Mark Borowski was just 14 years old when his sister Lorry Ann was abducted, tortured and murdered by the Chicago Ripper Crew in 1982.

“My sister’s murderer has violated the laws of God and man,” he says.

Four men were convicted of killing Lorry Ann and more than a dozen other women.

One was executed, two are serving long prison terms and the fourth, Thomas Kokoraleis, was scheduled to be out on parole Friday.

But prison officials say he has no place to live just yet.

“He has to submit in the location in which he intends to reside and that has to be approved,” attorney Gloria Allred says. “If it’s not approved he’s going to stay in custody.”

To keep him behind bars prosecutors would need to file a petition to prove Kokoraleis is still sexually violent and he would need to register as a sex offender.

Lorry Ann was 21 years old, living and working in Elmhurst, before she was kidnapped. Years later, concern remains over the potential release of her convicted killer.

“The thought of seeing him in a grocery store or watching him pull up in a car as I cross the street makes my skin crawl,” said friend Cindy Arndt.

The DuPage county states attorney declined to comment on Kokoraleis or any possible petition.

“No one should have to endure the thought that the murderer of our dear Lorry Ann will soon be free,” Mark Borowski says.
