CAIRO, Ill. (AP) — Illinois State Police have identified two female employees killed during a southern Illinois bank robbery.
Authorities on Friday said 52-year-old Anita J. Grace of Olive Branch and 52-year-old Nita J. Smith of Wickliffe, Kentucky, died in the Thursday robbery. A third, 23-year-old female employee was not identified but reported to be in critical condition.
Authorities say a suspect approached the women as the bank was closing. They say he forced them back inside the bank where Cairo police found the victims. All suffered stab wounds.
