CHICAGO (AP) - Fifty years after a 21-year-old woman was killed in her home in a suburb north of Chicago, police are fighting the release of documents in the case, arguing the investigation remains active.

The Chicago Tribune (https://trib.in/2cJ65Rm ) reports that a Cook County judge ordered Kenilworth officials to hand over some of the paperwork Wednesday so she can determine whether the large case file should be allowed to remain confidential.

The question about the files arose days before the 50th anniversary of the crime, which occurred Sept. 18, 1966, because New York lawyer John Kelly sued Kenilworth after it denied his Freedom of Information Act request to view the documents.

Kelly says he doesn’t represent any potential party in the case but is pursuing his own inquiry as a former prosecutor and current civil litigator.
