old McGhee was being described as a person of interest in the woman’s disappearance before he was arrested by the FBI and Indiana State Police as he crossed into state from Illinois.

FBI officials said the agency’s investigation revealed the mother of two was seen in Indiana after the July 27 concert in Tinley Park, and the presumption was she was taken across state lines against her will.

Buchanan’s body was found in the Thornton-Lansing Road Forest Preserve south of Chicago. The Cook County medical examiner’s office said Wednesday the cause of her death has not been determined pending further testing.
